    The trailer is a 14' single axle:hammerhead: (mistake) We are getting ready to order a 8x20' enclosed to compliment this one. I highly reccommend a trailer for both storage at the jobsite, plus it's a huge rolling billboard.
    Squiz - We have a separate trailer for the skidder!:laugh: Let's see your pics Mate!

    You are right of course with the enclosed. Our trailer is a bit like GM's I think and its open. This is mainly because we often put blocks and pallets of cement in the trailer, as well as the 3.5 cu/ft mixer and various other things that we lift on/off with the excavator. I've been planning on getting a 4 tonne Isuzu and haven't really given too much thought to an enclosed trailer. Our open trailer could then become the GP trailer...Hmmm more crap, just what I need.

    Nice artwork on the side.

    Thanks Chris ...Like I said earlier we just got two 12 x 6 ...I gave the guys the option of a bigger size and they picked this one... we'll see how they work out.

    They havn't started customizing yet so ill show them your pics ... maybe they will pick up an idea or 2.

    Im hoping to take my 7x16ft Enclosed and make it my hardscape/construction trailer and wrap it with Cambridge Pavers Wrap that they offered me:dizzy: ....I cant wait to set up that rolling billboard:hammerhead: , Gonna replace it (currently the mowing trailer) with a 8x22ft for the mowing because 16ft will be tight this year;) , but it also depends on how much work we do this year....Im not to worried though:dizzy: .
