look for a 6x12 or a 5x12, then you can get all of your equipment on the trailer, for you, because you are young(like me) i would go with an open landscape trailer. try to get one with wood flooring or composite decking, i have the mesh flooring, i like it, it's lighter but i can't anchor anything into the floor. an enclosed is good, but i can't justifty the expense, around here security isn't an issue.

i would add on trimmer racks and Gate assist, so as not to strain your back, creating future problems.

Im young too and I got a 20ft enclosed, 12ft open, and 14ft dump. Id deff. say go with the enclosed. Probablly the 6x12. When we got the 6x12, it got too small after the first summer we had it so you might want to consider that and how much your gonna grow. With the enclosed you dont have to unload and load all the time or if it rains or something. And if you need to, it can be locked up and parked. Just my .02. Good luck man.

No license? 3 trailers? 2 trucks that you haven't even drove? 3 mowers? PICS? I don't think so........

I'm also in the same boat as zim. Looking for a bigger trailer but still not sure what size its gonna be. I know i am definitly gonna have another mower. Lookin into a 52" z or a 52" turf tracer hp. for next year
