    Our company colors are mainly maroon and white. We wear maroon shirts with white ink.

    I am looking to buy an enclosed trailer in the next month or two.

    I am thinking about ordering the trailer maroon and put our logo on it in white versus white trailer with maroon logo, everyone has white trailers so figure it would be different and would be eye catching because your mainly used to seeing majority white trailers and a few black ones.

    Any opinions?

    Also, we currently run a 18' open trailer for a 44" wb, two z's, and try and cram two 21" mowers as well. I am thinking about getting a 20' and probably 8.5' wide and not the 7' wide model. The only concern is I think after 18' the manufacturer requires to go from 7k to 10k, even though 7k would be sufficient weight.

    our trucks are pretty much maroon and we just ordered and 8.5x24 enclosed with two tone color option, met. charcola front 2/3 and maroon back 1/3. i thought it would be too much if we got the entire thing maroon. we will be doing chrome vinyl on the maroon portion
