Default Pot and MLT cooler upgrades

I am thinking about upgrading my HLT. It is not really big enough for doing 5 gallon batches, but I get away with using another pot. I looking to get a big HLT for 5 gallon and possibly 10 gallon. I have a keggle for the boil and 10 gallon mash cooler setup. Any recommendations on HLT minimum size for 10 gallon batches

If you heat your strike and sparge water at the same time in your HLT, I'd recommend a 20 gallon HLT.
