Was looking at my equipment setup the other day and thinking of all the people in my area that are getting into the business and started thinking that there may be a market for custom lawn trailers. Have you ever wished you had something different but didn't. Throw some ideas at me. Not just the plain old boxes and racks, let's get creative. What would work for you best? how could something be made better to make it easier to use? C'mon guys I know you have ideas floating around in your heads. Let's hear them.:dizzy:

Well, a couple simple ideas, nothing new though.

1. Side gate/ramps.

2. A spring on the gate hinge to aid in lifting/lowering gate. Not the garage spring that mounts to the top rail, but a small spring that mounts where the hinges are. Not sure if there's a name for them or not. I've sen pics of them though on other trailers.

3. Custom widths. I for one back my trailer into a garage. I currently have a 5'x10'. I need something bigger. But I can only go longer, not wider. The next width available is 6.5'. Once you add in wheel wells, it's to wide to fit through the door by a couple inches.
So I'd like a plain old 6' wide trailer (13 or 14' length), this will just squeeze through.

A faster way to tie down. I get sick of ratchet straps.

20ft not 16ft
5ft or 6ft sides
depending on deck height
my thoughts
