    Hi ,I was wondering if i could get some feed back regarding enclosed trailer sizing. I am looking at a 7x14 enclosed trailer and wondering if a 60" ztn ,48"wb and 21" push along with other tools and such will fit in a 7x14.This would be my 1st enclosed trailer so im not quite sure. Thank you, john

    No way spend the money and get a full width 8.5ft wide trailer. I have a 7x14 with a 44" and trimmer racks on both sides along with ladders and blower racks. Its a squeeze walking around inside. I would go with at least a 16x8.5

    Yeah, go for at least a 16ft trailer, and at least 7ft wide, but 8.5 wide would be nice for lawn care!

    Yes no way. Your gonna wanna go with at least 16ft long and 80 wide. If you go with a 14 your going to be way to cramped. I have a 14 ft open this past year and its small I'm going with a 16 closed this year.

    And for some crazy reason, a 14ft tandem open trailer will cost you more than a 16ft tandem open on average? I thought this was kinda odd, but the guy told me there is only so many 14ft trailers and lots of 16fters, so that alone makes them cost more! It doesnt sound right though?

    go at least 16 or 18 minimum. the 7ft vs 8ft is a matter of style and opinion i think. i know here a 7ftx18 vs 8ftx18 enclosed is about $1200 less for the 7ft.
