    I guess that info would help huh...

    I will be hauling Toro 48 walk behind with saulky, 60" Exmark zero turn, assorted trimmers, backpack blowers, rakes, shovels etc. I also want to get
    some type of leaf collection unit.

    I will tow it with 05 dodge cummings quad cab 4x4.

    Thanks again

    Yeah, and it sounds like at least 16 feet in length, or, maybe even 20 feet !!

    I have an 8 x 20 Competitor by Avenger brand trailer. It is going on it's 8th season. It's been a fantastic trailer.

    The best money I ever spent in this business was that trailer and getting the floor, ramp and one foot up on all interior walls sprayed with Line-X.

    I have a 7 x 16 enclosed and love it. I do wish I had gotten the 8' wide verion. It will make it a little easier to move around inside.
