I was having the same questions that you have. I went with a 6 x 12 just wide enough to get it on with a little space on each side. I looked at some 6 x 10's it should fit on one. But I just got the 12' no diff in price to speak of and you get a little space on the back of the trailer to put something. You cant ever have to big of a trailer.

Solid point the ones ive been looking at have a little bit of a price difference not much so i might just go with the 6x12

In my area 6'4" width trailers are very common and price wise are usually very close to the same. That is what I got, just in case I wound up going with a slightly wider SXS than the Wolverine or got wider tires/wheel spacers in the future. I think I paid $1,060+tax for mine and the regular 6 X 12 was only $1,030. It was less than $50 difference for those 2 more inches on each side.

We have a 5.5' x 10' and it works fine. Very little "room to grow" though, and I would definitely NOT go any smaller.

One thing I considered. Depending on what your using to tow I went with 12. Almost 14 to get a quad on too.

Point is the 10 & 12 are likely close in price. You have more room to balance the load on a 12.. On a 10ft your basically stuck on however it goes on.. So if it's putting more weight on the tongue you can't back it up to adjust and balance the load. Long term you will be happier with a 12 ft.

The one I ended up buying is 6x14, but if I was shopping around for one, I wouldn't go smaller than 6x12 to have that extra room to move it around and get it in the right place.

I have a custom made 7' wide x 7' tall x 16' long enclosed trailer. Living in Michigan we can get a lot of salt in the winter which is not good for my large financial investment. It really grabs the wind though when I tow it. Having a diesel really helps.

Exactly this.

I borrowed my friends 6x10 to get mine home and it had very little room between the fold up ramp and the rear of the machine. I bought a 12' the following weekend. Once I balanced the machine on the trailer I put a small stripe of white paint on my rocker and a small stripe on the trailer rail so I know where to stop. Also keeps me from having to readjust my tie down straps every time since I'm putting it back in the same spot.

also, you got room for a deer or a large cooler if you need.

I got a 6x12, fits perfect, my only regret is not getting a double axle
Once you have a tandem axle trailer you'll never go back to a single, they carry loads soooo much smoother. I use a 8.5'x16' plus 2' V front snowmobile trailer with tandem axles.
