Default Trailer Question

I'm looking for a trailer again, new or used, but must be in good shape w/brakes on both axles.
Here's my question: Which would be better, 7000lbs or a 10,000lbs? My Jeep was about 3850lbs stock . Add in all the extras, suspension, bumpers,wheels and tires, skid plates, winch,rocker guards, and probly more down the road, advanced rollcage(a must),tube fenders, crusher corners w/tube fenders,larger axles (D60's or similar) and on and on and on. This thing could end up weighing 5000lbs or more. With the weight of the trailer, that's right at the spec. limit of the trailer. So should I hold out for a 10,000lbs one or go with the 7000lbs trailer? It seems like alot of people on here use the 7000lbs trailer size. So what do you guys and gals think. I don't want to have to upgrade a couple of years down the road to a heavier duty trailer.

Thanks for your help,
Rick
