Quick trailer question

Ok you guys think if I had a 6x12 trailer I could fit a 48in w/b and either a 48 or 52 z rider? I have a 5x10 trailer trailer and will be getting a rider soon, don't think they will fit in the 5x10 so I'm thinking 6x12 is best bet. I don't want to go much bigger.

I had a 6.5 x 12 last year with a 44" toro walk behind and a 62" toro z turn and kept bumping and banging them together while loading and unloading. You can grow out of atrailer real quick. I bought a 16 footer for this year and like it much better, hate to tear up expensive equipment.

You might be able to fit everything into the 5X10. I would try to fit everything on the trailer you have now. Back the ZTR on first all the way to the front, then back the WB up against the front of the ZTR. I know that my 61" Ferris and 48" Exmark WB will fit on a 6X12 with room left over.

I had a 6x12 with a 60in z and a 37in wb. The only way I could get it to fit was to put the wb on first with my 21, then my z. Problem is that I use my wb more. If I did it the other way, I had to lift my 21 onto my 37. I got rid of it and bought a 16 footer that is 6.5' wide.,

The trailer I think I will get is 6'4'' by 12. I only have one or two lawns that I use the 21 in trim mower on so I'll toss that in the back of the truck. The trailer is going for $1099 and I think I can get 700-750 for my 5x10. This way I'll have some bucks left for a new Z!
