I have a 52" Snapper WB. Thinking about getting a 5x8 trailer. Will a 5x8 be big enough? Im pulling it with a 2000 ford ranger 4x4 with a 3.0. Thank you for your advice!

If that is all you plan to put on it for your mowing career, go for it. But, you will always be able to put more on a trailer, might want to find something bigger.

I would go with the 5X8. With the small 3.0 and the added weight of a transfer case, going with a 14-16ft. trailer isn't necessary, is added weight, and cuts your mileage down unnecessarily. Don't strain your truck if it's not necessary.

Get the 5x8 and if you wnat a bigger trailer later get it and use the 5x8 for back up or when you don't want ot pull the big trailer around with just one thing one it. That's what I did. I talk about sellign the 5x8 every year but It keeps coming in handy. It's great to use when just aerating or garden tilling or to take one mower to my parents house 2 hours away.
I'd say a 6x12 is a bit big to be pulling with a ranger anyway.
