    I've read alot of posts of people looking for enclosed trailers and trying to find a good one for a good price so i'll show you what i bought for what i think is a really good deal for around here. it's a 8.5x20ft V-nose,ramp door,RV style latch sidedoor, 3500lbs axles, brakes on both axles, int lights, aluminum rims, It was 6199.99 plus taxes. I've got alot of work today i'm putting in a little bit of a living courters in the front of it with a futon, cuboards, micro wave, mini fridge, wall mounted tv. I bought the trailer for work and i use it for motorcross racing as well, so i still should have more then enough room for my work stuff.. I haven't decided what floor i want to put in. my old trailer i put in vinyl flooring one piece and i will never do that again ripped and looked like crap in no time. whats the cheapest best lasting flooring to put in???

    Seems like a good deal, where did you bought it from?

    and for the floor I think some paint would work some sand mix into it. I'm sure their is some products for that but I can't remember the name.

    get some bedliner from autozone called herculiner. 3 coats of that will keep it lasting forever and youll get good traction as well. go up the side walls too and youll be completely waterproof.

    this is what im going to do when we pick up our 8.5x20 enclosed this spring

    Bedliner is the best bet for sure. Just know that it will add more weight than a similar vinyl floor would. The traction the bedliner provides is more than worth the price of installation.

    I bought it from a some dealer in ST. Thomas, Clentec he lists all his stuff on Kijiji in Hamilton or Toronto adds. I couldn't even find this trailer anywhere close to this price when I was looking..

    You roll the bedliner on and its not heavy enough to add any weight like linex would be. Mines going on its 3rd season of use with no touch ups and trailer gets used for mowers, leaves, dirtbikes, etc. I got the bedliner from walmart. Posted pics a few threads down. Definately the best and most cost efficient.
