Is your trailer all custom built? Looks great. The tailgate looks like it has a welded extention to make it longer.

Yea that chevy is sweet. Although it drinks too much gas! The trailer is pretty much custom. I built the gate to small and extended it. I welded the rails in the back. Installed my own one piece locking trimmer rack, designed by my dad and i. I built my cage in the front and installed a curb access door on it . And then put the gate lift on. And painted the whole trailer black. So i would say its custom built to my needs!

What did you paint your trailer with.

i bought black gloss paint from car quest. it was omni paint. i had to mix it with all this other stuff. All i remember is it took a long time to paint and i barely could figure out my dads spray guns.

omni paint is the cheapest paint. but everyone told me it is just as good as the name brands! i believe all the materials came to 130.00$

Where do you dump your clippings?? Can you mow and bag in wet grass without clogging?? Have you ever had an issue with clogging?? Do you change decks on the walker for side discharge??

haha do they clog? let me tell you about clogging.... i have a green hand pretty much all summer! only in july does it not rain much. other wise im clogging.. i normally dump on site. sometimes i make a dump run. some people call me up and want clipping for their horses. other then that i love my walkers. i want to install the bigger blower and see if that helps.
