New enclosed trailer

I'm almost ready to order a new haulmark 8.5x 18' trailer tomorrow. The trailer has a 6.5' height, torqflex axles, led lighting. They want 6,500 plus tax, sound like a ok deal? Any reason I shouldn't buy a haulmark? I'm new to the enlosed trailer market.

Anyone know what the measurments are of a 8.5' wide haulmark trailer between the inside fender wells? I need to get my 72" mower in it, want to make sure it will pass between the fender wells. Brochure and dealer says they measure 96" from wall to wall but I need to know the measurment between the fender wells.

I can tell you Saturday. I'm out of town now and when I get home Saturday, Ill run out and measure one of the trailers. Our most resent enclosed trailer was a Haulmark 8.5x20 in 2011. It's a great trailer. I upgraded to the 5200lb axles and bogey wheels. I think it was right around 6k otd. Had to drive to georgia to pick it up though. It has the white walls on the inside too. Purchased it through Internet Trailers

I'm getting the 5200lb axles too. How much extra did the white interior walls set you back?

No, it just has the white walls and white ceiling. It looks nice in my opinion. I added a bunch of racks and shelves to it and put a workbench in upfront with a tool box once we got it home. Think it came with some extra chrome. Has nicer wheels and what not. The walls aren't actually plywood. They are some thin ****. Didn't know that when we picked it up.
