A five foot wide trailer is 60" wide. A 54" or 52" would be the max you could fit on (without any walking room) (a 54" would give you around 2" max on each side) It sounds like you would need a bigger trailer.

Get prices from your dealer. Prices vary.

I think you can still get Deere's MSRP off their website. PJ lists the Hustler MSRP on the Hustler forum here on Lawnsite. I don't know if Gravely still lists their MSRP on their site, but check it out. Most manufacturers' list prices are easily found on the internet, and you just have to negotiate with a dealer from there (very similar to buying a new or used vehicle from a car dealer). :hammerhead:
