Trailer Gates

Heres the deal, i have a 5x8 tilt trailer. I am so sick of tilting my trailer to get my mower into it. I was wanting to weld the trailer onto the tongue so the trailer will not tilt anymore then i was going to put a gate on it. I was wondering where i could buy a gate and hinges for my trailer? Thanks for all the help guys!

I would check with a trailer dealer, they usually will sell them.

I had this same scenario,I went to a local weldingshop and told them I wanted a ramp. 3 days later I got a call saying they were done. It was like 200 dollars. It's great it's removable and super heavy duty

I was going to have this done for my old 5x8. I got a quote of 185 and he had one there to show me. I was going to do it but then I decided to buy a bigger trailer. Any shop should be able to do it
