Trailer

Just wanted any ideas on trailers.
I know I want at least a 7X14 - 16 Enclosed Tandem.
Question is what do I look for as far as materials and such.
Is one brand better than another.
Do I need trailer brakes on both axles.
What size flooring and side walls are really needed.
I dont want to spend too much and get too little.
At the same time I dont want to but a car hauler when all I need is a landscape and mowing trailer.
Any Ideas?
Thanks.

I use an open trailer but you should make sure you get studs on 16' centers. Father-in-law bought a Haulmark for his power washing biz. It's well built but it costed a little more than most. I think one axle brakes would be fine. Get some more opinions from others who use them though.

I also used a 6.5 x 12 open single axle.
However I seemed to out grow the trailer. Junk piles up fast.
I sold the trailer with a 52" Bunton. Now looking for the enclosed, Just to keep my gear out of the garage (and rain)
Thanks for the response.
