    Im getting a 20 footer to haul a 61ztr, 48wb, and 52wb

    should the Zero go over the tires because of weight

    Not that I know anything, but you can haul all of those machines EASILY with a 16 footer.

    I realize that, I need a 16 right now, so always get something to grow into, the 20 is only a 14 more, and I know Ill fill it. But thanks for your concern

    no cant fit all those mowers on a 16 footer. i have all wbs and i have to turn sideways to load all of them on a 16 footer. i always put the heaviest mower over the axels but if i dont have to get on the highway all day i put it last . it really depends on what mower you will be using the most.

    we have the 20' (well 20 inside so i think 22 or 4 outside). Anyhow, we transport a 61Z, and 2 48WBs. WE found it was MUCH better to load the WBs up front and keep the Z in the rear (just about over the tires). The trailer handles a lot better. With the Z in the front it put a lot of weight on the tongue and was pitched. With the Z in the back it rides level and isn't as bouncy.

    just my two cents
