Finally ordered my New Enclosed Trailer!

well decided to spend the money and have my trailer built how i wanted it.

8.5' x 18' with 2' V-nose
5200lb axles wit brakes,
dual roof vents, 3/4 plywood 24" around inside, side vents to clear out fumes while driving.
dual interior light with switches near side door and rear ramp door, stablizer jacks in rear,

ordered it in charcoal gray to match the secondary color on my F250.

it should be ready in about 2weeks. gunna oder all new racks for the inside. cant wait it to be delivered and have a really cool design for the graphics!

total came to $5800 with TTL

I just purchased a few green touch racks from amazon the other day cause they were the cheapest I found. I had to order the xtreme 103 rack instead of the xtreme 104 because I could not find anyone with the xtreme 104.

WHat brand of trailer? I'd LOVE to have one... in a 20'. But I also want a passenger side ramp door, and drivers side walk-in door. (because of where I park it at home the drivers side front is really the only access I'd have inside unless I move it every time to get into it). The price you paid isn't to bad. Better than I think mine would cost... I'm guessing around $7K.

Don't forget the PICS when you get it!

Oh, and if you want racks, the Xtreme racks are awesome! They come with all the stuff needed to mount them in an enclosed, and you really can't find them any cheaper anywhere online than just buying them directly from Green Touch. Trust me, I spent a long time trying to save even $10 on my rack and couldn't. (the prices elsewhere may be less but the shipping will get ya.)

You guys down south are lucky when it comes to trailers. Looked at a new 18' yesterday, no v nose, bare bones trailer that had been sitting....asking $6299 and they dont come down. Rediculous. We made a short road trip outta getting my last enclosed down south and will be doing so again. Looks like you are doing well Krazy!

I'll probably be needing a new trailer here soon, wish I was willing to have one custom built.

That trailer should be really nice, I want to see pictures when you get it!!!!
