LANDSCAPE Trailer Setups - Let's See Them!

I've got my 12' open trailer I want to setup to be the dedicated landscape crew trailer. I've been tossing ideas around how to to set things up (organize tools, build equipment racks/boxes, etc) all winter and still cant make up my mind what I want to do. I'm also open to ideas that you might have. I'll make a list below of what I want to put on there:

-I have 2 of these big totes:

One has the chainsaws and associated gear in it, the other has all landscape tools that do not have a handle on them (weeding tools, hand pruners, hardscaping tools, etc) as well as all the edging stakes/connectors and fabric staples.

-Echo PAS system with 5-6 attachments
-2 gas hedge trimmers
-hand blower
-backpack blower
-trimmer
-stick edger
-5-6 5 gallon buckets with assorted seed and other "stuff"
-3-4 wheelbarrows
-assortment of rakes, shovels, brooms, etc
-small roller

Probably a couple other small things I am forgetting but you get the idea. The trailer already has a backpack blower rack and trimmer racks on it. Obviously I dont expect to fit plant material on there at the same time, but stuff should be able to come off easy enough that we can fit plants and supplies in there.


FYI I don't want to see pics of trailers with mower on them, I already have that setup thank you! So lets see what YOU have for your open landscape trailers and maybe it will give me some ideas!

if there is room, some people mount a box on the tongue of the trailer behind the hitch. depending on how much space is there you can get a decent sized box in there. and some trailers you can mount a little headache rack with a big basket that you can just throw a lot of your smaller tools in, and then on either end you can put hooks for your blowers and stuff.

To haul more debris, and mulch more easily.

To give it that hillbilly look. It does make it easier to get more light weight debris on there but looks bad in the long run.

Yeah, I've always been more of a fan of mesh sides.

Think one guy didn't read the red Line.

My Landscape trailer is a dump bed GN. The Flat bed of the truck is where my tools go.
My self I don't like tools hanging on my trailers. I see guys has them hanging on there trailers and you are limited where you can work off the trailer.
I don't like showing my tools to the world to see
