    sounds like a real tight fit to me. any way you can test it? can you take your stuff there and see if it fits? wouldn't hurt to try.

    where in michigan are you?

    Sounds like it might work out for a while it will be tight with know room to expand.

    why don't you buy the trailer, then sell it for more money. that price seems really low if its in great shape. then put that money towards a bigger one.

    Or, if you are hesitant to make the purchase, just measure out an area on your garage floor, and come up with some different configurations to where the equipment will fit and be accessible. Just a suggestion. Also, if you're thinking a bit longer term for the smaller trailers, you can build some good organizers that will help you considerably (trimmer sideracks, tongue mounted fuelcan cages, toolboxes, shelves, etc..
