Ideal utility trailer?

Postby chrisgerman1983 [OP] » June 22nd 2014, 6:35pm

I am purchasing an enclosed utility trailer. What size would be best to tow behind my astro? It will not usually have very much weight in it, just some tools and a work bench. I would like a 16ft tandem axle, Would this be a reasonable size to tow? Thanks in advance :thumbup:

The big thing is probably going to be wind resistance, so if you have a trailer that is the same height/width or slightly less, that is going to be your best bet as being easier to tow. Just watch your weight because it doesn't take long, it adds up quickly.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore them & go about your business.
