My next trailer is just going to be a regular open landscape trailer. When I make enough $$ I want to get a nice enclosed trailer. I like the idea of a tandem axle. The ones that I am looking at are 8.5 X 16. Have you guys found that it's better to buy a bigger trailer right from the start rather than upgrade at a later time? I think a 16 would be plenty for a while. Though I may be tempted to buy an 18. Even if it's not really that practical, i like trailers. Always have, always will. When I was 14 I could back up my neighbours 5th wheel better than him SAULS PS will a 1/2 ton 6 cyl comfortable tow a 16?
