Here's my 5x8 "starter trailer".
As it looked when I bought it...
Primed and repainted all the metal and painted the plywood on the inside black...
I wanted sides just a little higher and rather than replacing the existing wood (it was ugly, but rock-solid), I decided to "re-skin" the exterior. I applied some waterproofing deck stain I had left over...
It looks pretty tiny when I stand back and look at it. I'd love
to have a 16' trailer, but I simply don't have room for one. I'm limited to a ten, maybe twelve footer max. This should do OK for another year or so though.
It may not be the nicest trailer, but I think I did a pretty good job of polishing a turd and it works for me, so I can't complain.
Nice set up. What is that device on the left handle on your snapper? Looks like some kind of lock box? I got one and don't have that thingee whatever it is.
