Why 24' that is one big trailer to drive around town. 18' is pretty big but tow-able

I use an 18' enclosed and an considering by a small one due to troubles of parking at properties and also the gas it uses to tow around. Don't get me wrong it is nice to have everything with you and secured but not every job needs all my equipment.

What are you starting with?

I am starting with a brand new apple dock and ipad 2 I plan on trading for a project horse trailer fix it (my dad turned the garage into a paint booth) and trade it for a camper and then trade the camper for the trailer.

Why such a big trailer
Because I'm not paying for it I'm tradeing up so while I'm at it I should go big my marching band has a trailer that is eighteen feet long and I have towed it several times I don't feel a extra six feet will matter and I still have my other trailer until I get more equipment it wil act as a shed

To the others don't thwart my ideas treat me as an adult

Why do you think you need suck a large trailer? I do the same thing as you (lawn care) I have 2 1500's a 5x10 open trailer, and a 7X14 enclosed trailer. All of this works great for me. I dont understand why you need such a big trailer, all its going to do is cause you problems. What happens when your in a tight area and you have a huge trailer, you need to turn around, tight turns, and round abouts.


Good luck, have fun with that bus, if you can even "trade up" to it.

I can fit 3 ztrs and 2 push mowers on a 6.5x16 ft trailer. When I only need one or to pull the mini skid I use a 5x10. I had 2 properties where you couldnt park or put a trailer anywhere. I had to drop a guy off and have him drive there and pick him up.

Theres just no point to having a trailer that big. Youll be limited to where you can go. The only way I would see a use for it is if you had 2 0r 3 crews and no storage space. So you can put everything away at the end of the night.

24' is nearly wide as my garage. 24' is wider then a normal road.

Well if al goes well I will have a 24ft trailer by Sunday the tradeing isn't like I planned but I have a guy who seen my ad for the boat and wants to trade for the trailer. The boat is worth 2500 and isn't running and his trailer I worth 4k if he sent me the most recent pics. I'm tradeing the boat because we have been sitting on it for years and we want to get rid of it at the first chance we get if 24ft is to big I can down grade and get a little cash

whats gvwr? I seen a few 24s and theyre only 10k. It seems low for a trailer that size. I did some looking around too. The only 24s I see are race car trailers.
