One thing to think about is being able to access equipment on (weed eaters and bp blowers) when you have mowers in the trailer. I used to like to have the weed eaters and blowers at the back so that when we had out mowers in the trailer we didnt have to climb over the side of decks and so forth in order to reach equipment. Ours was 7 ft wide so it was a little bit tighter than an 8 or 8.5 ft one. We also had our weed eater string on a spool at the back as well.

Our one trailer is a 24ft with a 3ft V nose. In the "V" part we put 2 shelves, the bottom shelf holds a tool box, a side for things like loppers, manual shears and some other junk. The other side has a spot for a hand held blower and oil pre mix. Above that we have 3 of those plastic totes and that's where the guys can put personal things and change of clothes etc. Down the middle we usually put a 36" walk behind and usually 2 other riders, on the curb side we put a 21" under the shelving, the other side under the shelving is open (usually a catch all). On the curb side we have a large fire extinguisher right by the man door, hand held rack for rakes, shovels etc. then a spot for 2 hedge trimmers then 3 back pack blowers. On the left side we have 3 racks things for our Sthil combi and attachments, then 2 (3 spot) trimmer racks. In the very rear we have our spools of trimmer line, fuel and cones. It probably would have been shorter to just go snap a pic and post it,lol. There's enough equipment in there to completely outfit 2 full crews. Hopefully your traile has larger tube framing so you can anchor things to it. We just ran a 2x3's length wise in the whole trailer about 4ft apart along both sides then 2x3's going up and down where we needed to. anchored everything with a wood/metal lag head bolt. Be careful not to drill right through the trailer.
