V Nose Tandem Axle 6×12 Enclosed Trailer Specification
This trailer comes standard with American-made axles and radial tires- no more bias-ply to worry about! The axles are rated at 2990 lbs for Federal DOT regulations because they don’t have brakes- it’s the same 3500 lb axle as in our other trailers and you may see competitors claiming they are selling a 3500# axle, but legally it’s not rated for 3500, UNLESS you upgrade to brakes (or to tandem axles, which would make brakes standard.
It also comes standard with a fold-down ramp door with spring assist (one hand open and close) and can be had with barn doors at no extra charge. The side door has an RV lock as standard equipment, so you can open it from the inside and lock it with a key- if you’d prefer a bar lock, that’s also available at no extra charge, or you can upgrade to bar lock OVER the RV latch and have the convenience of a latch and the security of a bar lock.
Inside, there’s one roof vent that lets in light and can be cranked open for air, but it will let water in if you forget to close it, so we suggest adding a vent cover. You can also delete the roof vent and go with a pair of side vents, these work great to move air through while the trailer is moving. The interior is 6’3” at its highest point down the middle (the roof is slightly bowed for water run off) and is a little lower at the sides and at the roof bows, around 6’2”. Figure the opening height at about 5’8” to be safe. Of course, many people add 6” or more of extra height.
The floor and walls are made of plywood, 3’4” in the floors and 3/8” on the walls. The plywood is painted with a water-resistant paint at the factory. Behind the walls are 1” tube steel beams, which are suitable for anchoring lightweight racks or shelving.
