Flat Bed to Enclosed Trailer

Postby SQUAWKnemi » Mon Jan 02, 2012 2:54 pm

So my crew has a 5x8 flat bed trailer that we put 2 foot sides on to transport our goose decoys. We are looking to get an enclosed trailer so we can store some of the deeks in it over the summer. I came across an enclosed trailer on craiglist that a guy made from a flatbed trailer. Does anyone have any experience doing this or something similar or do u think its a better idea to forget it and just buy an enclosed trailer?

A buddy of mine has one set up like that and its been an awesome trailer, best part about it is that you can set it up exactly how you want it.

if you're going to be in it for the long haul and keep the trailer a long time get a real enclosed trailer. yes you can build it to one and have it work OK but it'll be a good bit heavier and possibilities for leaks when in rain. and it'll be hard to make it as aerodynamic as a bought one... and you'd be surprised how much that will effect gas millage and how easy the trailer pulls.
