    You can go on to http://www.lawnsite.com/forumdisplay.php?f=51 Start a new thread with (WTB 5x8, 5x10 trailer) or even try craiglist. I know there a couple of guys on this page that have trailer but are a bit bigger than what you are looking for (7x14, 7x16).

    Thanks, I'll let ya know!

    I wish you were looking for something a little bigger. I'm trying to sell my 6.5x14 to upgrade to a bigger trailer. Good luck either way....

    Here is a link to the for sale thread I started. There are a couple pics and I'm asking $2100, but make me an offer and we'll see what we can do. I need to keep the front cage and the trimmer and blower racks as well as the vac in the picture, but let me know if you want any of the other stuff and the price could be adjusted. Let me know what ya think! Thanks man.... http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=294493&highlight=trailer+for+sale

    JM, If you really want a trailer that small, go to Lowes and pickup one of those new Carry-on trailers. You really don't want to buy a used trailer that small. Very likely it was overloaded at one time or more. You'll spend about $1000 for a new small trailer, with no worries, from one of the big box stores. For about $1500 you can start with a 6'x12' that will serve more than one season. If you want to get a good 6"x12" trailer and have service available when you need, DTW in Turnersville can make some great deals.

    If you think you will need 14' and tandem axles are a big plus,although more expensive to operate, Bill has a nice trailer for sale. I'd like to have a trailer like Bill's, but I don't want to work that hard, now maybe a dump trailer would do the trick.

    Used trailers can be very good, it's the abused ones you have to keep an eye out for, and the smaller they are, the more they seem to be abused.

    don't make the mistake of buying a small one! if you think you will need a 5x10 now, I would go for at least a 6x12 if not bigger. You will out grow your trailer ALOT faster than you think!

    hes right, take it from someone whos made the mistake. I got a 5x10 as soon as i could drive, it was fine when i was doing it part time and still in school but once i got out of highschool and went full time it became a pain in the a**

    like dreams to designs said if you go for a 6x14 tadem axels the way to go, I couldnt afford them when i got my 6x14 this year, but definately want a tandem next year
