Need Advice!...SOON!!!

hey i need some advice!....i am on a very very limited budget and i need a new trailer and i need an enclosed one because i have no where to store my equipment. i have the opportunity to buy a 6x10 enclosed trailer i have a 36in WB and a 44in WB and the usual other stuff blowers trimmers things like that...the guy that i might buy this trailer from said he got his 36in WB and his 48in WB in the trailer he said it was a tight fit but it worked i have had a couple of other guys that said i could fit my stuff in there its a single axle trailer and its $900 what do you think?....do you think i could fit the equipment in the trailer?...and what do you think about the price (I'm pretty sure thats a good price for the trailer) do you think it would be a good purchase?.....I'm not planing on upgrading....i know that next year there is this guy i know that is going to sell is bigger trailer and i might sell this one and then buy that one i think i could maybe make a profit on it!...but I'm not sure...

thanks for the advice.
Matt

Sound pretty good those trailers go brand new for about 2k so if the trailer is in good condtion in sounds like a good buy. As for wheter it will fit or not im not sure but you can buy racks to save you space. . Sorry couldnt help more.

$900 buy it as long as its in good condition. i have been looking on ebay and stuff for them and i can find one for under $1500 unless its a 4x8 and thats way to small. my advise is buy it. if i was closer i would already have it in my drive way.

That sounds like a good price. I load all my equip in the trailer first to make sure it fits before I bought it.
Take some pic's if you get it..
