My new trailer for this season is a 6' X 10' tandem axle trailer with 20" sides and brakes on 1 axle. It has a spring assisted mesh fold down tailgate, rubber mounted lights, 3500lb axles and tongue jack with wheels. I mounted a steel diamond plate platform to the tongue to secure my front storage box too. The storage box is 24" X 48" and is lockable, I keep my fuel containers, oil, blower, bungee cords, tools, ratchet straps and safety equipment in there. I also purchased a 2 place Extreme trimmer rack which is awesome.
Being a 1 man show I like to keep everything organized and secure. Most of the customers I have own upscale homes so I like to keep a professional appearance. Still have some work to do on the new trailer but with lots of snow on the ground here I still have plenty of time.

For my tow vehicle I will be using my trusty old Avalanche, this has been a great truck for me and has never let me down. What I like about this truck is the box is easily locked and my tools are out of site and secure. I realize it's not a heavy duty truck but if you are only cutting grass and hauling mulch from time to time it does the job.

Your trailer setup looks sickk. How do you like the Xtreme racks so far?

The Extreme rack just arrived today and I just installed it on the trailer. Still need to make some final adjustments. Now I can see why they are so highly recommended, great design and almost impossible for thieves to take your stuff. Instead of mounting it to the top rail I used the enclosed trailer mounts and bolted it right to the side of my trailer, it's rock solid now!

I usually don't like Avalanches but that truck is sick.
