What Size Trailer??

Would you need to fit a 36in mower with velke, and a 48in mower with velke?

I forgot the size of my bosses trailers.

5'x12' minimum. 6'x14' would be better. Or leave some extra room and go with 6'6" x16'

You can fit in on small trailers. You need enough to grow into. I have a 6'.5"x12' trailer and a 7'x18' trailer. I ran a 6'x14' before. I use the smallest trailer now as I can which is the 12' during mowing season. It allows me into residential areas easier. During leaf season or times I need more equipment I use the 18'. Get enough trailer you can grow into for a while. Then you can upgrade later.
