    Can anyone tell me if they know of a company that makes a V-nose enclosed trailer that's 8.5' wide and at least 20' long, preferably 24' long?

    Most of what I see is that the widest is 7.5'

    I need something wider for when I run my Trac-Vag bagger, can't fit the boot out the side of the deck on a 60" deck inbetween the wheel wells on something that skinny.

    Looking for a V-nose so I can run my fert. spreader out the front door instead of always having to pull everything off the trailer.

    I have a 20 foot, aluminum, v nose. It is a continental cargo brand (the actual company is Forest River, they also make trailers for cargo mate, US cargo, and others).

    To be honest, I would not recommend this trailer brand. I have had this trailer for 5 months and several things have broken and several trim pieces have fallen off. In my opinion, poor quality.

    My next trailer I will spend the money and get either a Wells Cargo or Featherlite.

    Oh ya, one more thing. My 20 foot trailer is also 8.5 wide. I do the exact same thing as you mention, I use the v-nose to pull out my fert spreader. I like the v-nose, just one more nice option to pull things out.

    You can also try aluminum trailer company.

    Yeah, I've got a '98 24 x 8.5' Classic Dominator right now that'll be pushing 175,000 miles by the end of the summer. Nothing's wrong with it, just think it'd be nice to upgrade the trailer next year.

    Anyone else?
