That's absurd!

We just stand the shovels up against the house and be on our merry way.

If it's a walkway in the front of the house (more visible) - then we stash the tamper and saw behind the shrubbery.

Really, the only positive I see to using an enclosed trailer is the advertising benefit, the lettering on the sides. Other than that, you're just complicating the logistics. Tugging that thing back and forth everyday. Loading and unloading. Something else prone to random roadside DOT inspections. Annual tire purchases. Another unit that needs washed and cleaned. Brakes to upkeep. When we pull our racing trailer the tow vehicle guzzles fuel, so that's a negative.

Looks so cool. Too many complications. Not a necessity.
If you have an enclosed, why would you drag it away to and from?
Lock the door, wheels and hitch,and have your stuff there.

I can't afford an enc. trailer, so I just run a chain through all the handles and bases with a couple locks on it around the corner out of sight.
