    Enclosed Trailers?

    Who's had one, what is the model you had and what were your likes and dislikes? Any brands to stay away from? I'm looking at getting one to haul 1 maybe two UTV's in or a car. Don't have a car or 2 UTV's so I might be looking at short ones too to make it easier to get around with.

    I've got a "cheapo" Interstate. If you will haul more than 2 UTVs, go straight for 5200 axles and beefier suspension. 3500 axles are holding up under mine, but my buggy is fairly light, and i'm still looking for a set of beefier axle with less drop to upgrade and increase ground clearance.

    I've got a 7x16 TNT enclosed trailer, it was one of the cheaper ones I could find at the time. Only complaint I have is the floor joists are 24" on center, made me a little nervous listening to it creak the one time I put a car in there. But its probably fine, I'm sure most of them are built the same way

    I have had a Mirage trailer for about 10 years now and it has served me well. 10000 lb rating. It is 20' and I fit 5 full size quads along with gear. As long as my axles stay bolted to the trailer the tires wear even and it tows well.

    I have two Haulmarks Edge trailers, one a 40' gooseneck and one is a 32' bumper pull toy hauler if you want to look at the quality the trailers feel free to stop by. Goosenecks tow better imo but finding a short one is kinda tough. If you are going to haul something extra tall or wide the inner dimensions should be looked at. If looking to haul a car I would look at a 10,000lb trailer as the trailer itself will likely weigh in at over 3000 pounds.

    I had two TPD's , they had great frames and axles. The outer skins are pretty much all alike. I have done numerous repairs on the old Charmacs.
