Then that same year I came across a rider on craigslist that I couldn't pass on and then the trailer was full. So thats why I have decided to go up to an 18 foot this time, and hopefully it will be big enough for a while.
yeah who cares what it looks like I have seen people stuffing a 36" WB and a ZTR on one of those little 4x8 trailers they sell at home depot (gonna have to get a pic of that one come spring LOL) and I've seen people with one 48" WB on a 18' trailer. Open trailers are pretty cheap and seem to have good resale value but I'd rather just buy it once and grow into it. I'm going through the same thought process again with dump trailers I dont really need nor can I afford the biggest and heaviest one they have but if i buy the smaller one in 2 years I'll be buying the bigger one.

I know I should have gone with the 16 ft to begin with lol. I am also planning to build a leaf box on the front of the 18 ft, until I get a dump trailer or a dump truck.

Nice weather Thursday. Not so nice Friday morning did you have to put lots of sand down?

Yeah Thursday was really good because the warm weather melted all my snow piles, so now I have some more room to stack. I didn't put to much sand down. I stick to pretty much a salt/sand mix. Which is 1/4 sand and 3/4 salt. That seems to melt the crap pretty well and the sand helps a little bit for traction.
