    Do they make a 66" Or 5.1/2' trailer? Can't seem to find one. I am getting a Scag 48". With the bagger the width is about 59" and I don't want to tear up the trailer or mower with a five foot wide trailer. Thanks

    I want to stay small and do residential lawns. I'm towing it with an 04 jeep cherokee with a 4.0L V-6. Putting the clippings into a buddies old Ranger P/U truck. Also they don't make a true 6' wide trailer. I've only found 6'4" or 6'6". I'm looking for a length of 10'. I'll have my 48" zero turn with spindle driven baggging system, and a 21" Honda push mower and thats about it. Thats all I really want on it. Less is more. Thanks

    DOOLITTLE DOES MAKE THE 66" WIDE TRALIER BUT I CAN'T GET ONE UNTIL THE THE MIDDLE OF MAY. ANY OTHER TRAILER MANUFACTURERS SELL THE
    66" WIDE TRAILER. I'LL GO WITH A 72" WIDE TRAILER AT THE MOST. I CAN'T FIND A TRUE SIX FOOT WIDE TRAILER EITHER. THEY ARE ALL 6'6". I'M LOOKING AT 10 OR 12' LONG. MY IDEAL TRAILER WOULD BE 5'6"x10'. THANKS
