What is a good trailer for pulling a SUV

Boss is looking for a trailer to tow a Range Rover. Those are decently heavy vehicles for the size, so I was hoping I could get a little insight to pass along. It would be towed by an F-250. It could be either open or enclosed, but it's a little out of my league of suggestion. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

-2" Readylift
-Avery clear bra/painted grille surround, KR bumpers
-Recon LED cab light kit, dually under tailgate light.
-Black bedlined toolbox. Black bedliner, dual cable locks, and factory bed extender
-Yellow tops, lockpick.
-Legal window tint

Enclosed would be nice but not necessary. I think 20k would be a bit out of range

Really any trailer that has big enough axles under it. I tow my jeep around on a trailer that is 15 years old. I re did the wiring and put new shoes on her and she pulls great. FYI what ever trailer you get BALANCE THE TIRES on it.

Well,you can find some cheaper enclosed used for around $5000, they're not a Featherlite, but it'll work. For that Range Rover,I'd make sure it had at least 5200# axles under it, 6000 # would be better and give you the 16 inch wheels, 7000# would be ideal. Enclosed trailer will be roughly 4000 # + 6000# SUV. IF you go open, again, I'd have at least 5200# axles. If you get one with 3500# axles, you'll be overweight.
