    i'm looking to get a 8x20 enclosed. is 7000 enough for the equipment?right now i am using a 36w/b,48w/b and a 52 ztr with a bagging system. i might take a the 36w/b out in the future and put in a bigger w/b or another ztr.

    I personally prefer Haulmark, but I think that both companies build respectable trailers.

    I would DEFINITELY recommend that you go with am10k gvwr trailer.

    I have a 7k 20' and i cant even go into detail on how many times i wish it was a 10k. Well worth the money now.

    Remember to check your state's laws on CDLs and such.if tou aren't already licensed. That 10K trailer will put you over the 18001 GCWR that some state allow for intrastate use.

    And did they finally get rid of the traffic circle on 201 at Flemington?
