    My budget is $3500 for an enclosed trailer. I would like a 14' tandem with 36" side door with the ramp back door. It would also be nice if its a v-nose. Does anyone know where (if at all) I can find one new for that price?

    georgia...if you're willing to make the drive. i know plenty are manufactured there and can get a much better deal if you're gonna do the drive. check into some manufacturers out of houston...if im not mistaken, there are a few, so you should be able to get a good deal there too. when i bought my 16 ft v nose, the fella told me there was only like a 100 difference between 14 and 16...and trust me, it was worth the benjamin.

    GA is over 1000 miles away from me. Any savings will be spent in gas. I will, however, take a look in Houston.

    Wells Cargo sells a trailer they make under the name of TC Trecker. I just picked up a 12 ft V nose with a ramp door and a side door for $3000 here in Michigan. Do a web search for TC Trecker trailer and find a dealer close to you. Seems to me that you should be able to buy a 14 ft for that price.

    Good Luck Mike

    Was that a tandem axle? If so thats a heck of a deal. Also, what was the height and width?
