When shopping for your next enclosed trailer, here are a few questions to ask before making your purchase.
Aluminum or Steel: While this may be partially personal preference, you need to decide if you want an aluminum enclosed trailer or a steel enclosed trailer. While aluminum trailers are lighter, they are also slightly higher in price point, which also means they have a higher resell value. Both steel and aluminum trailers will require maintenance to ensure longevity.
V-nose or Flat Nose: This is mainly a decision of aesthetics. The V-nose enclosed trailer does tend to have a slight amount of extra interior area and tends to perform better in high wind conditions. A common misconception is that the V-nose trailers get better gas mileage, while in reality both varieties are relatively the same when it comes to your MPG.
Ramp Gate or Barn Doors:Depending on what you are hauling, you will need different styles of doors. The ramp door is a must have if you will be driving something, like a vehicle or snowmobile, onto the trailer. If you are needing a trailer to haul inventory and cargo though, such as items to sell at swap meets, then the barn doors would be more beneficial as you will end up with slightly more interior space.
