Theft-enclosed trailer

I have been experiencing some problems with people trying to steal my equipment off of my racks on my open trailer. I had to replace two shafts this week due to someone trying to steal them and bending the shafts to a 45 degree angle. Does anyone know if there are enclosed trailers out there that will fit (height wise) in a standard size garage? Tanks - - Jon

My brothers 7x14x6 was about 3" too tall to fit in his garage. I'd measure the height of the opening at youe house before going off of any thing else.

Why not use locks on your open trailer?

Standard gar garage door is 7ft high, going to be real hard to find an enclosed trailer of any size that will clear.

My city ordinances state I have to park my enclosed trailer in a garage. They fail to understand most landscaping / mowing trailers are as big as a garage. And for due reason. They store just as much.

Round about way of answering your question.

I do lock the equipment. These punks tried to stand on my stihl shafts to get them out of the locked rack and simply left me with 2 bent shafts that cost $250 to repair. What a pain!

If you want to go further than locks on enclosed trailers I'd suggest buying one without a side door. Just make sure you back the trailer up against something that doesn't allow for the back door to be lowered. The only way to get in even with bolt cutters would be to move the trailer.
