    Here it is the final, i have been in contact with 3 dealers within 100 miles of me about this Moritz LS 6.5x 20

    I get the trailer

    2- 6000 axles

    tool box up front in the goose neck

    spring assisted split gate

    3280.00 +tax title

    I have to drive 38miles to pick it up

    they will have it in a week or so

    I have been comtemplating the whole thing between 16, 18, or 20

    I have outgrown the 12 i have now years ago

    need a 16 but might as well go 18, the if 18 then why not 20

    question I can save 140 bucks if I go 18, is 20 any harder to manuever than 18

    I consider myself a step from expert with some footage behind me

    thanks alot

    We have a 7X16ft open trailer and we carry two ztrs, 2 21's, 2 trimmer, 1 edger, 2 backpack and a walkbehind blower. Our trailer has a foot or two left (we use for debris) once everything is loaded. Our next trailer will be an 18ft because it is nice to be able to haul extra equipment if needed, pine straw, mulch, plants, etc. When buying a trailer always buy bigger than you think you need.

    I'd get the 20'....better have two extra feet for the $140 than kicking yourself later for not....as for getting it around,.I think you will be fine....in the tighter places I think width hurts more than length...and being a open trailer you can see a little better than if it was a 20' enclosed

    Techniquely it is 2-6000# axles

    due to some stupid PA law they rate them at 9950 I was told to keep the registration down or something to that effect

    This is my closest dealer of 3

    and best price by 300 bucks.

    I dont like getting caught with my pants at my ankles so i am getting this asap

    it takes 4-6 weeks to order if they are not already built i was told

    later
