    Just bought a 6x12 enclosed Kristi. I like it. Tows straight true. So far it seems pretty well made, a little messy on the wood paneling interior, also the paint on the a frame has pruned. They also use those "snap over" electrical connectors. I forget the real name but they go over the wire, then you squeeze with a pair of pliers and the metal "blade" cuts through the insulation making the connection (very cheap and cheesy in my opinion), it also causes the wires to corrode. I also keep smacking my head getting out of the trailer as the back door header is too low for my liking. All in all though I am very pleases with it. Dry inside, and the doors lock snug. just my 0.02, hope it helps

    Get one off ebay. I just won one this afternoon and will pick it up this weekend. 24' x 8' with gvwr of 10k.

    I got it to haul and store my car but it would work good for a grass cutting business storage center. Especially with the 3 doors and 2 ramps.

    thats awesome, i wanted a side /front ramp door too but it adds at least $600-900 to the price of most local trailers, for that much no thanks.
