If you can afford it I would go with enclosed. Mine is opened but that's only because I already had it before starting and figured I would use it. Because of this each day I work I need to load and unload the trailer. Some day I will get an enclosed one that I can just back in the side yard and leave it loaded.

Eventually it is nice to have both. You can't beat an open trailer for cleanups.
I like the enclosed for the traveling bill board, security and it's basically a garage on wheels.
If money is an issue start with the open trailer. :)

It really depends on what you plan to do and the equipment you have, if just lawn mowing then IMHO enclosed but if you are going to get into a host of services then a truck with a cap you can lock and an open trailer, I have both but lawn mowing is a small part of our business, we are more into landscaping and excavation.
