may have outgrown 16 ft. trailer, need suggestions

I recently purchased a 61'' ztr, 36'' walk, and 52'' walk. My trailer is 6.5x16 and I have barely inches between each unit. Any suggestion on how to load safely and efficiently? I should also mention I have a second side gate as well. What do you think?

If you have all the mowers on the trailer and they fit, what is the problem?

I've had a 36wb and 2 61ztrs on a 16ft trailer before and they fit fine

I don't see a problem. That's the perfect size for the load. Furthermore, that's a really nice operation you have, there. WOW!

Who manufactured your trailer? It is almost identical to what I am looking for.

It was manufactured by Retco out of sikeston, MO. I had it custom built. 2 ft sides, 5 ft rear gate, a ft cross members underneath,side gate etc. Thanks though, I guess I'll just have to get used to getting everything on an off the trailer the way it is. I just feel like an acrobat jumping around to pull everything on an off
