That I don't own it any more. Mine was a standard steel/wooden deck trailer. Loading and unloading was always precarious, or felt that way. That contributed significantly to me hating towing and going back to street driveable cars.

One of the main reasons for me not going to an enclosed (besides the weight) is that I've known multiple guys who've had theirs stolen.....with all their stuff in it.

The vast majority of the trailer thefts that I've read about are of trailers parked outside race shops in deserted industrial areas at night and most of the rest are hotel parking lots.  Stealing a trailer out of someone's side yard is a lot more brazen, plus yes, stuff parked in front of it.

Add one of these:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L8L4XZ5 and these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003E1GLSM and it's not getting stolen without a few minutes with an angle grinder.  That's pretty loud for the side yard of a house.

I did say paranoia; a coworker had his nicked off the side of the house but they had clear access to it.

I'm in the same boat... I usually borrow a friend's trailer, but nobody's available this coming weekend. It looks like I might end up having to rent a uhaul to get my Miata to the track, because I don't trust it driving down there, and nothing on Facebook marketplace or craiglist looks appealing.

My favorite thing about it is it's broke right now so I'm not tempted to go buy more cars.

That i sold it to Stampie before it broke?

 

my current favorite thing about my new trailer is that at 28' it fits the datsun and the mustang together 

 

edit:  the best thing is it's size.  But the best thing about the size is that it's too big a pain in the ass to bother hooking up to chase more cars for sale, so it keeps me from being the guy that shows up first with a trailer and cash
