Nice how tall is the interior height? I wish mine was 7 1/2 high. I'm always bashing my head esp. on the stander.

Did you go with a 16" wheel?

Better call and tell them to add the rear roller wheels!!!!! I wouldn't buy a enclosed with out them. Your rear jacks will help some but not enough. Seriously get them, they are around 150 extra and you will be sooo glad you did.

I am also looking to buy a 18ft enclosed this season, but I am dreading having to learn to use my mirrors to back up, I cannot do it, I have to physically turn around and look thru my rear window to steer my 16ft open trailer now, everytime I try to use my mirrors, I cant steer it? But I guess I will learn, when I first started pulling a trailer, I had trouble backing an open trailer, now I can parallel park it if needed.

My GF said I better get an enclosed that has room for a small bed and living quarters in case we get in a bad fight!!! Ive seen some that have small fridges and tvs, and even bathrooms!
