    I am almost 14 now, and I am getting money for a trailer for my b-day, I will nolonger have to load the 21s and handhelds in my moms van:dizzy:. We are having a hitch installed soon:). I have 4 accounts that we drive to any were from .15 of a acre to half of a acer, 2 of them are on the same street the other 2 are not. Is a 5 by 8 big enough to haul a 48,32,and 21, or should I get something bigger, and is it a good idea to buy it off craigslist.
    Thanks,
    Ryan

    My 48 and 32 are both walkbehinds, I walk to the job site, but word of mouth has gotten out about me, and I have work in 3 diffrient neighborhoods, plus I will mow for family, so I need a trailer. I know I sound young for work, but it is what I like, my busnises is my passion

    set them up on the driveway and take a tape measure and figure out the way you want to place them on the trailer then measure the space they take up

    You sound exactly like I was at 14...... Now im a crumpy old man. This business was also my passion when i was a kid. Once this business starting paying my mortgage and all my bills I lost my passion. Now its a job!

    I would say go with a 6x10 or 6x12 to give you the most room. That way there you cold have it for a few years if the biz stays the same size. That is a popular size to reselling it would be no problem either. good luck. Put pics on once you get it.
