Kinda off topic but I remember you saying you had the perfect size trailer for your equipment?

For open I do.. but my parents are starting to get on my case about taking up too much garage space and they would like to see me out of the garage. If I get an enclosed its going to be large enough for another walkbehind or Z.

Royal trailers are very popular around here. I think that they are a bit expensive, but I couldn't argue against their construction. When I was trailer shopping last year, I ended up buying a cargomate trailer, mainly because the price differential was so much. Haven't had any problems at all with it.

IMHO the trailer you listed above is not a great trailer, nor it is really all that great of price for what the trailer is.

I would prefer at a minimum 16" on center floor/walls, and radial tires.

Also if it were me I would not consider a 7' wide enclosed. Once you start hanging stuff on the walls, it will get very narrow in a hurry.

My father has a 8.5x18 enc. trailer that he uses for construction. It looks just like the landscape enc. trailers. The wider interior is nice because once you get racks fo the handhelds and stuff it will become more crammed and tougher to get to the front to grab something. I know it has a side door too but if you could get a wider one then you'd probably be better off.

8ft wide.

16" on center cross members for the floor and walls. It will make a stronger, better built trailer but does drive up the cost a little bit.

That seems like a good deal to me, I got qouted the same price for and 7*16ft Interstate enclosed but only with the flat top. Yea as soon as you start to put your racks in there it will get pretty narrow but if it will just be a mowing trailer mount the trimmer on the left side of the wall and then have your blower rack on the side door so when you open the door its right there then just build a shelf up front and the 7ft will do just fine. Also don't go to big because it gets pretty tight in neighbor hoods or drives my 18ft is a pain some times.
