6x10 covered trailer a good choice
I have a 6x10 covered trailer, and when I got the bikes I added flush tie down hooks into the floor that have metal backing plates for extra strength. I bolted them down, and put automotive glue between the plates and the plywood floor so these puppies are not going anywhere.
I put 4 hooks in the floor, 2 front and 2 back so I can tie 1 bike. I guess with an extra set in the middle I could fit two bikes, but so far have only hauled one at a time.
I did not get the door on the right front side that is an option on some trailers, and if I ever replace this one I will get the extra door. It makes it much easier to get to something in the front when the trailer is loaded.
Mine did not come with a roof vent either, but I bought one and installed it. If you are not up to cutting and framing a big hole in the roof, buy it already installed. In the Sacramento area, you will need the vent in the summer.
You could probably tow it reasonably well with a 3800-5000 lb capacity tow vehicle.
It is worth it to have your bikes covered and locked, to keep out the weather, and prying nosy eyes away from your bike(s).
