    I need a bigger trailer.... I currently mostly use a 6x12 open trailer. Once loaded with my ZTR (with bagger) and push mower it's pretty full, could get 1 more 21 on there. I also have a 6x8? open tilt bed trailer and a 18 foot car hauler which I use to haul cars or heavy items or a lot of stuff, it doesn't get used a lot.

    So the question is, what should I upgrade to?? a larger open trailer (how large) or a large enclo$ed trailer (how large). what are the main advantages and disadvantages of both??

    any input would be very helpful.

    You can get more stuff on an open trailer, than you can put in a open trailer of the same size. Taking that into consideration I have an enclosed trailer for the ease of storage and security. Not to mention my equipment does not get caught out in the rain.
