    What size trailer do all of you use and what do you manage to cram into it.

    I run a 6x12 enclosed. I have a 22" push, WB edger, 2 eaters, bp blower, (2) 5 gallon gas cans, (2) 2.5 gallon gas cans. and a 44" gravely Z

I just got this trailer this spring and already wish I had went witha 14 or 16 footer....

    6.5x14 open. It just barely fits two standers and a sentar. Or my kubota tractor. Also my sail boat(built a rack that bolts onto the floor that the boat, mast, and sail sit on) I am glad I bought the 14 over the 12 foot. It was only a $50 difference but worth it.

    got a 6x10 single axle that i can barely squeeze a 50" gravely WB + 48 scag. I just picked up my Gravely 260Z last friday in the afternoon, tomorrow is my first day out full schedule with it and my 50" gravely WB. i've got 3lb's of sh$t in a 2lb bag so to speak. I' built a shelf to park the WB on in teh front of the trailer with it hangin over the tongue, then i park the Z behind it... It should be interesting tomorrow :)

    6x12 Big Tex

    48 inch Z
    36 inch WB with velke
    21 push
    blower, trimmer, edger, gas cans, water jug

    Plenty of room for all of this on there. I did convert it to a tandem axle though so it would handle the weight and tow better
