You'll be fine. I have a large frame 60" ZT and a 52" stander that fits on a 14 footer.

Mark out the size of trailer (?X16) on the ground with chalk or something. Park mowers in that spot. Try the configuration you want to use & if they don't fit in the box you have marked, try different configs (i.e. turn walkbehind sideways, backwards, etc) til one works.

It will probably work but what about if you gotta haul wheelbarrows, blowers, gas cans, extra mower, etc.

C Jovingo Landscaping had a good idea to.

I have a cage appprox 2'D X 2'H X 6'W with plywood lid & locks. It is mounted on posts at front of trailer & front of walkbehind goes under it. I keep Gas cans, backpack & handheld blower in it. I also have diamond plate toolbox mounted on tongue across front of trailer for tools, spoll of trimmer line, 2stroke oil, reg oil, ratchet straps, bungie straps, tow chain, cordless drill, tarps, spare parts (belts) etc. As far as wheelbarrow i just put it beside one of my walkbehinds upside down & strap it.

That will be tight.

I've got a 60" Grandstand, 60" Toro G3 large frame and a 44" Proline and that's a comfortable, properly secured herd of mowers on my 7x18'. Sans the 2' extra, the proline would be back at the shop.

I think it would be tight if it fit. I agree with C Jovingo's advice to mark it out on the ground and see if the mowers fit. I have a 7 X 14 and have a A Scag Rider, A Scag V-Ride and a Scag walkbehind and I can only do 2 at a time and 2 additional feet wouldn't get me my 3rd. I am running an enclosed trailer. I didn't see if you mentioned open or closed. If it's open and you can get the walkbehind sideways maybe. I cannot get my walkbhind sideways in my enclosed trailer.

I started with a 12, then a 14 and now an 18.
Wish I had a 20.
Bigger is more versatile.
