    Does anyone know what the door opening is on average of a 6ft wide? Will a 61" mower fit inside? Its okay if its a tight fit.

    I have a 6x12 enclosed Haulmark 07. I have a 52" rider and have maybe 2" to spare on each side going in and even tighter between the door opener cables. I often snag them and have to fanagle my way off the ramp. Hope this helps.

    Hey I just went out to measure my trailer. I have 62.5" at the door and 60.5" in between the cables at the bottom of the ramp. My mower measures 55" so it is more like 4" on each side. You might be able to angle in on the ramp to miss the cables and drive straight in at the door if your under 62.5". Hope this helps.

    ok, cool that great, thanks. Im looking at getting a Wells Cargo so maybe the cables on that are a little farther apart.
