I'm not sure what the weight of my trailer has to do with you buying a trailer.

That's with a 60" ZTR, 52" WB and 21"er. Also tools, fuel, trimmers, saws, and anything else that makes it way on for the day.

Lets see...my trailer weighs 2880lbs empty, add roughly 2000lbs for the ztr, another 1000lbs for a stand-on mower and maybe a few hundred pounds for grass/debris. So that'd be 6500 pounds maybe, fully loaded. My trailer is an 83"x18'.

I think your 18' enclosed trailer is probably more like 1800lbs.... 2800lbs is like a heavy duty dump trailer and your Z is probably like 1000lbs-1200lbs, I could be wrong but those weights seem a bit high.
