i have a 24' enclosed haulmark car hauler that i got to haul my bikes and gear and to sleep in. the best advice i can give is what my friends who had trailers all voiced "go big it fills up fast" 5 of the 7 people i know with trailers have gone bigger, the other 2 wish they could. my best friend is on his 4th trailer he goes 2' longer every time he is at 20' now and says he is done. i have installed cabinets and a work bench in all 4 of his trailers and am in the process of building mine. i also plan to install a shower/toilet, small kitchen area (microwave and small fridge)and fold down beds. i tow with a ford super duty diesel but a 350 chevy would haul it fine also (i'll smoke your a$$ on hills though). if you have an auto i would make sure it has a tranny cooler if you regularly haul above 3000 lbs or tow in the mountains. the beauty of an enclosed trailer is when you get home hot tired and sore you unhook and leave it. then clean up as you get a chance, no more clutter in the house or garage, no more loading and unloading the truck. i also find i dont forget stuff because its always in the trailer.
