    Hello guys I'm posting for the first time in ages I mostly lurk but I cant think of a better forum to ask this question, I'm looking at buying an enclosed trailer for mowing it will carry three ZTR scags and some hand tools. I've looked at a 24 ft haulmark and a pace american which was abour 1,400.00 more. They are both 24 ft car haulers with ramp doors. Question is this what brands are good/bad and what should I be getting on these trailers? What should I be looking for? Thanks ahead of time.

    I looked at a 24 ft trailer ,but bought a 12 ft Haulmark. The 24 would be great but we thought it may be a pain towing around through neighborhoods. The 12 works for us barely and I have 2nd guessed my choice ,but for now it will do. I've been happy with the Haulmark if that helps ,and they do have a good financing deal.

    Stay away from interstate trailers. Do a search, I have talked at length about enclosed trailers the components that fail etc.

    Haulmark and Pace would be my top two choices. Also, they are what is more commonly available in my area, therefore I would have good support at the dealer should I need it.

    I have a Haulmark (not orginally purchased for Lawn Care, but I made it work) and it is a well built trailer.

    As far as what to get on it, that is up to your prefference adn your needs. I can only say make sure you have a ramp door, interior lights and a roof vent. Beyond that, it is up to you.
