Buying trailer

http://southjersey.craigslist.org/for/2493128890.html

Really looking for a trailer...what do you guys think of this? I run a 32 wb a 52 wb and a 46 zero turn...would this be good enough?

Thanks!

Suonds like it may be a little tight for all your equipment.

Well I will tell you that here a good 7x16 tandem axle trailer can be bought for that kind of money if you look hard enough. We only paid $600 for one that needed a new floor which cost us $140. I think he is asking too much, but your area may be different. Look around and see what everything else in the same category is going for.

Yeah, it's about same price as most others that size. I'm only looking for single axle and 6x12, not looking for anything too big

The width is the most important thing in my opinion. it sucks climbing over mowers to get one thing.

I have a 7x12 that I put a 48" walk behind, 21" mower, blower, weed eater and edger on. Seems like I always have to unload everything just to get to the walk behind. It is fine for hauling my quads but not really efficient for work. You can purchase a new trailer that size at Home Depot/Lowes for a couple hundred $ more.

My trailer is a 6'4" (inside) X 14' (inside).

NO WAY I could get two ZTR's on it. I can't get my ZTR and my ATV on it (neither will fit, sideways). I do carry a 36"WB a 21" and the ZTR, easily, though.

My ZTR is 80" (pretty sure). 80+36+52= 168/12= 14'.

52+36+52= 140"/12= 11'8"+

Whatcha think?

Since this has got the two gates, i think it will work out good with the 32 wb or the 46 rider comming off, rather than unloading everything
