I'll never go back to an open trailer, there is no way to put this much stuff and keep it secure and out of the elements. I reinforced the bottom of wall with a 5/4 x 6 deck board to keep riders and stuff from busting up the lower wall (last trailer was a learning curve). ... and I still have about 4' between mowers to access trimmers, all works well, easy access.

J-thomas has a nice 3 trimmer rack that i have in my trailer and it was around 100 no pins or anything it has a center bar that slides up and down to keep them locked in place.

Ya your trailer looks great! Thats' not a bad idea and much more cost efficient. Those are bicycle hooks right? So its important to stain and paint? I heard that before, so I should definitely get that done soon. As of right now my trailer size should suit my needs, but I can see how I will need something larger within the next few years.

Another option in enclosed trailer prep work would be to get a rino liner sprayed in on the floor and slightly up the walls. This makes it a lot easier to clean out and keep the wood solid. good traction too.

Go to your local hardware store (Lowes, Menards, Home Depot), and you can get a paint with a gritty surface that also seals the floor. Lots .... LOTS cheaper then Line-X or other liner spray and works almost as well. My truck is a short bed (6' bed) ... but my trailer is 18' long ... big difference in price in a spray in liner.

Good point though ... it is a great idea to seal the floor and part way up the walls. Put some 5/4 decking boards around the base of the walls to protect from the equipment running into them (and it will) ... and then apply the sealant.

I used porch paint on my enclosed trailer floor. It has the grit in it and comes in gray. The only problem is if you spill fuel it will eat the paint.
