It's a 6x10. It's a tight fit getting the 52" ztr and the 36" wb on it, but it works.

I started with a 6x10, then stretched it to 6x12 and added a box up front. We out grew it the first season it was stretched. Now that we have the 16' trailer we have plenty of room! We can also haul 10 yards of mulch with NO problem. Your 7.3 Ford won't really notice the difference b/w the current trailer and a bigger 16 either.

Yeah, we would really like to get a 7x16 with 2ft mesh sides and a side ramp for the TT because right now we have to put other things in the truck bed, like our 21" push mower, gas cans, grass catcher, etc. Did you like the basket as opposed to a toolbox? Was it big enough to store blowers in?

The basket on the old 6x12 was great! I made it from all mesh and 3/4" square tubing. It held 2 cans, MS290 chain saw, hand held blower and milk crate with various stuff. Much faster access than a tool box that you have to open up all the time. We are all about doing the job as effiecent a possible. from 8-5pm at a steady pace 20-25 lawns is normal. Thats 15 min average per lawn plus drive time and lunch.
