    I’ve been looking into getting an enclosed trailer and curious to know what others have seen for problems. The local dealer sells cargo mate and started getting in a few Mirage trailers (I haven’t seen one yet). I had a Royal Cargo before, it was a good trailer but door was too short when I got the new buggy. I know everyone has the horror stories about a POS they may have bought. I’d like to hear about problems or manufacturing defects that you have experienced with your trailers that would have caused accidents or emergency roadside repairs. Further more I’d like to know how your local dealer (if you bought new) or the manufacturer took care of the problem for you. I’ve always liked the Wells Cargo brand for some reason but never pulled one.

    There is definitely a big difference in quality and durability between the different makes. Mine is a United trailer. They are a bit more but its held up well.

    Featherlite with ramp on front and rear would be my choice if ever up grade. I have a featherlite open utility trailer that is over 15 years old with no issues. I did order led light kit from featherlite a couple of years ago to replace old runnng lights.

    This past spring bought a new enclosed trailer, it is a "Haulin" with a donkey symbol behind it. The story I got was it original was called Haulin Ass but received complaints so the name was changed to use the Donkey pic instead... So far so good, did have issues with rim leaks in the wheels but the dealer swapped them out and so far so good. I bought the pkg upgrade with screwless exterior, ramp door, extra height for the SxS and it also comes with thicker walls, heavier frame, and closer spaced wall and floor studs. Trailer weighs more than a standard trailer with the upgrades but I am hoping they will be worth it in the long run. Tows well and tracks fine, especially behind the motorhome, don't even know it is there..

    Most trailer builders can build to your spec...a little wider, taller roof, etc. We have two big builders here in MI, R&R and Legend (I'm sure there are more). I have had an R&R snowmobile trailer and it held up well. Legend trailers are a bit higher end, but are very nice from what I have seen. I know many are building them with kick out/ flip down beds in the sides now too....sort of a "rough'n it" toy hauler of sorts. You can really spec them out as bare bones or as fancy as you like.

    Im having a new sure-trac pro series trailer built at the moment. 8.5x24'. Previously had a sure-trac 18 footer that was great, i had just bought it before i had plans on buying a sxs.

    Im owned many different trailers though.
    Sure-trac has some good stuff though.
    Should be a good trailer for me once its complete, got about a month and a half left on the wait.

    This is a 2019 8.5x18' Sure-Trac proseries. With what they call the "wedge front". I call it a v nose..
    It had 7 inches of additional height also.

    It was bare bones, no options added at all.
    Good trailer, just too small for me after getting into the sxs world.

    We picked up a new 2018 28ft. Haulmark Edge for a awesome price. Little more trailer then we probably need. We have had Wells Cargo, Interstate and Stealth in the past. All were good trailers we just needed to get bigger each time we upgraded. They're some groups on Facebook buying and selling enclosed trailers. Go with a name brand that's been around. A lot of junk out there. Cheapest isn't always the best.

    In my many years of living, I have found that buying right the first time hasnt always worked. I always thought I was planning on getting the right item the first time, only to find life changes and what I thought was a one and only purchase turned out to be a many time purchase due to those life changes. I cant remember how many times I have gone thru this.
