well this spring i bought a 5x10 for 600$(had trade ins). used it all summer, but was frustrated that i couldnt fit what i wanted to on it. So on a whim i stopped to talk to the guy i bought it from to look over his selection. Well for 250 more dollars i drove off with a 6.5x12 single axle trailer. 15" tires wood floor mesh gate. Once i get used to the size it is going to be nice. A little overkill for most of the time since i usually just haul a walk behind, but when i want to haul another lawn tractor or walk behind, it will be nice.. Not to mention it will get used for hauling scarp metal, trash mulch what ever.. So you all were right the bigger the better.. later..
