    I am currently looking for a trailer for the upcoming season. I needed your input on what size to get. I am currently using a 48" wright stander and a toro 21". I plan to purchase a 36" this summer. I want the 36" and 21" to fit side by side at the front and the 48" at the back. I know everyone says go big you won't regret it but I don't plan on upgrading my equipment in the next few years so I won't be growing into this trailer. I was thinking a 6' x 12', or should I go with a 14'. It's just that a 14' seems really long and I would have excess space.
    Your input please.
    By the way I am looking at a open trailer.

    I am currently using a 14 and am looking at buying a gooseneck in a 18, don't know why you think a 14 is too long, the only place I can't go is the drive throughs at fast food restaurants.
