    OK guys just wanted to let you know that if you are going to get a storage unit and they tell you it's a 12 X 20 unit, measure it for yourself. As some of you know by past posts this week I'm looking to get a bigger trailer. well, I'm glad I did not order it yet. I went and checked the unit size today and it was 18.5' not the 20' they told me it was.

    So, just a word of warning to check, for those that don't know. plus the door size is smaller then the internal size. Something else to keep in mind.

    Not the trailer size was off. i don't even have that yet. The Storage Unit size was off. Thats why I'm glad I didn't order the trailer yet. It wouldn't of fit in the storage unit.

    That is not good. Have they adjusted your bill to charge you less for the space you really don't have?

    I had to drop that storage unit and go and find another. These things cost an arm and a leg too don't they? I have found a 12 X 30' bit to big for my needs but that all they had in a good location to to where I can pull around and back straight in. Must order the trailer now.

    Funny as well how you tell them what your pulling and the size of the truck and they show you area's that you would have no way backing it in.

    The one I had was suppose to be 10X20 but the entrance was actually smaller cuz you have to have room for the door to slide down.
