    Alright I have no intentions on pulling a 22 foot enclosed trailer with a s-10 :hammerhead: I just wanted to see what you guys would say.:cool2: But I am looking into a 5-10~6x12 enclosed trailer for the spring. Do you guys think I would have any problems? Its got the 4.3 v6 and I don't plan on going on the highway at all. I plan on having two 36 inch walkbehinds. and the normal trimmers and blowers?

    Thanks!

    You'll be okay pulling a 6 X 12 enclosed trailer.

    I truely did laugh when I read the title of the thread.

    Haha, That's what i was going for. What is a good price for a 6x12 enclosed with a ramp. Ive seen a few all around 1500 does that sound pretty fair?

    Sounds pretty fair to me, I paid 2200 for mine new in 07. Around here the new construction has all but stopped so many contractors are dumping everything cheap just to keep the lights on

    It depends on how much your putting on the trailer a walk behind and a push mower would be goos you start putting a rider also and you might have some trans problems

    To me that sounds like quite a bit of weight and strain for an S-10. When I saw the title on this thread I was like wtf is this guy thinking!

    The V-6 S-10 auto tranny is good for around a 5300 pound load. He'll be alright.

    I would be a little concerned about stopping it.
