    Does anyone know how much width is lost on the ramp of an enclosed trailer due to the spring assist cables? Or what is the difference between the width of the trailer and the width of the cables on the ramp? I was wondering about the weight of your enclosed trailers too. How much do they weigh and how much weight can you put in them?

    The cables take up very little space. I will get you dimensions and weight limits tomorrow. I have an 8'x18' enclosed and 3000lbs empty comes to mind. I think the gross is 7000lbs. Matt
