    Thanks TriCountyLawn! Do you have an idea on how much it would weight...(1' x 16' by 1" thick piece of wood in pine? Maybe 18 to 20 pounds for one board???

    Why pine, cuz it's cheaper, I can stain it, and since it's vertical...it should hold up in weather....plus it's a lot lighter than pressure treated wood (since I work solo...unusually).

    What about the front of the trailer? Should I do metal "L" brackets to attach the left and right sides together? Some lag bolts, since I don't have any stakes in the front of the trailer. Or so I get two or three stakes wielded on the front of the trailer???

    What would you do???
