    I have a 6x12 enclosed and ran out of room quick. I now wish I went 7x14.

    The smallest I would go is a 6x12. It might be worth getting an extra two feet of trailer just in case you need to put extra stuff on it.

    When I used trailers, all of mine were 7.5' X 16', I loved the size! I have since switched over to flatbed trucks with ramps on the back. I love this setup much better!!

    Always get bigger than you think you need.
