Hey guys,
i will be purchasing a 6.5'x12' trailer with 2' sides lined with extended metal, a landscape box on the front and trimmer racks on the side as well as a ramp on the back.(it will be an open trailer) i called about a month ago to get quoted and then i called today and it was $300 cheaper!! i am just curious whether now would be the time to buy or if i should wait a couple weekes/a month or so? i am just borrowing a 5x8 right now and it only fits one of my walk behinds so it is way too small.

I need advice asap.
thanks in advance.

I agree with these guys, always better to go a little bigger than you think you need.

I would suggest getting an enclosed trailer if you can afford it. See what kind of deal you can strike with the guy

go with a 7x16 they about $1300-$1500 only. I'd say buy now you can probably work a deal with things being slow.

don't know where you live but I'm in La. and just ordered the same exact trailer for 1550.00, so that will give you some idea on how good a deal your getting.

I would go with a enclosed trailer. With all the theft nowwadays put everything in a unmarked enclosed trailer.

no i have a 5x8 right now but my dilema is i cant go any bigger than a 12' because of storage room.
