The whole idea of a enclosed trailer is so you dont have to lock the things in side it. It might seems like a back killer but i would rather be sore then have to go spend 500 dollars!!

umm there are MANY ideas behind enclosed trailers.

personally when actually working I use my enclosed trailer as I would an open trailer. ramp door hits the pavement as soon as I arrive and doesn't go up until I'm finished using whatever equipment I take out the rear ramp. which happens to be my trimmers, edgers and mowers. then the side door opens and stays open until I'm finished using whatever equipment I take out the side door. which happens to be my blower.

my reason for using an enclosed trailer is primarily to keep my equipment from the elements. secondly I can lock things up overnight by just locking the ramp door and side door. and thirdly when working in the field it takes a closer look to see what I actually have in there rather than observing an open trailer from a distance or driving by. you can't see inside an enclosed trailer as well or quickly as you can see what's on an open trailer when driving by or taking a quick look from across the street while walking.

But what you better do, you better indict Joe Horn, and you better find him guilty. Because if you don't, somebody is gonna kill him on the outside, and if he goes to prison he's gonna get killed on the inside. It's as simple as that. They waiting on him in prison, and we're waiting on him on the outside. We gonna kill that mother fvcker. Bye."

Bad guys are bad guys and they know bad guys, and they really like fvcking with people.....
A little different .. Joe went next door and shot them .. I said "come in MY house"

I hear ya Nredo - Homeowners have more rights w/the law than if you are on someone else property.

My post was about the bad guys and their crew coming back for revenge.
And I hear that happens way more than we think. Look, they mess if w/people for no good reason, they darn tootin' going to come back for you for messin' with one of them.
