I've got a 24' enclosed Classic Dominator.

If you're looking at enclosed, let me lend you this opinion.

If you do alot of mowing with a push mower, or if you're going to use whatever piece of equipment that you have in front of your other mowers / equipment, look at a "V-Nose" where you can drive whatever off the front ramp.

This is the only reason that I'm looking at a new trailer. That, and mine is 7 years old now.

I know I should have washed it before I took the pic, but just the one wheel looks odd

I run a 24ft enclosed and we do a lot of push mowing. When you open the side door I have a ramp that folds down there and 4 push mowers across the front under a work bench. That way if we pull up to a small yard we can just open the side door drop the ramp and get out the 21's and not have to move our walkbehinds or z's. This setup has worked very well for us and I have just ordered a new 28' trailer.

I've had good luck with Haulmark trailers. My new one will be a 28ft Elite II Race trailer. On my new trailer I ordered it with a 4ft ramp door on the side instead of a regular door.

Premier- do you really see yourself getting 3 ztr's in the future? I think a 14 or 16 footer fit all your stuff fine.

im not getting a 24footer. if you have read my previous posts you would have read that. a 24footer would be way to big for the narrow streets
