    The whole idea of a enclosed trailer is so you dont have to lock the things in side it. It might seems like a back killer but i would rather be sore then have to go spend 500 dollars!!

    umm there are MANY ideas behind enclosed trailers.

    personally when actually working I use my enclosed trailer as I would an open trailer. ramp door hits the pavement as soon as I arrive and doesn't go up until I'm finished using whatever equipment I take out the rear ramp. which happens to be my trimmers, edgers and mowers. then the side door opens and stays open until I'm finished using whatever equipment I take out the side door. which happens to be my blower.

    my reason for using an enclosed trailer is primarily to keep my equipment from the elements. secondly I can lock things up overnight by just locking the ramp door and side door. and thirdly when working in the field it takes a closer look to see what I actually have in there rather than observing an open trailer from a distance or driving by. you can't see inside an enclosed trailer as well or quickly as you can see what's on an open trailer when driving by or taking a quick look from across the street while walking.

    I hear ya Nredo - Homeowners have more rights w/the law than if you are on someone else property.

    My post was about the bad guys and their crew coming back for revenge.
    And I hear that happens way more than we think. Look, they mess if w/people for no good reason, they darn tootin' going to come back for you for messin' with one of them.
