go for the 20FT trailer because you will grow and will need it soon and you will wish you had.

Yep, go bigger! I bought an 18 thinking that would be enough, NOT. You can always fill space up, but if you don't have it, you might be stuck.

I'm interested in your trailer how much? Can you post some pictures?

20' and go for the #5200 lb axles w/ brakes on both

20' for sure. I got a brand new 18' custom this past summer, and I've already outgrown it. Depending on the Z's you'll run, you will have a really tight fit making two of them and a walk behind fit. I had a 737 60" and 777 72" Deere Z's on mine and my 36 w/b,and it was a really tight fit. Get the biggest trailer you can, within reason. AS was said you'll always be able to take up space, but if you go to small.....

I bought a 20' last year and sometimes wish i went with the 24'.:waving:

We have a 20' enclosed trailer. It will hold two WB's and one Z fairly comfortably. If we place the bagger on the Z the WB in the front has to go under the shelves. I think a 2' loss (ie 18 footer) would make it extremely tight especially for two Z's and one WB.

If you can manage I would even go to a 24 foot. Although a 24 foot wouldn't work for us cause of some parking lots we have to manuever through.

What are you going to be pulling it with?

I would say get the 20' as well.
