    Just wondering if anyone uses a trailer that tall and for what reasons.

    I have an 8 x 16 trailer I use for irrigation. 6'6" interior height. Why? Because my last trailer was 5'6" tall and I got all grumpy all the time having to crouch down everytime I went into the trailer for parts, etc. Going to the larger trailer was probably the best investment I made in terms of pushing productivity. I can get in and out of it quickly, walk through it without tripping over stuff and I built out a decent set of bins for parts so I can see in a glance what inventory needs to be replenished. And I don't ever bang my head.. .you can't put a price on that last one....

    What would be a good price for a new/used enclosed trailer. I currently have a 6x14 open dual axel trailer and need to go bigger. Just trying to weigh the different pro's and con's on a different/new open trailer or [perhaps step up and get an enclosed trailer. I still plan on keeping my 14 footer just to haul stuff. Any ideas guys? Also how easy is it to rig the inside of an enclosed trailer with wall attachments for blower and weed eaters?
