    I have a 8.5X20, the 72" fits but it's not fun to unload if your on a slope.

    I'm sellling the 72" and getting a 60".

    If you're going to do an enclosed, I wouldn't go under 20 ft.. You have room for growth, and room to move in the meantime.

    For a 72in mower you need at least a 6.10 trust me. I just bought a 6.5in trailer thinking it was just wide enough for my kubota f2100 72in I was wrong.

    6.5 is not wide enough

    To have all the equipment, misc. tools and attachments, and somewhat free movement, I would go 8.5x24. But you will need a nice 3/4 ton truck to pull it.....if you already have that then you should be set. Thats the size i'm looking at.....

    I can get a 60 ztr and two 52WBs in a 8x16 enclosed with room on both sides. Of course the the back is right to the gate.
