    Hey everybody, im going to be having a trailer built for me soon and im looking for any input and pro and cons. Ihe trailer will be 18 to 20 feet long and 6 feet wide or so at the inner fenders, 3 foot tall walls, a tool cage mounted up hgh on the front, twin 6k axles with breaks and a reinforced lift gate, i calculate the trailer is good for up to 10k capacity.for now i specilize in rural site clean up, fuels reduction, field mowing. for now we have 2 quads with 2 pull behind mowers that work great, chainsaws, and good ol elbow grease. I figure i could get a smaller trailer but why if i plan for bigger equipment for next year right. Thanks for any responces.:dancing:

    At least 7 feet a little bigger would be better though. Give you enough room to walk around.

    The resale on a wider trailer will be higher; not many people want a trailer that is so long but not very wide.
