I have a chance to buy an enclosed trailer at what i think is a good price but not sure and need some opions.Its a 2003 24' Aztex triple axle.Rear door is 96" high and trailer height is about 10' with a 50 Gallon electric fueling station with a 10 foot fueling nozzle and 50 gallons of water.It has 7000 lb axles with electric brakes on two axles.The price is 5k.I have done a search and price seems to be good and mixed results regarding manufacturer.

So your looking at a trailer rated to 21,000 pounds. Is this just an open interior with fuel tank and water tank only. The price of 5K seems ok for this trailer but here are my reservations. This is going to be a heavy trailer and do you need to carry that heavey of a load and do you need a 20 foot long trailer. I'm thinking you could buy a 16-18 foot pace type enclosed trailer with a double axel or a single 6000-7000 pound axel cheaper. Not as much trailer but if you don't need that much trailer, the extra will just be a burdon and take extra fuel. Look on Ebay and you should get a good idea of what they are going for especially if you look in the completed listings. Another place to look is in the truck trader or other title by same group. One of their magizines covers trailers for sale. They are avavilable at most convience stores. As far as water and gas goes, the farm suply stores sell tanks real cheap. Ebay has 42 gal new fresh water tanks for $100 including shipping. Just some thoughts. 5k is a good buy on that trailer.

I came across this by accident.I have the flat open trailer but always thought about an enclosed one.The ones i have seen all had low doors and because of the height of my trooper with the cargo rack on top it would not fit.Its an open interior with a removable/adjustable ramp that the trooper can be driven up on thus giving more room under it for storage or a couple quads should i ever get anymore toys.According to what i was told the trailer itself weighs in at 3,500lbs.

From experience as I just sold my triple axle trailer. Triple axle stops, pulls & tracks great even in the wind. On the bad side, the rear axle scrubs the tires every time you make a turn. Over time it tears the tire apart. Trailer tires do not hold up to this or heat & speed. I went thu 11 tires before I finally bit the bullet and upgraded the rims to 16" so I could run LT Pickup/Truck tires as I was very heavy also. Then the problem seemed to have gone away. Sold the trailer after that. Only downside I know of, just watch the tires. If you go on rv.net in the Toyhauler forum you will see all the post of others & ME.
