    i would like to purchase an 18ft enclosed trailer to house my mowing equipment.i believe this would aide me in not having to load/unload everyday.this also creates security from thieves and elements.any pros/cons?anyone have any good trailer pics?

    Enclosed trilers are they provide a cleaner look to any business, provide storage, but be prepared to pull the mowers out at the gas station. :D

    I agree with troblandscape, storage is nice, all your equipment is with you at all times, you look more professional. Here is a pic of my new trailer

    That is a nice looking trailer. Looks very professional. I find that the enclosed is better but as far as the gas issue goes, just get a large gas tank for the back of the truck.

    I've been shopping the enclosed market and I'm leaning towards Pace. I went over some of the options with the dealer and I'm going to get the translucent roof and they also have a fuel door option. For 46$ I can get a 12 inch by 12 inch door, I'm going to get 2 on each side on a 8x20 trailer.
