its not mine personally. I keep my stuff in the yard tht my moms offshore boat company owns. so i have free use of everything. I jus maintain the property. Her business partener also owns a heavy equipment company, so i have use of skidsteers and such!

One day i will own a place like tht

Wow that looks great. Some day I want to build myself a landscape box for my trailer, but I can never seem to find the time:cry:. Besides I need to build a trimmer rack first:dizzy:.

Nice trailer....why did you put the blower cage so high that won't be very easy to get in/out?

The storage box looks like it's right where it should be to me...?

Maybe people want to put things under them.

Very easy access.

Between being a wrapped tongue, and the way it is reinforced with that diagonal gusset, that tongue is going no where. Definitely a solid mount. One question, tough...Why did you (or they) put too short of chains on the shelf door, that don't allow it to come down level? When it is level, you can just pull the stuff out toward you, and also use it as a work shelf, as well (for refueling, etc.).

LOL. No, what I meant as "going nowhere", is that it sure isn't going to break easy.

If I were you I'd mesh those sides so you can haul mulch and dirt. Nice trailer none the less!

this only hods true with the trailers with a wrapped tongue. Trailers without, that have a ladder type frame like this, are dependent on that solid top rail for reinforcement.
This is why flatbed trailers, such as car haulers and such, all have a wrapped tongue. They don't need that top rail and ladder for structural support.
