    I have a 12x6 open trailer and I was wondering if anyone out there also uses a 12x6? I'm trying to see what kind of mowers and how many they carry on there, also looking to see how they park the mowers on the trailers and how they set-up the trailer for easy use during mowing.

    Im trying to see what others are doing with their trailers to make them easier to work off of so I can make mine more user friendly and see where I can save or make up some room.

    On my 6x12 (actually 6'3"x12'): 48" Lazer Z hp, 36" Stander, 36" Walkbehind, 21" push, and large trash can. I can put the three large mowers on in any order; most covenient is the walkbehind front left, Stander front right (side by side), Z on back right, 21" behind the walkbehind. Sometimes: 36" walkbehind sideways on front, 48" Z sideways in the middle (it's a tight fit!), and Stander in back. With the other mowers in front, you could fit a full size 60" Z behind them, so long as it is less than 7' long.

    2 Everrides, 34" and 52", plus room for a Craftsman push mower. I plan on renovating the trailer next winter, repainting it Everride yellow, new racks, new floor boards, LED lights, new signs, and other stuff, but I might just buy a newer and better built trailer. I don't know if I want to put a lot of money into this trailer.

    I can carry 2 z's with no problem on my 6x14 it would be a little tighter on a 6x12 I mean a lot tighter. I have had my scag and a 72 inch diesel kubota on mine. It was very squished. I love having a too big trailer because it comes in handy because I normally carry the tiger cub only. I like being able to haul debris and mow.

    I just drilled through the side of the trailer and bolted it on. The ramp signs- I bought some small L shaped brackets and bolted them to the ramps and bolted on the signs.
