Pulled a few pics off my phone. I'll have more pics when we get further into spring.

Steel wheels on the enclosed were getting rusty. We were going to repaint them this winter but decided to just order some aluminum wheels instead. Price was reasonable.




Snow finally melted off to allow for leaf cleanups. We usually have cleanups done in March, but we still have the majority of our list to complete.

Decided to build a simple leaf box setup on the GMC to free up the dump trailer for other tasks. We will still setup the dump trailer with a leaf box in the fall during "heavy leaf season". But before the main leaf cleanups in fall and during the spring, we don't collect much. This should hold all of our spring cleanup material.



One more. One of the many tasks we needed the dump trailer for during leaf cleanup time. Installing garden soil in an annual planting bed that we will be taking care of this year. More on that later

Do any of your trucks have airbags? Front or rear?

We have air bags on all trucks (rear). The gmc actually has bags on the front, but we haven't used them in years because they won't hold air. It's a unique setup with an air bag built onto the shock.

Did you get another enclosed trailer? The one in the above pic looks bigger than the pictures earlier in this thread. I just bought a a new Haulmark enclosed trailer from J & J Campers this past December, love it. I wish that I had done this sooner.

nope, just an optical illusion. That's our old 16' wells. We actually could use more room (18 or 20 would be great), but don't want to spend the cash right now.

You'll love the enclosed!

Funny you got yours in the QC, we bought ours in Rock Falls lol.

We ended up with a 18' x 8.5' with 5200# axles. J & J treated us pretty good. I originally went to Charlestons to buy a new B & B equipment trailer but after they quoted me $6400, I thought why not spend a little more and get an enclosed.

Good size, we'd like to upgrade axles as well. 6400 seems pretty high for an open trailer. B&B's seem built pretty well though, our dump trailer is a tank. Smart decision to upgrade to an enclosed though

Yes, B & B are high priced trailers but imo are the best open trailers you can get and should be for the price. The one I priced was all custom and had all the bells and whistles.
