Here's a better view of the setup on the trailer. I took out the mesh flooring after it began to sag inbetween the braces, and replaced it with 2X8's. .

Very nice set up for just starting out.
I started with a 5x10 trailer from lowes. Cost me about $800 w/wooden floor. I pulled it with a Yellow Ford Escape. I got laughed at alot but I was in and out faster then most in my area. I started taking others accounts, not by low balling but by quality/speed of work. With my 5x10 trailer and a huge tarp I could fit 1.5 yards of mulch in it and with the trailer being low, unloading wheel barrow full loads was a piece of cake. No bending down to scoop mulch from the ground ect. I just drove on their property and stop by each bed. Filled them and kept going. Later mowed the lawn and all SUV/Trailer tracks where gone.
