Here's my 5x8 "starter trailer".








As it looked when I bought it...




Primed and repainted all the metal and painted the plywood on the inside black...




I wanted sides just a little higher and rather than replacing the existing wood (it was ugly, but rock-solid), I decided to "re-skin" the exterior. I applied some waterproofing deck stain I had left over...


















It looks pretty tiny when I stand back and look at it. I'd love to have a 16' trailer, but I simply don't have room for one. I'm limited to a ten, maybe twelve footer max. This should do OK for another year or so though.
It may not be the nicest trailer, but I think I did a pretty good job of polishing a turd and it works for me, so I can't complain.

Nice set up. What is that device on the left handle on your snapper? Looks like some kind of lock box? I got one and don't have that thingee whatever it is.

Thanks. Nothing fancy, but it works for me until I get a larger trailer.

Not sure what you mean about the mower. It's a Ferris - here's a thread on it with lots of pics for your viewing pleasure...

What kind of trailer is that?

Vinnie,
This trailer is manufactured here in Fresno, CA and has been for many years. The back is used for green-waste and lifts for dumping. The front half of coarse is used for storage. This style is very popular here and comes in many different configurations. I am having some work done on it and will post some pics when I pick it up. Here in the Fresno area we have 4 companies that recycle green-waste. For a trailer up to 8ft. in length (load area) we pay
$ 20.00 per load for dumping.

DOT loves this trailer and so does the farmer in DE that I just sold it to.



My favorite dumper (don't comment on having just straps as tie downs...was going to the farm behind us):
