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.

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.
