New trailer help!!

Looking at getting a new trailer. Needs to be somewhat small to fit in a garage, so not looking for a trailer with 'room to grow'. Have a 52" stander and ZTR (one will be sold) and a 48"ztr. Would a 52 and a 48 and 21 fit on a 12 foot trailer?

Show me your 12-14 foot open trailer set ups!! I want to see how to do this best and learn from your mistakes

They should fit depending on the size of the zero turn. I had a 60" grandstand and 60" exmark zero turn on a 12'er, they fit with about a foot to spare. You can mark out on the ground trailer sizes and see what fits, just remember that the sides will be in the way if you get anything taller than 1 foot.

Why nothing taller than a foot? I don't plan on having anything hang over the rails

With one foot sides you can hang handle bars over the side and save a little space or give you a different configuration. its more of a personal choice and what your business needs are.

like others have said on previous threads if you are not concerned with growth pick the three mowers you want to use and take with you when mowing put them in the driveway and measure around them...buy trailer that fits. Sorry I don't have a pic of mine but i have a 6.5x12 and can take 48 WB and 48 ZTR WB has sulky attached and i can put two 21" mowers on the trailer as well
