    hey guys. i have a 5x10 open trailer, i got it used for $325, and i absolutly hate it, the gate has to be welded and it needs new boards. how much would an enclosed trailer be? btw, a 98dakota 3.9 v6 is pulling it and im not getting a bigger truck, and i just want to be able to fit 2 48's in, 2 21's, and my edgers,trimmers, and blowers, and a few mexicans (jk about the mexicans). what size do u think i will need? i only have 1 48 for now, but i plan to upgrade later this year to another 48. please help. thanks.

    Pretty much what you want to spend on it. for a 5x10 single axel you may be able to get a deal. They are worth every penny though, i just got a 7x14 dual axel and i love it. Mine has torsion axels, breaks, rear gate and side door, and a few other little things and was about $4000.

    I think your biggest question is going to be how much can your Dakota tow!!! I think size wise you will want at least a 6x12, but if you hunt around you will find 7' units that have interior fenders. They have the tire with of a 6 footer with a lot more space inside...Chuck
