    Does anyone have any suggestions on how i need to build sides on my tralier for hauling leaves. I have a 83"x 16' utility w/12" sides on it now. Any ideas?

    My 16' trailer has 1' high angle iron sides. I used 5 pieces of 4'x8' treated plywood and 4' pieces galvanized angle iron (2'' flanges and holes every inch) nuts,bolts and washers. about $150 4 years ago. Cut a piece of plywood to fit inside the front rail of trailer. I used 5 bolts and big washers for angles. Bolted 2 u chanels togather to join sides. This sits on the trailer floor. 4th year same parts. In and out takes 10 min. Another 2 min. to bolt to side rail of trailer. 1 bolt per sheet.
