just type in something in the reply box, go to the bottom of the page, click on manage attachments. That will open a box, click on browse, when you find the picture, click upload. Hope that helps.

Rod,

I saw a trailer last month with something neet. They took a cargo net that you would use to hold something down in the bed of a truck and attached it to the ceiling of the trailer. They had all sorts of things in it. I thought it was a cool setup to carry stuff out of the way. Just a thought.

Trap door in the floor so when the mowers are in there the employees won't know. When they are out working you have access. You can also put the plasma tv on the ceiling so you can look at it while you are stretching out working on your business model....

Rod,
awesome set up. here though, you'd have to park a half mile from the actually account to find a parking spot to fit that baby!

i was so happy with my new set up, 6x12, and new pick up... after seeing that set up you have, i feel like i'm from the ghetto! :D

Thanks Td...nope, that's the same 95 psd I drove to your place last March for lunch. The one I got last November or so is a a gasser, F-250 HD that I told ya bout. And I still have my 99 PSD. Don't know why...I just love that 95 in the pic with my new trailer (red on red). Maybe cause it was christened properly LOL!

Great rig! If I had a rig like that, and put a cargo net in there too, I would carry way too much stuff. If I had a large crew, it'd be ideal.
Hey, where's the bathroom gonna be?

On a side note, I saw a couple of people in this thread using one of my favorite phrases, if you're gonna use my lines, be careful, they can sometimes get you in trouble;

Always better to be a smartazz than a dumbazz.............

Very nice rig Rod. I have a red Dodge Ram 1500 4WD, and I have been considering buying an enclosed tralier. I looked at a red one today. I love the all red look. Very eye-catching.

BTW, did you make the trimmer racks and the tool racks yourself?
