    Best enclosed trailer brands?

    We may be in the market for an enclosed trailer, probably 6’ x 12’.

    What are the best brands? Bought our Aluma utility trailer at Drinkwater trailer sales, but they seem to stock Haulmark and EZ Hauler, not the Aluma enclosed.

    What about ramp rear door versus barn doors?

    I love the ramp door, would never look at a trailer with barn doors.

    I have an older Pace 14' which seems overbuilt and should last a long time. I think Pro-Line makes a great trailer. You can tour their operation, and they'll custom build the trailer pretty much any way you want it, provided your pockets are deep enough.

    Ramp is easier, but you lose storage space on the back doors.

    What is a best option enclosed trailer or open trailer

    Upside is no need for ramps. I prefer ramp rear door.


    Go aluminum frame if you can, and 7’ interior height.



    What is the intended purpose?

    I wish I had one.

    Which Utility Trailer Works Best for Your Lawn Business?

    Their headquarters/manufacturing is about 11 miles from my house, and the owners have been clients of mine. I have toured their assembly and got a quote on what I want, I'm saving my pennies

    Purpose would help a lot. But good advice overall.
    I wouldn’t even look at barn door either.

    Drop down all day.
    Aluminum is awesome but $$$$$.
    Without knowing what you needed for I’ll say don’t buy new. You can find fairly good deals on the Craigslist/fb.

    Proline if you want a high quality trailer and level of service that is second to none.
    Then again, you might save a few bucks and buy elsewhere...which you'll likely do.

    I had Proline spec me out an open utility trailer, the only feature that I would like and didn't ask cause I didn't see as an option on their list, would be oak plank flooring rather than marine plywood

    barn door can be left open without tripping up anyone or taking up extra driveway paths.

    I mounted up all my sprays and small bottles of fluids on the barn doors to use that space as well. you cannot do that with a ramp.

    If you do go barn door. Please be mindful of those parked near you and winds.

    Don't be that guy that just tosses his door open, lets it get caught in the wind and slam into the fender of the nearly-brand new pickup parked next to it. I so didn't need that.

    Mine has chains that keep it from opening all the way. They open a little passed 90 degrees with the chains.

    I appreciate folks asking intended purpose, but that really depends on what’s available, how it tows etc.

    What is a best option enclosed trailer or open trailer

    Track days would be one use but not the only use. And we will likely be towing regularly (2-3X per year) to the far west: Colorado or Montana. So light weight, good aero, strength/security, lighting and features are all in play.

    Wanted to get some consensus on what brands were top-notch, then I can talk to them about size, options etc.

    As examples,

    • barn door vs. single piece
    • 6’, 6’6, or 7’ ceilings
    • If we need brakes and whether they have electric brakes as an option.

      Trailer Options & Customization

      Our Tahoe has an integrated controller, Outback 3.6R does not. It appears most of thrm will be under 4K loaded so we could tow with either. Many states require brakes over 3,000 lbs GVWR.
