    6x14 Should be Great for your setup. Neuswede- It says in his signature he has 2 Lesco w/b's.

    look at it this way, if you go bigger you'll always have extra room that i'm sure you won't have a prob filling with soemthing vs smaller and wishing you had bought the bigger

    get the bigger, its only $200 more

    btw, nice truck.......you won't really know its back there....mine is '02

    Never too big... We bought a 8.5' x 20' enclosed and it doesn't hold enough... we were trying to decide between the 20', 24', 28' and we went with the 20' because it is easier to get in and out of some of the tight driveways and places we go. Wish we would have went with at least 24'.

    Bigger is always better, you think its to big now but once you get it, it will still be too small.

    7x14 no trailer can ever be big enough.
