Best size trailer?

    Guys, opinions on trailer size? I'm looking at a 6 x 12 and a 7 x 14. My F350 will pull either. I have a 35%, a 40% and will probably add another similar someday. That smaller single axle would be a lot easier to pull. Thanks

    If you've got room to park it, I'd say there's no such thing as too much trailer...

    I have a 6 x 13 V-Nose, and I dont need the width, but I could use a little more length.

    But at Swope said, if I had a bigger trailer I could fill that one too and want more room!

  6. I've got a 6x12 v nose and it works great. 2 40% on the floor and everything on the shelf above.

  7. F350 will pull a house. So as the others have said, if you have the room...Bigger is Better! Just a matter of shopping around for the best deal.

  8. Got a 6x12 vnose and like it. My trailblazer with the i6 pulls it fine. I put in a mid shelf that easily holds a 30% an my son and i coud put 2 inflatable single beds on the floor. Worked well at nall last year.

  9. I have a 6x14 LOOK V-nose with dual axel, and have plenty of room for 2 35%ers and a 30%er and still have enough room I could put another 40%er in it if I ever get one.

    My 5.4L Triton Expedition pulls it like it isn't even there, and I only lose about 5 miles per gallon in mileage.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Don't know if this will help but, I bought my single axle 6x12 with extended height this past January. It is serving me well. My son and I have had 2 40%'ers and 2 35%'ers on the floor. I could have put more, however I built some cupboards up front. I plan to add a "roll out" middle shelf this coming spring. That will give me room for 3 40's on the floor, and another 40 above with room to spare for 3 35's. Now with that being said, I like my trailer and it is very easy to pull. However just as BJ said, bigger is better. Just like our planes. If you can afford it and it is not an inconvienence to store...get the bigger one. I wish I had more room, but I am learning to make do with what I have.

    Hope that helps.
