    I have talked to this dealership before and they were nice. But at the time the open trailer was more affordable and fit my operation better
    there are a few options and alot of sizes. I know prices vary alot by region but maybe this will give you some ideas anyway

    Look into getting the floor, ramp and 2' up on all the walls coated with Line-X bed liner.

    Trust me on this.

    First of I believe any enclosed trailer needs brakes. Get any hard side wind when towing and you can lose control of it real quick.

    Most trailers the ramp and barn doors are the same price.

    Wells cargo is the only way to go. They are built to last 15 year of hard use dished out by maintain crews. I love mine.

    Green pastures is right about the linex. Soon as I replace the 1/4" plywood in my trailer with some 1/2" or 5/8" plywood. It will get linex on the floor and sides.

    As for price you can spend from $2000 to $5000 on a 6 by 12. Trailer mate (the TSC and lowes trailers) are the low end of the price Wells cargo would be at the high end of the price.

    get the HD ramp door, vents, brakes, dove tail, plywood sides, lights inside, side door, tandem axle, and thats about all I can think of... that wouldnt be more than 3500 around here... good luck!

    edit: also make sure you get the additional 6" on the roof so its eaiser to walk around in

    Yea that is an option I am going to get on my next enclosed. My door opening is 5' 8" and I am 5' 9" Inside is 6'. But one employee is 6' 1" and is forever bitching about the low height. I have knocked myself out cold once because I forgot to duck. My employee hits his head at least twice a week on my trailer.

    ya thats another reason I got the 20foot instead of 16, because they didnt have any 16's in stock with the extra height, but boy am I glad I got the 20 footer, its already filled up!

    What would be a decent price on a 7' x 16' Haulmark or Wells Cargo?
