What is the over all trailer width of a 6x12 single axle trailer? From outside of tire to outside of tire. What about length?

I would guess your width would be (6' inside) 2x (1' wheels/fenders)= 8' total width give or take 6"..

Length (12' inside) (4" gate) (3' tongue) = 15'4" give or take 6-12" depending on tongue length..

Now those are assuming its really a 6x12 trailer. Most 6x12's are really 5.9" x 11.9" or somewhere in that neighborhood. Rarely will you find a real 6x12 inside dimension trailer..

Does a 6x12 trailer then fit though and 8' wide door?

I've got a 6x12, that is actually really 6' 4" wide inside of the bed. It has large 15" truck wheels and tires on it, and it is 8' overall width I beleive. Just measure a trailer before buying and you'll be Ok. In short- I beleive most 6x12's will fit a 8' doorway but not guaranteed.

Like Eric said, it will depend 100% on the make and model of the trailer..
