    Anyone know anything about this line of enclosed trailers, or own one.
    I got a quote on a 7x14 WC Fast Trac, V Nose, with HD rear ramp door for $3,600 which seems pretty good price. They would offer a 5' side ramp for an additional $400 for a total of $4K.

    Not sure how these trailers spec out to others???

    I think the price is about right with others . That's a pretty common size have you looked at used trailers , you might save a few bucks . 14 and 16 footers are plentiful around these parts .

    We just bought a 24 footer Saturday , used trailers in this size were no cheaper . So it was better buying new . Good luck

    Is there a big difference in having a V-nose or not?

    It's suppose to cut the wind better , but if your not doing much driving it really doesn't matter . Also you can make tighter turns since you don't have the trailer corners to worry about . The V does give you about 2 extra feet up front .

    Old thread, but DA or anyone else want to give some current opinions on the Fast Trac Wells Cargo trailers. They seem inexpensive, so I am assuming you get what you pay for. Here they are $3,000.00 for a 6 X 12 enclosed. I believe they are the least expensive Wells Cargo trailers. I am curious if they hold up well, or at all.
    I am currently looking at these, as well as Carmate. Sure-Trac, Diamond Cargo, and Continental. I am looking to put a 48" Viking, a 30" Exmark and a 20" mower in it. So that isn't much weight.

    You get what you pay for with enclosed trailers. Haulmark or a real wells cargo will stand the day to day abuse. The cheap trailers will not last. The fastrac looks like a cheaply built trailer from the website.
