I tow a 24 foot v-nose car trailer that was ordered as a vending trailer. The v-nose does not help visibility because the trailer is still over 8 feet wide. It does help in maneuvering as you won't jack knife as easy.

Or at least you will see it coming...yes I have one too.

Thanks for all the feedback on the V-nose. It gives me more to think about in our search.

We have a v nose 27foot Boogie Box (R-Vision) toyhauler.

Some comments:
I didn't notice any real drag reduction. You still have the flat tailgate trying to suck air along with it.

We haven't noticed any difference in sway compared to our old flat front toyhauler.

The v-nose makes the box length 30' overall. the added room gives a lot of useable storage.

vision behind the truck is the same as any trailer. V-nose isn't any benifit.

We're happy with it, but would look at a flat front as well as another v-nose if we decided to change.
