It's doing great. Haven't used it much because I got it at the end of the season. Only has 5 hrs on it. By may 12 I will have my provisional license.

Is that Explorer pink? lol

Looks good. Can't wait till i can start loading up. Snow needs to melt and the ground is soggy.

Strap 'em mowers down. Fast Straps would be good. Cost about $25 a pair.

I have some ratchet ties that was just for the picture.

I plan on having a Ford F-150 by the end of the year. If things go as planed.

Nice clean equipment. I also have a 6x12 w/ rear and side gate, I love it. Keep up the good work!

Way to go!! love that side gate, keep us updated as to how you are liking the trailer! btw, did you get it with brakes on the axle?

Also, i can't tell for sure if they are or not, but, cross your safety chains on your trailer so they act as a sling for if the trailer tounge comes off and falls down.

looks great man! now all you need is some racks and you'll be all set! keep up the good work.

mcwlandscaping: No the chains are not crossed I never thought of that. good idea. No breaks the truck did fine and the trailer tracked perfectly at 55+ mph

TWUllc: check your PM

That small of a trailer doesnt have any need for brakes as long as you dont plan on pulling it loaded down with a small car or somthing strange. Nice trailer, dont see too many around here that size with the side gate.

03-11-2007, 11:08 AM
Congrats on the new trailer! How wide is the side gate?

03-11-2007, 11:36 AM
well good luck! hope you get the truck!

The side gate is 48". Plenty for my Quick 36

Nice trailer and equipment. I just put some Trimmer Trap racks on my 6.5/12 trailer. They are VERY nice, but also extremely expensive. They are worth it though in my opinion due to the ease of operation and the trimmers being secure.

Nice trailer!

not trying to be negative here, but isn't 2k a bit high for that size trailer? I mean around here even with the side gate that trailer would go for no more than 1200. nice trailer, I just hope you didn't overpay. IN comparison, my 18ft with lockable basket, trimmer racks, new tires and brakes didn't even cost 2k brand new four years ago.

Hitch was 360 w wiring.
DMV was 80.
+ tax and two locks.
Just under 2000.

oh ok, so you had to have a hitch installed on the explorer? that makes a little more sense on the price. not bad kid. not bad at all. like I said, not trying to sound negative, just thought it sounded high.

Nice trailer!!! Oh, and nice Cub by the way. When are you putting foglights on yours?

I think I'll be buying a 6x10 Enclosed soon

I'm liking the side gate too! With some racks that thing will look sweet
