    Went shopping for an enclosed trailer, found a 14' V nose, twin axles with brakes built by Horton Mft. Priced alittle under 3800, out the door. Is Horton a good brand of enclosed? I will be selling this trailer as soon as we find a replacement.

    They look to be well made and rank up there with Pace, and Haulmark as far as I can tell. I have no expereince with them and I cannot say that I have seen any in our area. Good luck.

    I've never heard of them, but what do I know:hammerhead: ...Anyway, sounds kind of cheap for that size trailer. What does it come with? i.e... heavy duty ramp door, what # axles, roof vent, doom lights, side door w/bar lock or handle lever, framing spacing - 16" OC or 12" OC, what kind of framing - "C" channel or Channel, how thick is the floor, thickness of walls, torsion or leaf spring. ect......

    List goes on and on. Just thought I'd point out a few things before you buy. For that kind of $$$ get something thats gonna last and your gonna like.
