    hey i need some advice!....i am on a very very limited budget and i need a new trailer and i need an enclosed one because i have no where to store my equipment. i have the opportunity to buy a 6x10 enclosed trailer i have a 36in WB and a 44in WB and the usual other stuff blowers trimmers things like that...the guy that i might buy this trailer from said he got his 36in WB and his 48in WB in the trailer he said it was a tight fit but it worked i have had a couple of other guys that said i could fit my stuff in there its a single axle trailer and its $900 what do you think?....do you think i could fit the equipment in the trailer?...and what do you think about the price (I'm pretty sure thats a good price for the trailer) do you think it would be a good purchase?.....I'm not planing on upgrading....i know that next year there is this guy i know that is going to sell is bigger trailer and i might sell this one and then buy that one i think i could maybe make a profit on it!...but I'm not sure...

    Sound pretty good those trailers go brand new for about 2k so if the trailer is in good condtion in sounds like a good buy. As for wheter it will fit or not im not sure but you can buy racks to save you space. . Sorry couldnt help more.

    $900 buy it as long as its in good condition. i have been looking on ebay and stuff for them and i can find one for under $1500 unless its a 4x8 and thats way to small. my advise is buy it. if i was closer i would already have it in my drive way.

    i go to an auction every week they just sold a 20 ft double axle enclosed trailer for $1200 here in perfect working condition if that tells you anything
    i see 12 ft trailers like the one your talking about sold for $400 - $500 every now and then

    That sounds like a good price. I load all my equip in the trailer first to make sure it fits before I bought it.
    Take some pic's if you get it..
