    I am interested in buying a 16 ft enclosed trailer.I am wanting to know what the difference in the gas mileage will be between a v nose or flat front trailer.
    I only have 1 ztr,pushmower,2 weedeaters,1 hedge trimmer at this time. I plan on expanding over the next few years.Is a 16ft large enough for 2 ztrs plus other equipment.I have a 16 ft open trailer now and what measurements I've taken it looks like they would fit.What is your opinions on this matter.

    Get the V you won't be disapointed. All of my buddies made fun of me when I bought mine an yet its funny how they all like taking it on trips to go ATVing cause it tows better and we can store alot of random things in the V :cool2:

    Two 60" Z's take up all the room in my trailer. I can put gas cans and a tool box upfront in the V but thats about it, if I take the pushmower it goes in the back of the truck.

    Hi Tor007
    I have a 16' enclosed v nose "Homesteader" Hercules trailer for sale, it is 3 years old and gargae kept, it is used only 2 to 3 times a week, I am part time LCO. It has the landscape package which has the side vents and extra side wall, I had this custom made with extra lenght tongue for easy turning, It is white and is in excellent shape. I paid almost 7 k for it and am asking $3500.00 for it. The reason I am selling it is because I needed a 8.5 wide trailer for my Toro Sidewider. I can hold it for you and can e-mail you pic's of it. You can call me also at 678.234.8662
    I live near Athens Ga. I wanted to PM you but couldn't for some reason. It has the toqueflex axles as well.
