Enclosed trailers

I have a Lark dealer in town that just got in a 2011 Continental Cargo Sunshine trailer its 7x18 has custom cabinets inside and a front work bench. Only problem I see is 1 bald tire.NO wear and no dents. I didnt get under it to see if it was leafs or torsion axle. He wants $3495 for it sounds like a good price to me

Ive seen mixed reviews on this line of trailers. Does anyone have one or any opinions on it or the Lark line? Im thinking of picking up a 16ft or 18ft enclosed soon
Should I just get a Haulmark and pay more

Thanks

Depending on the size truck you have, go bigger for an enclosed trailer. I have a 7 x 16 and wish I would have went at least 8 x 18. I'm currently looking at trading up for an 8.5 x 22 or 24. The extra width is crucial though. Just my $0.02.

I agree....go with a 8.5 width.....I just bought a 8.5x20 haulmark and love it.

Just my opinon i had a 8x16 but i found pulling it behind a pickup in the city was tough because the trailer is so much wider than the truck so your always watching the corners. In the city i actually went down to a 7x16 homesteader and like that a lot more easyer to drive. it all depends on what your pulling it with and where your driving.

Do all of the tires match exactly? If so, maybe bent axle?
