go with a bigger trailer unless u dont want to get more equipt. i mean think about it ppl are sellin b.c they grew out of them in a year...spend the money buy something biger like a 12 footer i have a 10 footer and want a bigger one and thats what i started out with had it about 2years now and my 1st year didnt use it much...but im not going to be able to afford one for a little bit now family matters but thats a different story...but i would deff say try to pick up a used 12 footer for around 800bucks and ull be happy with that...i have an s10 and it will pull a 12footer with a 60'' ztr and a 48'' wb so as long as u drive right ull be fine..

so go bigger man

but thats just my 2cents

Yea, i would buy bigger if i had a bigger place to store the trailer. Also i am not using a truck to pull trailer. So i can only pull so much.

The pictures would not download. If you would email
me at cheeshead@charter.net I would appreciate it.
Ill send you the pictures from there. I just bought a 6'12"
and i went to put it in the mini warehouse I am currently
storing my 5"8" and it wouldnt fit. So now my new
one is sitting out in the weather at home while the
one I am selling is in the storage. Doesn't make sense.
Atleast the person who buys my old one knows its been
stored indoors. The ramps in the back are two separate
ones that lock in place with pins. There is no rust that I
can see on the trailer. The trailer has not been cleaned
yet from the 2005 season. I will make sure to bring it to
the carwash and give it a good scrub down, if you end
up buying it. If you have any other questions I would
be happy to answer them for you.

ouch

Yeah i have been mowing for awhile and last year i partnered up so i bought a new 05 mazda3. It is a 4 banger but really nice, i just put a hitch on it yesterday and i can pull up too 2,000 lbs but im trying to stay aroung 750lbs. I know a truck or almost anything is better but i cant sell it now without major losses. I am also transfering to another college so i have to use a storage unit to hold all my equipment b\c i am living in townhomes that have no shelter unless i buy a enclosed trailer, but they are more heavy so im kinda stuck. I know i will its very easy if you do good work to grow, but for right now i think think 5x8 is big enough. It will make storing easier and i still only need 36 wb and 21 wb plus accessories on trailer.

I am thinking about the 5x10. Storage is what will hurt.
