    I have looked at several enclosed trailers and I am considering a Horton Hauler that is 16 X 7. The trailer descriptions are as follows: V Nose, 5000 lb. axles with electric brakes on both, 12" center floor supports, heavy duty spring assisted ramp door, 30" side door with a bar lock, electric jack, 4 dome lights, Heavy Duty D Rings, 3/4" plywood covering the interior walls, radial tires with a spare, aluminum load bearing wheels and bearing buddies. The trailer has been priced approximately $4786.00 + TTL. I have looked at several different brands and the Horton Hauler seems to be the heaviest built for the money and any further assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I have never heard of the Horton Hauler...but from what you say it sounds like a decent trailer. I really like the 12" on center floor supports. We are in the process of buying a trailer...i think we are leaning towards the Wells Cargo...and its a 8x24 with 16" on centers. The electric jack sounds really nice also. If you wanna see a top notch trailer setup check out etwman's...thats a real class act!:blob1:

    I have a 7x16 enclosed. Wish it had the V-Nose, but I do not haul a lot on the interstate, so its not a problem. If you do a lot of traveling with it I would think its a must. Reduced drag and better gas mileage.

    you cant go wrong with a vnose. towing em is so nice when you are above 50 mph or so. i have an 8 by 14 v nose, and i wish had a 16 foot or bigger. the space will fill up quick. the trailer you priced sounds like a good one. good luck with it.

    I'm also thinking about a v-nose, a 7x21", that way I could haul my mowers, and work related tools, also haul my quads and snowmobiles, I like the front ramp, the one I looked at was a haulmark and the front ramp was on the road side, wonder if you can get them on the curb side? I priced one at $ 4095.00, plus tax etc. How does that price sound, if you guys know where there cheaper let me know, I love to travel, within reason that is. see ya

    I've always been kinda partial to Pace trailers. They look like they're built better than most others.

    Never heard of Horton. Haulmark & Wells Cargo are the best around here.
