Looking good, I built 2 of those for my 2 trailers and love them only thing I would have done different on yours was bolt the cage to the trailer rail rather than weld

Explain the bolt method? So its removable? I don't want stuff walking away from me.

Looks like you have a pretty good Idea of what you are doing. I built mine two seasons ago. I made a blower rack on the side over the spare tire. It is the only way to go. I also did make mine a bolt on cage. It would be a challenge to undo those bolt with everything locked up. I am glade to have the option of removing it if ever I need to. If you want to see it I can P.M. you the thread address or you may have seen it already. David

I agree, IMO it is a bad idea to weld it versus bolt. Better to build things modular so that it can be removed for sale, modification, etc.

To secure a cage that size I would put at least 8-10 grade 8 bolts. It would take someone quite a while to remove that cage that way. PLUS you can still secure the cage to the trailer frame.

Nah when I build things I know what I want and what I'm doing. No need for it to be removable, this thing is solid.
