    I have been thinking of a dual axle enclosed trailer so we can have a more productive system of carrying everything at once. However, I see one problem with productivity. How do you fuel up? Carry gas cans? Move the equipment out and back in? Help me if I am missing something here. Please let me know how you do it?

    I looked at a few enclosed trailers and the ones they classified as snowmobile trailers had two small openings on one side. I asked what they were for because I've seen them before and never could figure out why. They were called fuel doors. Only about a foot by foot door.

    I use a 7'x14' enclosed trailer and I carry gas cans.
    The fuel doors would be a handy option however.

    a lot of companies have the fuel door options... I have a couple of 10 gallon jugs and a few 5 gallon jugs.. I also have some fuel tank mounts in the trailer to keep em in place...

    I also Some of my equipment i can fuel up thru the side door....

    What do you carry in your trailer?

    Fuel up in the trailer! You have a rear ramp door, and (if like most) , a side door. I can position my trailer at the pump to reach 2 mowers in the trailer. One from the rear and one from the side.

    Did you get your trailer fixed?
