Well, the old 5.000001' x7' trailer was getting a bit too small. It's a 6x12 United. Thought we got a decent deal at $3,000. I was pretty excited about the super z's "new home" and wanted to give you guys a peek. Nothing real fancy, but I'm hoping to get some magnets this winter for it.

Nice Dude!
I was thinking of getting one when I upgrade my truck next year. Do you think it would hold a 36" WB and a 50" ZTR?

Definantly, it's actually something like 12'5" inside and I've almost got another 6x6 area of free space, and would someday like to fill that with a 36. Good luck, with your future purchases.

Thanks, around the sides, it's a little tighter than I'd like it, but it's pretty smooth loading and unloading w/ United's wider than usual ramps and door openings. Not too bad overall though.

It's 5'6" at the rear door and 6'2" inside. It seems like I had to duck in all of the other trailers:help: . I was pleased to find a brand with out 3' doors and a 4' inside .

Thanks in advance for the shirt,I gotta send you a t shirt also. I basically needed the jrco out of my shop, since im moving out of it in 2 weeks. It could use a little touch up paint but other wise its in good working order. Thanks, and congrats on the new trailer!

Its all gone. Truck,trailer,stander. Im trying to sell my lesco and im keeping my 36''.

Nate: I might still have some old trimmer racks. I could fab up a bracket to possibly fit in the enclosed trailer if your interested.

That's all there is. I don't have anything else to put in there(who in there right ming think of trimming close to objects, or even imagine of blowing off a sidewalk or driveway anyways :confused: sheesh!) :laugh: :laugh:

This winter I'm going to make some trimmer racks and maybe a tounge-tool-box so I can take advantage of the space I've got.

Yea, aluminum magnets are very expensive, youll have to call NASA to get some, i think they charge my the square milimeter. Just curious why such a small one, what do you tow it with, That jeep one may assume. What is the GVWR on the trailer.

Thank you for pointing that out, what method would you say is the best value when it comes to putting a logo and a little info on the side of an enclosed?
Who knows:dizzy:
:laugh: They're got stickers and things on e-bay that sell for 99 cents with a shipping charge of $12.95 *trucewhiteflag*

Thanks for the info on the magnets. Pa thought that a 6x12 would be sufficient with the operation im running, which should be alright (I managed earlier with a 5x7 hommade trailer that barely fit the z.)As of right now we tow it with a Dodge Dakota SLT, but I hope to purchse a truck of my own once I get my liscense, nothing spectacular, something with a hitch.The GVWR on the trailer is rated at 1950 w/ a 2990# axle, but we got the 3500# rubber torsion so I guess that puts it somewhere around 2500#,.

Or Mercury Mountaineer
You're correct, my brother got it late this summer. I believe it's a 97' w/ a v8 5.4? litre engine. Took it down into Iowa to pick up the trailer instead of the dodge -with 3 guys it was a bit more comfortable.

vinyl lettering is probably the cheapest and most effectove way of lettering your trailer. Id love to have an enclosed, nice to keept everything dry all the time, and its nice for working on equipment. My props to you.

Yeah he should have bought a 20 footer so he could look cool.:rolleyes: It looks to me like he has an efficient set-up that will git-r-done.

I installed no-slip strips on the ramp of my enclosed trailer because there were times when the wheels would just spin on the ramp. I ran them up the length of the ramp and glued them down with a spray epoxy. Now when it is muddy or raining my mower goes up the ramp with ease.

I would just do vinyl. You should be able to get it for your trailer for under $250.

Lawnworks: I wasnt nocking his trailer, I was just supprised that a Z will fit in that.

Good lookin' trailer! Post some pics when you get all the racks in. Also, what kind of Dakota are you going to pull it with?

Thanks for all the replies, especially about the lettering, that should do me some good.

Parkee- I think I'll give the no-slip strips a shot this winter.

Lawn enforcer- Hasn't been pulled much to date, but next spring it'll probably be pulled by a 4wd 95' dodge dakota SLT w/ a 5.2 litre V8 engine most of the time.
