I am looking into getting my enclosed trailer lettered and I was wondering what everyone paid to get their enclosed trailers done? Do any of yall have any pictures ?

How much buisness do you think you get from advertising on your trailer?

I have a 24' enclosed and got a Quote of $2,500 to have it lettered up, Thats for both sides and the back ramp door.

Ours are 18s & 20s. The lettering costs $180 per trailer, but we put it on ourselves. Both sides and rear ramp. 5 colors. Here is a pic before it was complete, but you can get an idea. There is another logo that goes in the space above the fender.

Here is a couple pics of mine. Its a 14' and I cam up with the sceme and had a graphics company makw and install. Took one day and ran just under $1700. I get business all the time just off the trailer. I don't care if I'm running to Wal-Mart for toilet paper the trailer goes with me. A rolling bil board if you will.

cutnlawns, is that all vinyl? Id love to get a picture or something on the side with the company name on it in all full color. I assumed theyd print these up and stick them on or airbrush them somehow?

Premier landscaping, how is it driving a 20ft enclosed trailer around? i take a 16ft open trailer around and that seems big sometimes, many lawn areas, i cant even take a trailer in NJ, some dead end roads in developments and such just have a dead end and a driveway, i could see it as a nightmare with any trailer. Have to use just my pickup and ramps for those lawns to make it easier. Im looking primarily at a 20ft enclosed Haulmark for next season.. Id go for the 24ft since its only $250 more but thats just too long i feel for lawn service.

its hard sometimes. but most the time its cake. sometimes I wish it was smaller, but in the long run, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages

Yes it is all vinyl. Basically all the design was done in Photoshop then they printed it to make the big decals. Took about 1/2 day to do it all.

I think that if you are going with a 20ft, the extra 4ft is not really that much, its going to be a big trailer regardless. I would go for the extra 4ft because you never know if your going to expand, and may outgrow the 20ft. I have a 24ft enclosed and don't have any problems maneuvering it around town, but you do have to be careful. I would go for the extra 4ft if you are going to be pulling it and not an employee.

Cool , well i do Corel Draw so i could probably get the design done myself, what sort of vinyl printer prints that out? Id have to see if my job has one at any of the locations. :)

Thanks, id rather get the 24' as it will most likely double as a car trailer "sometimes" or if im taking the car to ohio or somewhere for a race. I already have an open trailer for that though but this would be nicer, 18ft the car would fit, 20ft it has a little more room, 22ft is nice and 24' you have a good 6' in front of the car which is good workroom :) 16ft i think is easiest to drive around in NJ area though for lawns but i may just go big and plan to not take it to lawns i know it wont fit, or ill find another road i can pull up and pull away with it and just have to drive farther on the mower etc to get to the lawns. thanks

I use Corel Draw all the time to put things together so you should not have a problem. As far as the printer your looking at a $20K+ plotter to do the trick and the material is what costs you. I know the guys that printed mine the roll of material was $5K alone!

Check your local area for vinyl graphics shops that do "digital wraps" and if you do the basic graphic design it shouldn't cost too much.

Cool, well im not HP certified or anything but work on and setup a ton of them usually. I have access to a HP 1055cm and a brand new 42" HP 5000 model with 6 color dye ink. Only papers are used on it but ive seen brochures that look like some sort of weather resistant stuff. Plus the dye doesnt fade like your normal ink jet ink. How much is the paper per roll or foot if its 5k for the vinyl thats insane!

Any clue of what type of media is used for this? or something very customized? HP has to make it lol Theyre all expensive, im guessing the two-view cling media or polypropylene? Which color trailer would work best, black trailer/background with clear film media or white with white background?

Thanks CutNLawns for sharing those photos of your setup, one of the sharpest rigs I've seen. I would say you get lots of recognition with it???

I have a truck question: Is that a diesel or gas HD? I am in the market for a "new" probably used, truck and have thought about a diesel. If yours is not a diesel have you regretted not buying one?

Whichever fuel type you have how does the trailer tow? Any suggestions or pointers I would appreciate. Thanks in advance for reply.
