    there would be many things we would need to know.

    What size walk behind, how wide is the trailer, sides or no sides

    It's 7.5 wide. All Ferris mowers. One maybe two 48", and two maybe three 33". I foot sides on the trailer. More than likely it will be one 48" and three 33". If there's room I would like to be able to fit a few 21" mowers as well.

    I know with exmarks you can kinda fit them together like shopping carts because the front castor wheel arms are wide enough to fit around the rear frame of another exmark, but will not fit "into" a Ferris rear frame. I can fit 3 WBs on my 16ft, so you may be able to fit 4 on an 18ft very tight, and definitely on a 20ft..

    I'm lookinng at purchasing a PJ Trailer, I was going to get a 20' from a member on here but for $700 more I can get a brand new PJ. I figure I already have one PJ and might as well match trailers as well. I was thinking, place two or three 21" up front and four mowers along the length. A couple more 20' recommendations will confirm a 20' purchse.

    No side gate. I'm not a fan of how it looks and the guys shouldn't have a problem getting the mowers off. I'll put some more thought into it for sure.

    Yea, I hear you, I don't want one either. I don't like how one side looks cramped and its a obstruction in my point or view! Good luck and post pics whatever you go for!!!
