When purchasing an enclosed semi-trailer, there are a few features that you should choose carefully, as these features will impact your ability to use the trailer for whatever you see fit.
Nose of the Trailer
First, in regard to the style of the trailer, you need to determine what type of noise you want the trailer to have. Do you want a flat front? A flat-front trailer is nice, tall, and straight and gives you a lot of clearance inside of the trailer.
Or you can do with a V-nose trailer, where the front of the trailer provides you with a little more space but not as much height. V-nose trailers are a little more aerodynamic as well, so if you are trying to increase fuel efficiency, you can do that with a V-noise trailer.
Second, you need to consider how any axles you want the trailer to have. The axles on the trailer will impact how the trailer sits when it is in motion. When considering the number of axles, you want the vehicle to have, consider what type of loads you plan to haul with the trailer.
The weight of the load will impact the number and type of axles that you put on the vehicle as well. You are going to want to have some extra capacity with the axels that you choose for your trailer.
Type of Doors
Third, you need to consider what type of doors you want on your vehicle. You can have barn door styles that just swing open. Or you can have a ramp. A ramp is functional and can make it a lot easier to load things on and off your trailer.
You can easily roll a dolly or a forklift up the ramp on your trailer. If you ever have to transport vehicles, it will be much easier to do so with a ramp trailer.
Finally, you need to consider what you will be transporting in your trailer and if you will need ventilation for the loads that you will be hauling. Having a trailer where you have manual roof vents that you can open and close on your own or a trailer with passive side ventilation, are both options if you want to keep the air moving inside of your trailer.
When it comes to purchasing an enclosed trailer, you need to consider the shape of the trailer and the number of axles you want your trailer to have. You are going to need to consider the type of door and ventilation you need in order to transport goods in the best possible way.
