I like to go up about a foot on the walls with the bedliner and paint the walls a nice grey or something. Keeps the walls from getting all scratched up. Some kinda cabinet system and a 20' trailer would definately be getting a 10 or 15 gallon pre mix tank up front.

I am very interested in this thread as we are looking at adding an enclosed trailer before the season gets into full swing.

I just bought 2 new enclosed trailers. They were built by Sharp MFG. In Blue Rapids Kansas. They are very similar to an H&H. They have the smooth skin on the sides. I highly recommend the trailers and as a small manufacturer they are willing to custom build them like you want it. Both my trailers are 16ft. For me the 20ft is just too long, not saying it is not right for you! I am currently finishing them for my use.

Smooth skin exterior (no fasteners to come loose and looks good with the logo)

Linex the floor. (I used herculiner myself and saved about $1500) This protects the trailer and help to keep equipment from moving around.

Work bench with vise and tools.

Trimmer rack, blower rack ect.

Heavy axles and tires.

12 volt deep cycle battery, power inverter and a good 12 volt air compressor.

Vent in the roof. (get the hot air and gas fumes out)

12 volt lights on the inside

Wide side door.

There is more but I am tired of typing.

what ever you do take a look at triton trailers not cheap at all, all alum. they have an awesome tie down system and very high quality and so many different options I know you can get a 22ft trailer with a 5 ft V for under 3000 lbs and right around 7000lbs extra for all your tools. I do not work for them at all I have just owned one and they are great. Take a look at their website they have a trailer builder to
