    What size trailers are you guys pulling everyday to mow? I want to go to a 6.5 x 18 but that just seems to big but I could put every mower on it. with the 6x 16 I can only get a 52 wb 52 ztr with bagger 21inch push. plus all the junk. I want to get the gateway on there also.

    I'm using a 6.5x16. Fit my 48wb, 52ztr, 21, and other misc small stuff. With some modification of the setup, I think I could make more room, but never enough for another larger piece as long as the rear bags are mounted on the ztr. Without the bags I bet I could make room on there for something else.

    Drew,

    I pull an 18' x 7' trailer every day. Nice thing is I can get the Turf Tiger and the Tiger Cub on plus a hand tiller, wheel barrow and a multitude of other tools. I also use this to trailer my Nor Trac tractor ( fits mower and tractor nicely ) I went this size because I also wanted to buy a dump trailer, and wanted to ensure the landscape trailer would fit my needs as best as possible. My advice is its kind of like putting up a new shop, make it bigger than your first thoughts you will be happier.

    I run a 20' open. Enough room for two Z's, a couple 21's (usually only one), a toolbox on the front, and probably enough room to accomodate a rear bagger if I ever smarten up, loose the basket and get a real system.

    Its got a 5 ft dovetail with tandem axles and dual wheels. It will carry up to 23,000 lbs. I need it to carry heavy equipment, landscaping materials, pallets of mulch and the Jeeps when we go wheeling on the weekends. Its an Anderson trailer BTW.

    I would give serious consideration to the TOWING capacity of the vehicle..............16.....18 ......20+ ft................HOLY CRAP, don't even consider 35 ft..................................I think you are pushing your luck, and may very well end up pushing your truck........

    P.S. I am currently pulling open 5x10 TopHat, 4 ft ramp..........carries my LB 21 and my Encore Z48...with room for a few cans of "stuff"................S-10 is in semi retirement.........the Ram is now my hauler........
