    i have a 5x10 tilt trailer. my problem is that i have a need for 2 mowers now and when i put one on, i can't get the other on because of the tilt trailer. can you buy a gate to put on a tilt trailer or would it be cheaper to just buy a new trailer with a gate? thanks.

    sure you can. I added one to my 6x10. I also welded the front of the trailer down. Doesnt tilt anymore. Few hrs of work, and about $225.00 worth angle iron and expanded steel.

    if you can fabricate you should be able to make one, but from your post, i don't think, you do. how far do you travel? do you need to have a good trailer? what do you need for your future? I wouldn't spend money on a trailer unless it hauls all your needs
