Open vs. Enclosed Trailers - What are the Benefits?

When it comes to finding the right cargo trailer, would an enclosed trailer work best for your needs? Or does an open deck trailer make more sense? In today's post, we'll review the basic pros and cons of each to help you make an informed decision.

Enclosed Trailers - Higher Cost, Higher Value?

In general, people assume that because something costs more, it must mean it's more valuable. Well, that's certainly true in many cases. But it's not always that simple. Value is relative. Features that one person finds valuable, another person may not care about. In regard to enclosed cargo trailers, the value lies in the following main benefits:

  • Additional storage/more versatile space
  • Equipment and other items can be securely left in the trailer, eliminating the need to frequently load/unload
  • Can double as sleeping quarters/living space for customers who travel with their cargo (race car owners are usually big fans of enclosed trailers for this reason, among others)
