Does anyone else use 21ft trailers? Are they to long for res. areas?

    Thinking of upgrading to a 21ft bumper hitch . Presently have a 16 and a 12. I would then use the 16 for the second crew.

    I'm looking at a 20 foot enclosed, I don't think it would be too big.

    I thought trailer lenghts went in even number increments. I've never heard of a 21' trailer.

    I've never heard of a 21ft. either. Tape measures must be a little off in Waterloo.

    I got a 24' I'm ready to give away!

    Mine fits most places but when the lots are small you'll be blocking the neighbors driveway.

    I'm going back to an open trailer one way or the other.......shoulda never put my 20' er in the deal to get this Greyhound bus:(

    Heh can't remember the last time we did that. Our smallest rig is 45' truck and trailer. Residential isn't a problem except for dead ends. But I think with any trailer you would have to back out anyway. :cool:
