    I have been researching our enclosed trailer for a month and am settled on the 16' plus 3' v-nose. We are going to haul our dingo and hardscaping equip. Go to a dealer w/ a tape measure and walk in the different sizes with a rough layout of your equipment in mind. I like the v-nose for additional shelf space w/o much more over all length as well as fuel economy. Consider access as well. Good luck.

    what type of truck are u going to haul ur V-nose with? they are not good on stake bodies or dumps and difficult to shelve that area efficiently too.

    Mckee, what possible difference do stake trucks or dump trucks have when towing a v-nose. The three foot v-nose I am talking about has a rounded v, not a point, allowing for decent (although not a perfect) shelving situation.

    the overhang on the v's come to close to the back of a stake body overhang. they jack knife way to easy when backing up. i just had to extend the hitch on my buddies stake body for his trailer and it is a flat nose.

    it all depends on what equipment you have to put in the trailer? demos and tampers or a dingo and demos and teampers? give us an ide of equipment you want to haul and store inside.
