I have just ordered this trailer from ATC. I have been running with a trailer that I built over 15 years ago that is 6.5 by 13 and it did all I needed for all of those years. I want everything out of the weather and out of sight too and I went bigger this time. 8.5X18 with a 4 foot nose with a ramp curb side out the nose. I am going to install an A/C as well so I can make repairs in comfort. May use it to tailgate or go camping from time to time as well.
