Trailer Pulling!

I had a thread a while ago but Dont know where it went!


Anyways I am looking for a 7x14 enclosed trailer for my 4x4 4.0 ranger.

I am wanting a V nose with tandem axles but that is kinda expensive and hard to find.

Anyone ever pull a Inclosed trailer with there ranger? How did it pull and what is the size of it? From what I have been reading the weight of a enclosed is not much more but its the wind that kills the truck

30mph winds plus sure, those dont happen that often you will not notice the wind, nothing like my truck does now by itself.

3500 you will be fine.

No I am talking about the enclosed trailer while driving down the road. From what I have read a V nose/ Flat makes a huge diffrence and when you get up to speed its alot diffrent pulling then a flat trailer
