Might think about the high sides it makes getting onto/off the trailer to get stuff difficult.....hate to open gate every time. But for security it is nice and it looks like quality work..

Very nice work. I want a trailer like that someday with the high expanded metal sides.

just curious what are you paying for expanded mesh and what size are you using. Also what did you use for paint, rattle can, or paint gun setup??

4 sheets of 4'x10' were about $300, and it was painted with a airless paint gun setup, with gloss black enamel

Tell him to lock that up. Around here, if that was left out in the open unlocked like that, it'd be stolen in a heartbeat.

Looks very nice! You did a wonderful job. What kind of welder did you use?

Looks great...

Just wondering, why do the sides angle down at the rear. I don't see a dovetail. Anyway, great job!

oh the angle makes the sides even with the back ramp, and it looks good

Oh I see...

You're right, I guess it would look odd if the sides were higher than the tailgate. Good job!
