    Ok so this is my second year running an open trailer after several using enclosed.

    Definitely never buy another enclosed.

    Too many benefits to open.

    The only things I miss about enclosed are better security and more ad space.

    Kinda feel sorry for the guys hauling enclosed now.:sleeping:

    I have an open trailer and kind of wish it were an enclosed! To each his own I guess.

    Haha. You feel sorry for guys that use enclosed trailers? Too Funny. Enclosed trailers help you look more professional or shall I say, distinguished. Seriously, it really doesn't matter that much. To each it's own.

    Man I used an open trailer for about 5 years and couldn't wait to get a enclosed trailer. I love the fact that it stays out of the weather, I don't have to unload it at the end of the day or load it up in the morning. Plus it's nice security also. I love the enclosed and just use the dump for hauling debris

    I dont know how the guys fuel up with those enclosed.... Or run around with a motor home in the back.. That would drive me crazy. I get the idea but would slow me down about 2 hours out of the day for sure. Closterphobia all over the place.. I'm out in country so security is a non issue and i put my stuff in the barn every night, they like it in there haha. Open and free for me!

    Fueling up is easy. When I know I'm going to get gas I put the fuel cans in the bed of the truck. My mower only has about a 4 gallon tank so it's not huge and the rest is mixed.

    Well that doesn't make any sense to me. I got 24 gallons of gas to fill(2 Z's) and then the mix fuel which I have right by the hitch area. I don't deal with cans an at

    I've been looking at getting a new Z and it has a 12 gal tank. If I go that route I'm getting the fuel cell to go in the trailer or my truck. To each their own.

    Yea...fueling and equipment access and keeping stuff clean from airflow when driving are three that save me countless hrs.
