Post your trailer setup here

Hey all, I've been going thread to thread looking at ideas for setting my rig up in better more efficient ways.
I figured why not ask people to proudly post trailer setups on one thread.
I'll start off with a pic from last year.
I've made a few changes but the trailer is still in the garage. I'll post the pic from the garage and then when it's out I'll get a better one.

I look forward to seeing everyone's awesome rigs!

I like these threads, hopefully more people will post as we approach spring. Since these pics i have added another turf tracer (48") another br600 and new tires

Everything is in storage now, will have updated pics in spring.

I only carry what I need every day on the trailer, no extra crap to get "lost" that I only use every once in a while.

Truitt Lawn, I like your sign on the rear gate. Do you notice any extra drag from it blocking the air flow? I always worry about that which is why I haven't done a sign yet.

Rig looks good too btw!

Sweet setup dude. Very efficient.

What did you attatch the bottom of the weedeater racks to?

As far as the sign is concerned, no I have not noticed any drag or anything. I designed and bought it from a website called builds sign.com it's rather inexpensive especially when you catch the. Having a sale.

Just for kicks and giggles here's my other trailer

Ok, thanks for the tip. I am going to look into that for sure. That's a sweet truck pulling your dump trailer! I remember seeing that in your thread a while back.

For the racks I used the brackets for an enclosed trailer and bolted them to the frame rail where it holds in the floor boards. It's hard to describe I will post a pic tonight when I get home so you can see it better.
