New enclosed trailer

I finally bought a new 8.5 x 16 enclosed trailer. I didn't take a picture of the inside yet but the floor came painted grey. I'm not sure If I should paint the walls or not.

I have some serious thinking to do with setting this up. I have etrack coming in on Friday. I plan on using the snap rack hooks. I haven't ordered them yet but hoping the weed trimmers hooks hold the trimmers tight.

The other problem I'm facing is my leaf vac will not fit on the tail gate with this trailer. I will have to figure a way to have the leaf vac on the bed of the truck to move the vac away from the trailer.

I purchased the same trailer a couple weeks ago. Check out "Rack em" products. The hook over the top of the plywood walls.

Why'd you sell it so soon?

I don't like the trimmer rack. It looks like it takes to long grab the trimmer.

What did you pay? I paid 6,200. Mine has the 18" extended tongue.

I've had Rack'em on a enclosed trailer for over 7 years and the trimmer racks have held up and function as should, even though they have been hit and deformed my my rider's rops a couple of times. (Never broke either, just twisted it a little)
The trimmer line spool holder was a PITA.
I keep my edger on top of the trimmers and the weight of the blade and blade holder keeps the bump head end of the trimmers from bouncing off.

I wouldn't paint the walls, unless you want to repaint them once a year.Scuffed up unpainted walls look a lot better than scuffed up painted walls.
I painted my floors. Floors should be painted to protect them from moisture(rain), gas , fertilizer or whatever might be laying on it.

With the extended tongue you should mount your leaf vac on the tongue itself.
Nice trailer.

I painted the walls in all my enclosed trailers. It's brighter and more pleasant inside. I also got mine insulated and an aluminum ceiling.
