Need help building sides for a trailer

Hello all,
I am a college student starting a junk removal business with some landscaping on the side. I have a trailer that measures
Inside width
61"
Length
121"
I want to put tall sides all around it but not sure the best way as I have never built anything before. I am a college student but not smart when it comes to this stuff.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to hold trash things like that and possibly have a tailgate that I can remove ( if I have a couch or something large ) if possible

What all would if need to get or what is the best way to do this

The side pockets are worthless I think, because it runs into the frame instead of being open

Throw up some pictures so we can really help you... The basic idea is to create vertical supports around the trailer, and then tie the sides and vertical supports together with other wood/ metal supports going horizontally and maybe even diagonally. All depends how high you want to go aswell.
