    Do any of you out there know where I can get a 4-1/2' x 12' landscape trailer? I know it's a funky size, but I have a unique storage situation and that is the size I need. I had a guy lined-up to build me one, but he backed out of the deal. Any help would be appreciated.

    Strickdad,

    I could use a 6 X 14 if I could store it! My problem is with storage, I can't go too wide and fit the trailer where I need to store it. It's a bummer, but I have to make do because the alternative is a lot of time wasted picking up my stuff from an alternative site. More time spent picking stuff up = less time cutting = less $$$.

    Explain your storage situation. A local guy has a 7X16 trailer that fits in a 7 1/2 foot wide space cuz he bought it with the tires underneath (8 inch rims).
     
  5. I have a 5 1/2' x 12' trailer that is a standard size. You can just get a 62" on the back of it.

    It is one of those trailers built in Texas by performance trailer. I bought mine in NJ at a trailer dealer on rt 206 south of I-80 near Flanders NJ.

    I know a guy that has the same setup. He has used this trailer and a 77 Ford 1/2 ton Pickup for the past 16 years.

    modified to bring the tires in and underneath, but it may sit up a little higher. Check with the trailer dealers in your area about this option. Any welding shop would be able to convert it for you also.

    You may want to check prices on enclosed trailers which would solve your under roof storage problem quite well, but not sure what your budget is.
