How big are you looking to grow? What are your future plans? Buy as big of one as you can afford, with an f-150 you shouldn't have any problems pulling a trailer around, we use f-150's everyday. It sound's like you don't need anything more then a 5X10 for your mowers, but if you ever want to get mulch or haul away something big I would go bigger, maybe a 16 foot dual axle if you have somewhere to keep it.

Pick the largest trailer you think you might use one day and get the next size up! You can't go wrong.

Also, Have you thought you needed a bigger truck yet, or added helper springs to the rear?

Or, did you start with a handheld blower and finally go Backpack?
What works for me and my crew, may or may not work for you!
