Trailer Width

Looking at landscape trailers this week. What width do y'all recommend? Looking at 77" and 83" widths. I am most likely going to end up with a used 83"x14'. My main beef with the 83" is that it could be fun pulling it on tight 4 lane roads. Don't want to sideswipe anyone. The width of the deck is 83"...the tires are out beyond that. Its prob close to 100" wide total.
I guess I'd have to just just avoid really tight stretches of road where I might have issues. I'm sure like anything I could get used to driving a wider trailer, right now I have a 60" (plus the width of the tires) trailer.
Any input would be appreciated.
