Trailer storage

I am getting kind of tired of stepping over shovels and crap in my truck when I gotta get in the bed.

Have any of y'all ever built something on your trailer for storage that didn't get in the way of loading and unloading machines?

I use 3" PVC pipe to hold my shovels, rakes, and other tools in my open trailer.

I took a 10" plastic pipe and have it standing up on the front of my lil trailer. I'll try and post a pic of it tomorrow. It holds most of my long handled tools.

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

We have dedicated landscape trailers separate from our Lawn Maint. Trailers.... Therefore there isnt 5 Bow Rakes in the Lawn trailers. Instead there is probably like one.

I realized on a normal day the lawn trailer has no need for these shovels and rakes so why bring them. If you don't need them, leave them at the shop!

I don't cut grass.. I keep them on the truck like you keep a weedeater or sprayer, and I never know when I might need a shovel at an estimate. And it's a pain to load and unload shovels every night. We just park it and go home.

I am just looking for a neat way to organize them on my gooseneck to keep from tripping all over them.

I have seen a mesh box about length of shovel and about 12x12 inch for shovels and digging bars or gate keys. It is made of mesh similar to style on trailer gate

PVC Pipe and a few loose nuts and bolts are going to be the cheapest solution.
