hahahaha!! Vibes quick serious ass. Although if you really did have a minivan it would be absolutely hilarious! I have the exact same setup as you, well almost - i have a 98 cutless . But I just got a 5x8 too mostly because its cheaper than a truck but also because the general consensus is that it sucks to put your mower in the back of a truck. The only problem I have is that because my hitch is so low, its impossible to get any angle on the trailer other than a forward one. Have you had this problem with your vibe as well? Also, I'm curious has to both the length of your gate and the height of your trailer. And, one more question, if you don't mind me asking, what trimmer racks are you using? Or did you make them? Keep on rocking!
