    I bought a Thule enclosed trailer back in june and i bought a trimmer rack for it.But the saleslady gave me a trimmer rack for an open trailer.I went up there today to see if i can get a setup for the enclosed trailer and she said it was going to take six to eight weeks to get them.I just dont have the time to wait.I already made some mounting brackets to screw to the side of them but i need to push them out so the trimmers can fit in there.I Have seen 2x4's used and was wondering if that would give me the spacing i will need..
    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mike

    What rack is it? I used the jungle jims from my open trailer, took a flat strip of alum and mad an "L". Simple took about 30 mins total. I just used alum cause it was easy to drill.

    Order them online from someone else. Landscaperpro.com has several racks at a good price. If your trailer is tall enough, you can use there hand tool rack. Holds the trimmer straight up and down and only cost like $40. I use them for both sets of hedge trimmers.

    I used open trailer trimmer racks in my enclosed trailer. I just used a 2x6 to mount them to and space them out from the wall.
