some light reading for you

http://www.wind-tunnel-designs.com/deflectors.htm

I know that a friend of mine had a enclosed ~7x14 that we used to tow years ago all over the place, it was like pulling a parachute when there was a head wind or a 45 degree head wind ... he added one of the fiberglass/plastic??? bubbles (similar to the silver one shown here) and it broke the wind perfectly behind a pickup truck to the point you could barely tell it was back there and our mileage went way back up (several mpg).... I know if you buy a square nosed trailer, I would highly recommend buying (or making) something similar to help with towing.

here's another option Triton trailers that might get infomation to you via the net.

Those triton trailers look pretty nice too!
CT-147s looks about what I'm looking for .....
I emailed the distributor in houston for pricing.

Hey we just bought a Forest river 18' Work and Play model and it doubles as a camper when we are out for the week or weekend, Air, Shower, Stove, Awning, You get the idea.

Its tight but we get three ATV's in it.

Happy Hunting

I bought a 6x12 from Northern tool. Flat front. I rigged it for camping too, with batteries, lights, etc. It can not hold 4 full size bikes side-by-side. It holds 3 comfortably. The front of mine has about 3 feet reserved for tupperware, tool chest, generator, etc. You could use that space for the bikes and have room for a 4th bike facing backwards. It pulls very well behind a 5.3L suburban. I would not go any smaller. I added electric brakes, a must-have item. If I had to do it all over again I would get the dual axle 7x12 or 14, but you could make it work.
