What Kind of Enclosed Trailer

Just wondering what style enclosed trailer was the most popular choice for lawn maintenace and small landscpaing equipment like a skid loader. I have researched enclosed trailers and there are a lot of styles to choose from, kinda intimidating.

It all depends on how much space you need. Some guys can get by with a 6x12 while others will need a 8x20. I am currently looking for a typical car hauler package, 8x20, which has 2-#3500 axles, ramp door, and interior lighting. Best price I have found is $4,600.00 to my local dealer (in WI). Otherwise I can pick it up in Indiana for 4,200.00. I have run a 16' landscape trailer up until now but I do mostly maintenance. I will be buying commercial loadhandler as well, which I only need for leaves.
