    Trying to figure out what size trailer I need. Don't need anything too big, but don't want anything too small either. Just big enough so that I can haul a ztr and anything else I need. All information would be much appreciated.

    If its an open get a 7x16', with 3' mesh sides. If you wanted an enclosed a 7x14' is nice and manageable.

    i agree with the 7x16..
    first larger trailer i bought 15 years ago and i am just retiring it this year.
    was awesome.. also i had the 2' expanded metal sides and loved them.

    I would go with nothing smaller than a 6x12 it takes 12 ft of trailer to get a walkbehind and a Z on it. 16 foot is the best open trailer I think, I have both trailers
