    I've been looking for a new enclosed trailer and found a new 16ft long and 7ft wide and 6.6ft tall with a ramp door and side door. Roof vent and aluminum diamond plate stone guard on the front for $3699.00 good or bad or fair price? Any comments would help me allot thanks.

    I would not assume that is a good price without knowing more information. There are a lot of poorly built trailers out there that sell for cheaper prices.

    What brand is it? Do you now the model? How is it constructed (spacing of floor, wall, and roof beams). What kind of axles does it have (torsion or spring)?

    Eclipse is right, alot of low end built trailers out there. I bought my Cargo Pro which is not the highest quality built trailer out here but certainly not the cheapest for $4800 new in '04, thats a 8x16 enclosed w/ 3/4" floor, ramp door, side door, vents, interior lights, and electric brakes, but with flimsy 1/4" interior walls. The tung is just basic V and not triple re-enforced like the contractors grades come with. I also had to put D-rings in it to strap things down. Look closely at the construction, if it fits your needs and you think it'll do than don't hesitate to buy, but just remember, "You get what you pay for".
