    This will work for me better than my 10 foot open. Which brand? I looked at Haulmark today. A single axle with 3,500 pound axle for 2,850. Any other brands? I am uneducated on enclosed trailers. I like the v nose tho for sure.

    Be prepared every enclosed trailer I've had bent the axle and they were all 6x12 trailers with 3500lbs axles. I only carry hand helds 32 w/b and a 1000lbs wright z. I owned a Haulmark which was my first trailer. I would say they make a good trailer.

    wow that doesn't seem like too much weight to bend the axle. I will be much heavier a 48 hydro 54 hydro w sulky and a honda hrc 216 plus trimmers, blowers, etc. Single axle won't be strong enough then. My 10 foot open has a 3,000 pound axle and havent had any problems it is an 07. Enclosed must be heavier than 500 pounds more than an open then I would guess.

    Different style axles. They have torsion axles I believe is what they're called. They drop the trailer closer to the ground over an open trailer.

    I added up the weight it will be a little under 3,000 with the weight of the trailer included. It may be asking too mmuch like fl said to put about 7,500 miles a year on it roughly. I called the manufactuer Haulmark. They make a few different v nose. Passport or transport. I read the specs hard to determine the difference besides the price. Transports are more money. Do you buy a passport with 2 axles? It would be about 3,200, or the transport with 2 axles at about 3,900? Any input?
