22' trailer?

are there any companies that build a 22' open landscaping trailer? I can't find one anywhere I look. All I find is 20' and once in a while 24'. I'd like to get 22', as a 20' would be slightly too short, and the 24' would be kind of over kill. Thanks.

I know big tex makes a 22' open trailer but it is a gooseneck. I wouldn't really worry about 24' trailer, its only 2 extra feet. I try to add a little extra space than what I think I will need, space always seems to fill up fast.

Trailer

I bought a 24' trailer built by All Pro. It has 2' sides and 5200 lb axles. If you get one get 5200 lb or larger axles. It is very easy to over load a trailer that big. Not to mention load range E or F tires hold up a lot better.
