    If you think you need a 10' trailer, buy a 14'or 16'. That way you'll have room to expand in the future. Besides there's not much cost difference in 10' to 16'.

    Trust me and go with the bigger one you will almost always run out of room and be looking for more. Like stated above the cost between the 10' and the 16' isnt all that great so i would recommend the 16'.

    I started with a 6x10 also,I bought an 18 foot about a year later.
  6. I bought a 16 ft trailer when I started out. In 1999 I traded it in an 18 footer, wish at times I had gotten a 20. Go with the next size up, at least 14 ft. It is easier to back a longer trailer, or least it is for me.

    Ive got a Hawgwild 14 foot and if my jobs would alow i would get a 16 or18 but many of my clients have gated driveways and i only have around 8" clearence on alot of them. Plus these are very wealthy and great paying clients, so i don't want to lose them. So ive just adjusted by putting more smaller equip in truck bed. I can still get my 62ZTR 52" Walkbehind and 2 trimm mowers on the 14 with alittle room. Marks Mowing Service
