    I have a open trailer now, but have thought about it numerous times that having an enclosed trailer might be more handy. From the many a times I've been in an enclosed trailer (including u-hauls), its nothing more than a frame with sheet metal/fiberglass board on the sides.

    Given that I already have stake pockets on the side for 2x4's, would it be out of the question to build one on top of my trailer that could be assembled and disassembled in pieces? Im thinking of building it a little bit more aerodynamic than a brick is by using the A frame area as well.

    You may consider making a side kit and using a tarp top if you have stake pockets. You can use conduit pipe to make the top bows out of.
