    5x8 Or 5x10. But i think the 8 footer should be just fine. If you have a Home Depot near you. You can go there and buy one of them 5x8 Snowbear trailers for $300-400.

    When I was 16 I bought a 16' landscape trailer. I tell ya, get the biggest possible trailer you can afford. The dealer wanted me to buy a 10' but I opted out to get the 16' so I could tow my dad's Nova. Now that i'm 18, the trailer is too small. I want a 24' in the next 2 years

    We started with a small trailer that would fit easily into the garage. And small ones are easy to push around by hand.

    Normally I would say 16' double axle, but if you have is a push mower you might think about one of those hitch mounted platforms that are 2' x 4'. Applicators in my area use them for those ride on spreaders. Have you ever seen what I'm talking about? I think their good for 500 lbs or so and would probably cost a couple hundred.
