    Need some advice please: I want an enclosed V-nose trailer that will fit two utility quads (approx. 80"x48"), placed end-to-end.

    Does anyone have such a trailer? I would like to know how long it is. I know two trailers would line up to be 160", but nearly 14' for a trailer seems too large?

    Normally I would be hauling one bike, but I would like the space for two.

    Thanks orvis for the reply. What concerns me is the trailer acting as a giant wind sail at 12' or 14' long. I know the weight won't be an issue.

    I test drove an enclosed 6x12 tandem axle trailer. Had it up at highway speeds with a decent oncoming/side wind.

    I found that I had to keep the transmission in 4 to prevent occasional hunting - I have no issues with that.

    I'm thinking of buying the 7x14 with a wedge nose and extra 6" interior height. Dry weight is 2000lb - more specifications here (page two, left-most column):

    http://www.looktrailers.com/MODEL/PDF/MODEL-000083.pdf

    They have a 6x14 unit too, but the extra width would be nice for working on an ATV inside, if required. The 7x14 could be a bit more of a drain on the wallet too (for gas), but you have to pay to play.

    Anyone see any issues with that model?

    I have a brake controller and am waiting on warmer weather to install my Firestone Ride-Rites and on-board air.
