Agreed. My one utility trailer is 6x10 and being 6 ft wide + even wider with fenders, its tires have accidently "scrubbed" the road curbs a few times. Ouch! If I had to do it again, I'd buy a 5 x 9 landscape / utility trailer instead.

For flooring, I like to use 2x6 boards. When I want to secure something in my trailer, I simply "screw down" some steel ring anchors into these boards, then use ratchet straps - to suck the items tight to the floor. And, a 5x9 trailer would still leave 6" (or so) around the item - like 4x8 sheets being sucked down (to the floor).

Hope this helps...
