trailers

I am considering changing trailers and I presently have a homemade extra heavy duty that weighs as much as my F 150 truck. It has already ruined my transmission and My plans are to get a new smaller truck and trailer. I want to upgrade to an enclosed trailer . I have a 32" toro walk behind, 2 - 21" toro walk behinds, 2 weedeaters, blower and all the extras. My question is ? The truck is a v-6 Nissan and the trailer is an enclosed 6 x 10. Will I be happy with decision?

The enclosed trailer is an excellent idea. Will the truck hack it?

I have a 5x8 enclosed jammed full and my old dodge 318 pulled like a slug and got terrible mileage. So after the trailer I got a Dodge Cummins diesel and all is well...

Is a 5x8 enclosed trailer large enough to carry a 32" mower w/ a sulky, 22" push mower, 2 weed eaters, blower and all the extras as well?

I don't have pics right now (not at home). In my 5x8 trailer I have a 32" SCAG w/velke (sulky is too big and slows you down), a 21" push, 2 blowers, 2 trimmers, chainsaw, + all the extras (rakes, shovels, bag holder, hand tools, sprayers, etc) including a 6' ladder. All easily accessible. Plus an ALARM.

I wouldn't mind a 6x10, but I do have everything I need for my solo act in the 5x8. I will be happy to send pics in the next couple of days.
