I am looking at buying another enclosed trailer. I was looking the 8'6" width so I could keep the Exmark trac vac attached and never have to remove it loading and unloading. Plus I would have enough room to keep the 60" and 52" along with a 36" belt drive. Currently I only bring the 36" if I know I'm going to use it (1day a week). I'm concerned with a 24' length and the ability to not only drive around but back it into position if needed. Does anyone else you a 24' or does everyone stick with a 20' or less?

I use my 8.5x24 for double duty- mowing and towing car to the track. Backing in and out- It's not an issue for me. You will get used to it. I started using it in 2009 temporarily and haven't stopped since.

I have an 8.5x20. I wanted the 24ft but I can't fit it between two driveways at a lot of the houses I service. Even with the 20ft I still have trouble.

24ft is perfect. You can fit 2 60's with vacs/baggers and a 36 walk behind tucked under the shelves in the front. That was my set up.
