Keep the 5X 8 as a spare trailer and get a 14ft or 16ft and you'll have all the room you should need. unless you plan on hauling a tractor latter on.

keep the 5x8 buy a 16 ft so you will have some extra room to move around, thats what i did and when i bought my 16 ft i couldve gotten a 14 ft the exact same for the same price so i stepped up to the 16 and never regretted it

16' just works better for LCO. its big without being difficult to pulls and hold my mowers with room for limbs, trash ext. the width is best for Landscapers and LCO if you stay around 6'6" wide.
I as well have a 5x8 old snowmobile trailer for a back up. Or usually it holds limbs i pick up and i use the 5x8 to transfer the big load to the refuge city dump when full.

Go for a 14ft or 16ft. Will give you room to expand. Bigger is better is what my girlfriend used to tell me, before she left me!
