    I don't know what you call these so I couldn't search for it. The trucks with no bed but instead have a trailer on them. I would like to do this. I hate pulling a trailer when I have nothing in the bed and could just make that into a trailer.

    Anyone on here doing this and see any advantages of it? I am starting to see them everywhere here.

    That second pic is it. Small truck just for 2 guys and the little trailer on the back. Sounds like a good idea to me. I think I heard they were about 1,500 to have made and put on.

    "this is a quote from that thread"



    I got this one for $1550 and it is just about the same as JustMowIt In fact they gave me the number and contact to Prime Trailers in Mckinney Texas ask for Gary or Jeremy . They can paint it whatever color you need included in the price. It has worked great for me. I have only had it in service fo a week or so. I am no longer worried about being in the truck with the crew. I always thought a trailer was too much liability for the unskilled driver. Plus cuts down on gas. It will fit 3 guys. No bungies needed for the mowers. There is a little piece of angle iron behind the rear wheel of the second mower on the right and the single left mower.

    I probably will extend the gate a little further to make it hit the ground and to decrease the angle of ascent. It is a bit of booger getting the mowers up it and going down is a bit rough taking the 4 inch drop when you are tired a the end of the day and lazy. I am worried about the life of the wheels. So I probably will get the ramp extended.
