    It really depends on what brand trailer. I am in talks with one of my customers who is a well know rapper to buy a enclosed trailer and have it wrapped with his Album cover, Due Date, etc....I think this is a pretty neat idea that I threw his way that he liked. Could turn out to be a win win situation. He gets exposure for his up and coming artist, as well as Album Release dates. I have always said once I bought enclosed, I would sell advertising space on my trailer. Bascially a sponsorship for my trailer.....But I have seen prices from 5500 to 8000.....Just depends on who built the trailer....

    Except Miska builds some of the most herendious trailers I've ever seen, everthing is garbage on those things (landscape trailers) maby thier enclosed are a bit better but buddy has one and says never again! I've seen prices as high as 14K for a nice car hauler with the tool box + bench up front, smooth siding, generator door.....

    I found a 24' (I think an 01) for $4500. New bearings on one of the axles. Newer tires all around. It's a neighbor that used it to go to the Sand Dunes in OK. They bought a dune buggy & had to get a 32'er
