6x12 would be a nice res trailer. Another considered is if you want to stand up in the inside. BTW I have side door with ramp backs on both of mine and wouldn't have any different. Mainly wood buildins for storage and I recommend an epoxy coat on the floor before anything!

I love trailers but sometimes it's such a pain dealing with them. Parking them. Hooking and unhooking etc.
mines only a 5x8. Hard to imagine driving a 7x16 around the city.
I could definitely see upgrading to a 6x12 tho. The 5x8 fills up real fast.

My 6x12 isn't too bad. You certainly have to be strategic about getting gas and where to park. But it sure beats unloading at the end of a day because of rain or worrying about theft.

Ok....I pulled the trigger and picked up a new 5x8. See how it goes. Bought a graco 9.5 hvlp last week. I sure hope winter stays busy!

That trailer I went to look at yesterday was already sold. This guy usually has a bunch of trailers he sells but this snow has kept him from having many in stock. All are used but in good shape.

One thing I did to mine was add two c channels on the underside to work as track and I keep a bakers Scaffold plank in it. It forms a step and a ramp for pumps and so on. I ran a bolt latch down in to the plank to hold it. Lost one in a snow storm once.

That's a great idea. Think I'll try that. Do you have a pic of where you attached the bolt latch?

I don't remember how I did it. But can guess. I have had this trailer for a long time. I took some 3" channel and drilled through it so I could transfer the holes. C clamp the channel to the floor joist and drill the floor joist. Then bolted it on. If you ship me a email I will shot you a photo. But all you will see is snow😃 and a step. You couldn't pay me enough money to get any underneath shots. All most 2 ' of snow on the ground.

It might have been 2" channel and fits petty tie to the underside of the trailer. My baker's pushes all of the way up to where it hits the axle. I would now feel lost with out the step.
