Was out taking some pictures of my equipment today and will start a thread showing my stuff. Here are two pictures of my trailer setup. I try to keep everything in order since space is limited. Think I would like to upgrade to a larger trailer next year.

That's all fine and dandy if you are Pulling a tiny little trailer with a few tiny little mowers. And only want 23 weekly accounts.

My trailer weight's 7k+ pounds loaded down, with that said i need a big gas guzzling truck to tow it around, not some Ford ranger/Escape/Dodge neon. Then again i have roughly 4x as many accounts as you do.

That's the difference between someone who is doing this more or less for a hobby and someone trying to make a decent living doing it.

Well said, but I prefer diesel guzzling. Gas is for lawn mowers and handheld equipment! J/k
