    well see, the one im looking at is 2300, but i know someone who can get one for me for $150 over cost. so im trying to get a feel for how much that would be. the only hard part is contacting him :-/

    A enclosed trailer is always a good purchase for a contactor,but is the size your looking at tall enough I know that a lot of 6x12 don't have a lot of head room. and yes it sounds like a good deal in IL. that price would probably get you a 5x8. If you buy a enclosed I would advise spending a little extra and have someone letter it that will grab peoples attention.

    You currently have a 5x10 trailer according to your sig line.

    I suggest you go bigger that 6x12 if you're looking to replace it.

    I ended up buying 4 trailers my first 2 years in business because I was scared to make the big jump.

    I now have a 8x20 enclosed that is slam full when I carry everything I have.

    My 8x20 can carry a Toro 52" Z, a Toro 62" Z, a 48" Walker, 2 Toro push mowers and all the string trimmers stick edgers blowers shovels rakes spreaders I can use in a day.

    The really nice thing about enclosed trailers is they are rolling billboards.

    thats an AWSOME set up you have. perhaps i should get a 7x14 or 7x16? if i want a 8x20 its 4 grand, and i dont really have the money to spend on that big of a trailer, because if i want a big trailer like that i will need a bigger truck, and im not planning on buying a bigger truck until october. but hopefully ill get one sooner, who knows. but for right now a 8x20 would be over kill for my set up. but i do plan on getting a Z. so perhaps a 7x16 would be a good size to get.

    if you go bigger I would suggest 16' beccause if the day comes you have 2 ztr's it's a tight fit with all the other equipment. If you guys can buy a 6x12 for $1800 or a 8x20 for $4000 sounds like I need to take a road trip,I could make some loot at those prices in IL
