Forum Title: Hauling stripe machine and driver?
I need some advice, I am going to get a line driver and a Graco 3900. I plan on hauling my paint and supplies mostly on the truck instead of the trailer. I will also be backing the loaded trailer into storage in between jobs. My questions is what is a reasonable size for a smaller trailer for this, and what is needed to secure the machine adequately. Seems like our roads and streets are getting rougher all the time here.

My suggestion is getting larger than you need. We started with a 5x8 then 6x12 then 71/2 x20 now 81/2x20. Is much more costly to constantly upgrade than starting out a little larger. A 16 foot is a good size you could grow into three machines a ryder and even a porta porti. A 12 foot will work but gets cramped soon. Laugh if you want but the last item is very important. I personally like the wider inside fenders as you can store a lot of stuff above and around the fender wells. Some like the outside ones for the smoother interior. As far as munevering there is little or no difference. I have pictures posted of mine you can search. Also there are some very nice tie downs on this forum you can search.

7x16 or 14. You will outgrow smaller trailers within 3 years.

I would say 6x10 is the minimum for just starting out, but 7x14 or 16 is probably best.
