    ummm...I dunno, like 14 total...appalachian trail from Georgia to Maine and then Continental Divide trail from Canada through Montanna and 2/3 of the way through Wyoming. That's before I had a riding mower though, rofl.

    A 5 x 10 will work perfect but in a couple years youll be buying a bigger trailer. I started when i was 16 (now almost 19) with a 5 x 10 and still use it today. This spring ill be buying a 6 x 14 all aluminum double axle.

    Yes. A 5 x 10 will be cheaper, lighter and a lot easier to tow around. If you get more accounts in a couple of years you can sell it and get a bigger one. But if you find a good deal on a 6 x 12 buy it.

    I would take $1,800.OBO. It has 221 hours on the meter.

    A 6ft. wide trailer works better(Remember a 60" wide mower is 5ft.)
