    Just picked up our new enclosed hauler last week, cant believe we waited so long to make the move! Its a 8x18 Horton Hybrid V-nose with side ramp. Its going to the graphics shop tomorrow, really excited! We are it out with Gridiron racking system and the flooring is rubber tread plate, a must!

    Nice trailer. How much more for the side ramp door, wheels & floor upgrade? Is that a 48" side door?

    The trailer was fabricated with 54" side ramp and 92" on the aft ramp. It has an additional 6" of ceiling height, upgraded wheels/radials. Not bragging, it's a jam up hauler. It cost $ 5570 out the door. The Gridiron racking system was purchased from a venor who decided to discontinue selling it. I purchased a display they had taken down. The items totaled well over $500, they sold it $150, another sweet deal. We are really impressed with this enclose, pulls great loaded!

    nice trailer, why the side ramp and not just the door seems it might be a pain to unlosd a machine if you park close to trees, house, a curb or uneven terrain, is it that hard to unload one extra machine from the rear to get the one in the front out? seems that would be great for atvs or snow moblies and not so much for work, you would have to be careful eher you park it so to be able to utlize both doors, either way still love new equipment and like to see it lettered
