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.

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.
