    No! Going to be to small, depending on the brands and size. Just ask the dealer for dimensions and add it all together.

    That might work, but I would definitely go with the 14'. You will run out of room fast and a little wiggle room is better than none.

    A 6'X12" will fit a large Z plus a 36" & 21" walk mower. You will need to park the walk mowers towards the front of the trailer with the handles pointing towards the back.

    WOW ! Will be that tight? Should I just get a 14' trailer ? The only reason I wanted to get a smaller one (if it would work) is so I could park it easily garage.

    It's the same problem I had...after looking at the 14 footers, I decided on a 16 footer because it was less then $100 more for the 16' vs. the 14'....JMO

    I wanted a 12 foot single axle for one 60", but ended up with a 14 foot. Its not that much difference in pulling and there is a lot of floor space, go bigger!
