    I am Now in the market for a enclosed trailer. Though they are not cheap, the convienence of storage and not having to unload equipment every night will make it worth it. Today I was at A pace dealer and the trailers looked very nice and looked very heavy duty. The price they quoted me for a 16ft by 7ft trailer with a side door and ramp door in the back with spring assist was $4300.00. That priced seemed very fair to me compared to other brands i have looked at and i would like to no if there is a catch. I did a search for pace trailers but the discussions on them were very broad. I would like to hear owners opinions on them. Thanks for your help.

    Evan, do a search on Pace trailers. On a past topic I think I remember a couple Pace owners who were not happy with how durable they were. Check on Haulmark also, I know of no one who is dissatisfied with them.

    I have a base price for a US cargo 7x16 at around 4,200, but that includes nothing. Add on things like side door, spring assist, roof vents, sidewall scoop vents, dome lights/switches, wolmanized flooring, diamond plate stone guard, 10 degree down axle(2 inch lift), 56" tube ext. on tongue (a must if you are pulling with a mason dump), and 16" on center cross members, your looking at around 5150.

    Make sure you are comparing apples to apples here. There are a LOT of extras that can make a big difference.

    Also, If your going with the 7x16, I would suggest bouncing up to a 8x18. The price difference is about 400, but the difference in space is tremendous.

    For comparisions I paid $4800 for my Haulmark 7x16 with side door, finished ceilings, interior lights, polished rims, & roof vent.

    Kirbyslawn, did you buy that trailer for new? Because that price seems like it would be used.

    8x18 is nice,there isnt much you cant in that.The only downside is that it is harder to see around,need even wider mirrors.I was looking at an 8x 24,but its longer than I need it.Price is right,only 1 yr old
