Does anyone know where i can get a nice 17x7 or 18x7 enclosed tandem axle trailer in Ohio with a ramp door.

You might want to think about an 8x20.

I have an 8x20 and in order to get all 3 riders in there I have to tilt up the deck on the Walker.

Also in my experience the 7' wide trailers are not wide enough to get a 72" deck past the wheel wells. If you never see yourself getting a 72" the don't sweat it. That extra foot of width does come in handy though.

Be sure to measure the interior floor space on the trailer before you buy it and then lay out your current equipment in a driveway or similar and measure the footprint of your equipment.

The nice thing about the 8' wide trailer is I can put my 2 Toro 21" push mowers against the wall and still drive my 62" Toro Z-Master all the way to the front of the trailer.

Also you might want to seriously consider putting a spray in bedliner material down on the floor, ramp door and at least 1' up on all the walls.

I read the fine print on the warranty for my trailer and gas, oil and chemicals void the plywood warranty.

I put Line-X on my floor, ramp and walls and I can honestly say it's probably the best $$ I've spent in this business.

When the trailer gets dirty I just pull out all the equipment and use my pressure washer and sometimes a small amount of a mild detergent and it looks brand new again. The floor is impervious to just about anything. Believe me you will spill stuff in there.

Hope this helps.

Does the Line x on the floor help with traction????? Thanks

I would like to see a picture of a trailer with Line-X on the floor if anyone has one.

What's the trap door for? And can you share what you paid for the Line-X?
