    I'm thinking of getting an enclosed trailer and then seeing if I can get some companies to advertise on the side of it...
    I would keep the middle section over the wheels and part of the back ramp for for myself..

    any thoughts ??
    any thoughts on prices ??

    has anyone did this before ??

    send your pics to me subzero@mcsnet.ca

    I'd just use it for advertising myself. IMO advertising others would be kind of wierd.

    I would keep it for yourself, I find that out of all my advertising yellow pages, ad in newspaper and stuff that my enclosed trailer gets me the most calls. I was amazed after I got my trailer done how many people called and said, " I saw your trailer parked down the road and was wondering if you could give me an estimate?".

    Got a few guys in my area that advertise for their mower dealer....you may want to try that and workout a deal with your dealer,in exchange for dicounted parts or labor.

    I think it is a pretty good idea. Getting an enclosed trailer this winter and might look into that. Atleast talk to my dealer see if he wants to work out a deal
