    Does anyone have a recommendation for an enclosed trailer? I dont know if I need a 14 v-nose or 16ft. 7ft wide is preferable. I was looking at the homesteader lineup. Anyone have a review they can do on a homesteader trailer?

    I had an Interstate enclosed for several years - would highly recommend getting the heaviest-duty axles you can get, regardless of brand. Always get bigger than you think you need, 9 times out of 10 you will wish you had the extra space a year later.

    Looks good man, keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I will keep posting pictures as I take them this week.

    MJS: Thats a good point because I wish I had gotten my utility with 5200# axles instead of 3500#. I bought it used so I went with the best deal.

    If you keep the blue trailer i would def recommend painting it black. If you go with an inclosed trailer def atleast 16ft if not 20 prob not v nose i would go flat and put shelfs in the front of it.

    GardnerLawn: I currently have an f150 and pulling a 20 foot enclosed may be a little too heavy full loaded. I have seen guys put shelves in the front of a vnose but I guess it would limit how much you can put on them. Does the blue really look that bad? I know it doesnt go with the red truck.
