inside. Only 1200 miles! Located near Denver, Co. Asking $3200. Don't use
it enough to justify keeping it. (303) 443-8787 or e-mail if interested
        Thanks,
                Loren

        Are enclosed trailers harder to pull than open ones? Does the gas
mileage go down much on the highway? I currently pull a 3 place with a
full size GMC with 350cid and don't want to bog it down much more than it
already is (I'm pretty disapointed with the trucks performance on incline
at 10,000ft. as it is ) I don't want to get a new trailer and have it
start a huge chain of needing a new truck, new camper, new snowplow and
who knows what all else. (the trailers are expensive enough)
        Thanks,
                Loren

A enclosed trailer will have more wind resistance and a bit more weight
due to the enclosure.  This will technically make the trailer "harder"
to pull.  I went to a enclosed 2 place over a non-enclosed and dropped
about 2 mpg with my F150 (302) here in the flatlands.  I made the trip
in the same time but with the mileage penalty.  The upside was not have
my sleds covered with salt slush and having a nice dry place to store
them during the "off" months.

Loren,

Having pulled a Wells Cargo two place enclosed trailer with my Suburban,
they are
like pulling a sheet of plywood sideways.  The drag induced by the
enclosure is
more than I want to try.  I have been working on a aerodynamic cover for my
two place
for some time now but can seem to get the airflow right over the old
Suburban.

My advice would be to add a 20 gallon fuel tank, hire your buddies to chain
on to you
if you exceed 9000 feet, let me know what gas company you use (credit card,
etc.) so I can
invest in them.  It might help me pay for my new house in Hawaii!

Phil
