    Hey guys. Buying an enclosed trailer before season starts again. I'm running 2 61'' Turf Tigers and a Ferris 1500 on one crew. The other has 2 61'' Turf Tigers and a 36'' TrimStar. What size would yall recommend? 8 or 8.5 wide and 20, 22, or 24 long? Thanks.

    Im not sure about the length for you but I would recommend a 8.5 wide. I looked at an 8' wide and then a 8.5' wide and was pleased with that little bit of extra space

    Get the biggest one you can use in the areas that you travel. That equipment should fit in a 20'. 24' would come in handier. A gooseneck trailer will take a longer trailer into a tighter cul-de-sac. After using a 20' gooseneck around town, I really don't like pulling my 20' tag-along. My 2 door dually pick-up is more pleasant to use than my 4 door dually.

    I have a friend who has a 25 ft. enclosed Wells Fargo Custom Trailer for sale. He paid over $24,000 for it. He is selling it for $12,500. Anyone interested in it let me know I can get you some pics. I have it on Craigslist for him here in the Roanoke Virginia Area. Great looking trailer. Let me know.
