Yea, its so i can make tight turns with the trailer, and incase someone wants to rear end me, they'll get the damage not me.

LOL, two of the 1 gallons are mix, the 2 gallon is to fill the mowers, and the 5 gallon is to fill the two gallon and the 1 gallons. THe other 5 gallon was in there just to fill it up at the gas station. It stays in the shed. I use the 1 and 2 gallon tanks cuz i fill up the small 21'' mowers with them along with the handheld stuff. Its kinda hard to fill up small tanks with a 5 gallon container. THat and i like to keep fuel fresh.

You must be close to the 10,000 lbs limit right?

I heard its tough to get a machine on the trailer and walk around without banging your shins up. What's your experience with that?
Its 14 feet. Maybe I should have got a 16 footer, but I like the size because it can fit it in a standard garage to use it as a construction debris dumpster too. I guess you could call it tight, but you can put a bigger backhoe in there if you hang the bucket/arm outside of the trailer. By 10,000 lbs do you mean the towing capability of the truck? That's the only thing that's prevents me from hauling to much. The Trailer has a GVWR of 16,100 lbs and weighs about 4,000 empty. The b21 is no more than 3 or 4 or 5 thousand pounds so I'm only half way to the weight rating. That said the truck is only supposed to pull 10K, but sometimes when the bone heads at the quarry don't listen to what I say and dump more in than I ask for I end up towing 12 or 13 thousand pounds. If I had a bigger truck, I could put 12,000lbs of stone or dirt in it, which is more than a F550 type dump can hold, so it's a pretty serious dump trailer. As for walking around it to tie it up, it's obviously not as convenient as a side less regular trailer, but it's 102in wide so its got pretty decent room inside and saves me having to buy a 5 or 6 thousand dollar equipment trailer too. I've put skid steers, backhoes, and excavators in it (though the latter is quite frightening to load/unload). Sorry if I am hijacking, just trying to answer his question.
