New Enclosed Trailer Setup

Hey guys I am new to this site but have been in the business for several years now. Just to give you a brief summary of myself, I am currently 21 working part time and going to school full time (only 1 year left of college). Once I graduate I plan on growing my business and making it my full time job. Like many of you, I have been cutting grass since I could push a lawn mower (around the age of 10). When I turned 16 and got a truck I would spend either all day Saturday or Sunday doing yards (neighbors, my Dad's rental properties, my Dad's office, etc.). Once I graduated high school and no longer has major time commitments with sports (football & baseball) I began to pick up a few more accounts. Slowly but surely I have continued to try and grown little by little....so that's my story.

After having my trailer (with all of my equipment on it) stolen the day before Thanksgiving I decided to move to an enclosed trailer. I have replaced now replaced all of my equipment and finally finished getting my trailer setup the way I want it and just thought I'd share a few pics. Please let me know what you guys think and offer up any suggestions on how I could improve my setup.

Exterior Pictures

Here are a few pictures of the outside of the trailer. My favorite part of the trailer is the cage on the front. It was a little bit of a headache to get it welded on but it turned out great.

Very nice setup. Like the trimmer wall brackets. I would probably just support the underside of the wall cabinet. You can see the top of the cabinet pulling down just a bit .Could be an illusion .A 2x4 across bottom wall to wall might be a good option. Good idea on locking up fuel , my brother in law just lost a few tanks. Very nice trailer.

Thanks for the tip. The cabinets were in there when I bought the trailer so I haven't really fooled with them too much. I don't plan on having anything heavy in there for now so hopefully I'll be able to get by how they are.
