Hi I was wondering if i could get some feed back regarding enclosed trailer sizing. I am looking at a 7x14 enclosed trailer and wondering if a 60" ztn ,48"wb and 21" push along with other tools and such will fit in a 7x14.This would be my 1st enclosed trailer. Thank you,john

As I don't have this scenerio I am not qualified to answer, but I think that you should give yourself the extra 2' if you can and get a 7x16 just in case. It will undoubtedly come in handy some time.

It should fit fine but you may want to line up your equipment as you would park it in the trailer and measure.

I have a 7x16 and have 2 60 Z and a 21 in push mower. My guess is that you would be ok. I do recomend the 7x16, as you would have room to grow.

Don’t buy anything less then a 16 foot trailer or your going to be upset the following year when you have to replace your small trailer

will an f-150 pull a 16' trailer loaded?

Yes. I have a friend who owns a business who has a ford f-150 (6 cyl, standard cab) and pulls a trailer loaded to the gills. It does fine for his business.

The height of a trailer makes more difference than the length on how hard it pulls. I had an enclosed trailer that was 7 and 1/2 ft on the inside and it pulled like a lead sled. It had poor aerodynamics. Total weight difference between a 14 and 16 are not that much on most trailers. (unless the 14 is built cheap then you donít want it any way). If it has 2 3.5K axles then 7k is the approximate gross weight.

The F150 will pull it fine (V8 auto trans, with trailer brakes), I would get a trans cooler if not equipted, if you are pulling it every day I would get a 3/4 ton truck or bigger because over time you will kill your 1/2 ton, its made to pull a boat once a week. A 3/4 ton or bigger is designed to tow everyday.
