Because it comes standard with top of the line safety features, such as electric brakes on both axles, a 2,000-pound A-frame jack, break away kit, 6-inch I-beam steel frame, and cross members-24 inches on center, our 7x16 enclosed trailer  easily handles a wide range of goods, including ATVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and even compact cars.

With our menu of possibilities, choosing them is as simple as placing an order at your favorite restaurant! With over ten custom colors available, customers may even choose something besides our white standard trailer color.

Regardless of how you'll be using this trailer, there's no question that having electrical capabilities on board ramps up the possibilities considerably. That's why we offer the choice of an affordable electrical package. At the price point of just $330, having 2 receptacles, 2 switches, 2 4-foot fluorescent lights and a 60 amp breaker box with life line is hard to pass up! If you don't need the whole package, no problem! You may also choose your own electrical add-ons individually, including 110-volt receptacles, 4-foot fluorescent lights, LED tail lights, and more.

Can You Make More Money with an Enclosed Trailer or an Open Flatbed?

Although comparing an open flatbed trailer with an enclosed trailer for your work trailer needs is not an "apples to apples" assessment, they each definitely have their own sets of positive attributes. At, our experienced sales reps are happy to discuss which of our trailers can do the best job for you.

Open Flatbed Trailers

The open flatbed trailer is built tough and is able to carry a variety of items, including ATVs, landscaping equipment, motorcycles, and heavy equipment such as compact bulldozers and backhoes. Its open design makes it convenient in terms of accessibility. That's why many of the sizes sold by are an excellent choice for hevy-duty equipment trailing.

As with all of our products, the list of extra options is extensive. Some of the most frequently requested are landscape baskets, ratchet straps, folding gates, and extra ramps. These are workhorses all right, and can accommodate between 7,000 GVW to 20,000 GVW, depending on the chosen trailer size.  Shop Open Deck Trailers.

Enclosed Trailers

Enclosed trailers can also accommodate heavy duty equipment and have the bonus of providing protection from the elements. Depending on how the trailer is being used, this aspect can change things up considerably. Keeping equipment, vehicles or products in an enclosed space certainly safeguards them from inclement weather and other scenarios, such as theft and damage from highway collisions.

There is no question that using an enclosed trailer will extend the life of its cargo, and in turn your profit margin because with an enclosed trailer, you'll also prolong the life of the items you are carrying.

Yet another perk this style offers is the ability to advertise with your logo and business copy such as phone number and web site on its exterior portions. So it seems even with the extra expense, the enclosed trailers kill many birds with one stone.

Just like all of our products, the enclosed trailers may be up fitted with over 500 different options such as cabinetry, shelving, lighting, different door and window styles, plus your choice of ramps, wall and floor materials. Shop Enclosed Trailers.
