    Hi I was wondering if i could get some feed back regarding enclosed trailer sizing. I am looking at a 7x14 enclosed trailer and wondering if a 60" ztn ,48"wb and 21" push along with other tools and such will fit in a 7x14.This would be my 1st enclosed trailer. Thank you,john

    As I don't have this scenerio I am not qualified to answer, but I think that you should give yourself the extra 2' if you can and get a 7x16 just in case. It will undoubtedly come in handy some time.

    It should fit fine but you may want to line up your equipment as you would park it in the trailer and measure.

    I have a 7x16 and have 2 60 Z and a 21 in push mower. My guess is that you would be ok. I do recomend the 7x16, as you would have room to grow.

    Don’t buy anything less then a 16 foot trailer or your going to be upset the following year when you have to replace your small trailer
