    I am looking at purchasing an enclosed trailer. What size are you guys running and what can you fit in it. What kind of axels do you need and what options should I get I want to make one purchase and be done. I would like to fit 2 z's 2 push mowers 2? wb's possibly everything else I can mount on the wall I think I may not be able to get all that on the trailer.

    I got a 7'x15' enclosed.

    Its got 3500lb axles both with brakes.

    I wen't with the V-Nose to try and squeze better fuel economy.

    I can fit one toro z a, wb and a 21 with all my trimmers/edgers and blowers with pleanty of room to walk around in.

    Go bigger so you have room to walk around in it.


    Here is a pic of mine, the wheels suck I know.

    To figure out the size you need take all your crap and park it on say a driveway like your loading a trailer then take measure what size every thing is.

    You can even go as far as drawing out a rectangle the size your looking at and you will get a great idea of how much walking room there is and if you need to go bigger.

    I got a 7000 capacity and it weighs close to 4000 with all my stuff in it.

    Here is an older pic of the inside of trailer before I got my trimmer racks.

    For 2-Z's, 2-WB's and 2-21s I'd say you'll really need a 24'

    We put 3-Z's, 2-WB's and 2-21's on 28'ers and they are slam full.
