Mine is a Middlebury with a V nose. Construction is OK, not outstanding, but not shoddy either. I liked it because the inside walls are covered in white smooth plastic, not chintzy thin plywood.

I added E Track for flexibility in tie down locations and a Harbor Freight Wheel Chock. Chock was less than $50 and works great - 15,000 miles so far. Love the ramp door- greatly simplifies loading and unloading. Also has a side door which is great for quick access for smaller items.

Ive got a 28 ft Pace...with 5 ft tongue(makes tight backing easy)...
Personally I'd never have anything but a rear ramp door.
Buy a quality trailer, you wont have to worry about twisting or racking of the body structure.
I prefer flat front, more usable room inside
just my opinion, beings you had asked

I decided on a 5' x 8' enclosed V-Nose. I wanted to keep the road grime off and from the inside of it, I wanted to haul riding gear as my wife and I wear more than tee shirts and flip flops when we ride, I wanted to be able to move it around solo, I wanted to be able to tow it with my car as well. I haven't tried backing it up with my Challenger yet but I can back into a single spot at the mall with my car in one try. I personalized it with a couple of supply shelves and gear hangers I designed and fabricated in my shop as well as adding a quick release removable wheel chock for times I want to haul other things.

The V-Nose gives you a little more room and I needed all of the 8 feet and I can still get past the front of the bike to strap it in. Be sure to outfit it with stabilizer jacks so you can load and unload it without it being hooked to a tow vehicle.

V nose are nice but in my case wouldn't work large tool box in front would only waste v nose part. I went with barn doors with ramps if u ever possibly use fork lift etc to load into trailer the ramp doors won't work (can't hold forklift weight). Ramps fold up slide out easily. Also anything over 5x8 for one bike is a waste. Again 6x12 single axle weighted right chocked right can haul 2 full size done it for 10 years to Sturgis. Key is get weighted right over axle pulls like a dream in wind 75 mph behind my pickup. Just got MH. Good luck enjoy.

We bought a 8 year old Wells Cargo 6 x 10 V nose with a ramp door and a side door. Torsion axle makes it ride smoother. Everything fits like a new trailer. Buy a quality trailer and you won't regret it.
