    Well I finally got a designated 16' Hardscape Trailer, Anybody got any tips or tricks for storing hardscape tools and materials.
    How do you guys feel about lettering, I cant decide wether to have a picture/pictures of work we have done in the background or just have company name, and phone number and stuff?

    Thanks

    Regarding the lettering. The vinly is old school. Go with the digital photos showing your work. They really stand out among the crowd. Keep in mind it cost more but it will pay for itself... Good luck

    I am in the market now for a new trailer. I have my eye on a 18' crew chief with built in bathroom. That only leaves 14' for my tools. What size is your trailer cg?

    Have you done any work since you done the trailer that you really wish was on it?

    yeah how much? is that a full trailer wrap? around here i think places wanted north of 6 grand+, my 24' 12k trailer was only 10gs, so that was too much lol. I hate just vinyl letters though, i have a nicer idea for around 2 grand i think.

    The trailer was $3,800 to letter. Its an 8'x20' trailer w/ 48" side door. 10K# It is not a wrap. The great thing about it is that if I want a new pic on there, they take one off and install the new one. There are 14 diff. pics and they are all individual.
    I will take a pic of the inside one of these days.

    Do it today, will ya? We're going to organize our's this week. I could use some help.

    BTW, I love the graphics, but I couldn't bring myself to drop $2-3K to do our 16'. So, vinyl won out this time :(
