    Figured I would ask the group of guys that actually use the trailers on a day to day basis as compared to the sales guys.

    What do you guys recommend?

    We are not a landscaping company but we will be using the trailer for the purposes of hauling siding equipment and scaffolding. I will have some longer rails welded up on the sides and it will have something akin to a ladder rack hoop going over the top.

    What brand and options should I be looking for.

    I am thinking something in the 7' by 16' range?

    Thanks for all the advice in advance.

    7' by 16' should be plenty for us to grown into right now and is the happy medium, for us, about maneuverability.
