I have the same problem with mine. I use a bungee, but its annoying to have to put it on and off all the time.

I agree no less than 20'. I've got an 18' w/ shelves in the front. 2 wbs and 1 zero just fit. Give yourself room to fit 2 zs and 1 wb though in case you want to switch out a wb for a z sometime

I bought my 1st enclosed trailer in 1989. I had many critics from my friendly competitors. They ask me why I pulled my house with me everywhere I go. Everybody in this business saw me around and knows who I am. Potential customers call my posted phone number while I'm driving down the road. My only regret is the 10 years prior, that I used an open trailer. I have a dump truck for mulch and limbs, etc.

Nice rig there Tree! I was thinking 20' to 24' at most. I would like more pics of the inside here in a few weeks, as I will need to know how how to set mine up.

Thanks Andrew

The trailer is a Wells Cargo but the details of the options I dunno , I bought the trailer from a friend and I am sure that he bought the trailer with the racks there already , the trailer is pretty nice but after five years of tree abuse is starting to
show its age...

DuallyVette, can you please explain how you insulated your trailers? I'm in the same boat with the temperatures being too hott inside the enclosed.
