    I am out-growing my 6x12 enclosed trailer.. so I am currently shopping for a new enclosed. I am considering a 16x7 Haulmark Transport. I have not seen one in person so I don't know if this is a well built trailer. Can someone comment? Would a 16x7 be the right size for me... 2 Lazers, maybe a walk-behind and misc stuff?

    Let me know......

    You better do some re-figuring, no way you will get two Z's and a walk-behind in a 16 footer, especially when it's only 7 feet wide.

    We had an 18 x 8

    It fit two Z's and a walk-behind turned sideways up front.

    But, it was a house on wheels. Too big and stressful to drive, forget about sending it out with the average employee.

    Nice part, it was nice to the equipment, kept sun and rain off.

    Its up to you, I wouldn't recommend enclosed unless you have mostly wide-open properties and not too many stops per day.

    I have had enclosed, open tandem and single, and straight truck. My favorite is pictured below: I will never trailer again.

    Depends on what mowers you are using, I have a Haulmark and love it:

    Thanks for the comments so far.. but what I'd really like to know.... is the "Transport" model a decent trailer?

    Ray.. what model & size is that?

    Maybe consider an 18' trailer. At 16' my open trailer just has enough room to put my 61" Y/K and 60" Lazer straight on and the 36" walkbehind on sideways at the rear. There is very little room to spare...like inches! There is no way I would want to have to maneuver that walkbehind sideways in an enclosed trailer :eek: When I go enclosed, it will be probably 20'

    I have a 25' v-nose, and its pack pretty tight with 2 ztr's and a w/b. I don't think I would go any shorter then 20'

    I HAVE A 16' OPEN TRAILER, I CAN GET TWO LAZERS AND A WALK BEHIND ON IT FINE. THIS LEAVES LITTLE ROOM FOR ANYTHING ELSE BUT IT FITS.
