Trailer Restoration

Hello all - as some of you may have seen in my pic thread, I got a new to me trailer. I am going to be redoing all of it including racks, lights, deck, expanded metal ramps, fenders, and some re-welding.

At this stage, I am first trying to get it all planned out on how I want the layout to be. I want my trimmer and blower and string all on the passenger side so I don't have to go out into the road to retrieve them. I also really want to have all of my equipment on here.

I took a few photos of how I am thinking of arranging it, but would love some different suggestions or other pics of how you have done it.

Here we go:

I am thinking of building a enclosure between here for my 2 gas cans I use.

Was never a fan of side gates. Tried them once but they just didn't work for me. I didn't like unloading equipment directly onto other people's lawns. I don't park directly in front of my customers as we always clean the street as part of our services. Also without a side gate, you would have more rail to mount backpacks and other equipment. Check out lockable trimmer racks. There is a vender on here I use. I think it's a company called green tough or something. I would also cut the tounge support off. It really is doing nothing. Get a locking box for gas cans and other materials. They make vented diamond plated boxes just for this purpose. I have them even on our enclosed trailers. Floor space is too valuable to waste. Hope this helps a little.
