You'll think that now lol Until you start adding more stuff, we got two 20's and a 24' with a 2' dove tail and hands down thats the trailer we like to use the most, can never have to big of a trailer IMO

Rule #1 with buying a trailer...whatever size you think you need, get at least 2 sizes up from that.

I think a 16 or 18 foot trailer would probably suffice for 99% of my needs. So I want to go with the 20 to be sure.

Not bad, I enjoy the way that stream area looks after I get done cutting it.

Exactly, no dump insert for me for a while. I'd probably rather have a cab and chassis trruck with a dump on it...
