    I saw a picture on here some time ago of a trailer that the front half was enclosed and the rear half was open. I can't remember where it was. I am going to build a new trailer this year and I am looking for ideas. Security and keeping stuff out of the weather are BIG concerns, but I also like the space of an open section. I am usually by myself (one ZTR, one 21", one walk behind blower, one backpack blower etc), but occasionally I have other guys helping me. What I would like to have is the capability to cary all of my equipment - with the majority of it out of the weather and then occasionally cary a second ZTR. Any pictures or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

    I do realize that a large enclosed trailer would pretty much suite my needs, but I just don't know for sure if that is what I want.

    It has 3' removeable sides a ramp on the back and ramp on the enclosed front section. Has 14,0000 paylaod capacity.

    Paid around 5k to have it built.

    Jeff, that trailer has to be great to have. What do you keep in the enclosed section?

    I carry small equipment, tools, plants and such. It allows me to keep all of my tools safe and secure and still have room to ahaul 10 yards or more of mulch?

    Jeff and Metro, Thank both of you for replying!! I really like your trailers!! I hate to aggravate you, but do either one of you have a few more pictures-especially like the door / ramp systems. I hope to get the ball rolling on this very soon!!

    Thanks,

    Jay
