Enclosed trailer

Decided I need an enclosed trailer this year. Which ones are good? What features should I look for?

I have a haulmark trailer 8.5x20 its a good size i recommend the extended tongue, minimum 5200lb axles, and a small door or window about in the middle of the trailer so you can pass the gas pump through and fill your machines. i dont have it in mine but i have seen them online and it really looks like a great idea. having to unload your trailer to refuel is no fun and takes time. i like the size of mine i really like the 8.5 wide plenty of room to move past equipment with things hanging on the walls.

Well I narrowed down my choices between a new Cargo Mate or a used Wells Cargo. I went with the Wells Cargo.

What are you carrying? How much equipment? That will help determine the size you will need. Always go a little bigger than you need.
