    Im tossing around getting an enclosed trailer. After you got yours did you consider it a wise investment? Im getting tired of the open trailer!

    They are a great investment.
    weather protection
    carry more items
    advertising space
    resale value is excellent
    don't have to unload

    cost up front
    access is not as good as open

    spend the extra money in the beginning and order with a ramp door on the side. Nothing better then not having to move something off to get whats in front out.

    I can get 2 ZD28's on a 16' so you should be able to get 3 on a 24'.
