    Purchased a new Big Tex trailer today. Can't wait to get it. 7 x 16 landscaper, 2 gates, electric brackes. spare tire, tool racks, gate assists.

    Here's the kicker.. I don't know what color to pick. I was thinking yellow!!!! What do you guys think about that? The other option is amazon green, but everyone has the green. Basically they said I could have any color I choose.

    Help me pick!!!!! What color...... Green or Yellow

    Cool! I've got a Big Tex too.....dark blue which matches my truck exactly. I know everyone's got green but wouldn't yellow scuff up easy? Just a thought. Yellow would definitely get you noticed though.

    Thanks for the help. I am turning my 5x12 into a leaf vacuuming machine for the winter. Just got to figure out what to with the leafs over the weekend.

    Yellow would deffinately get me noticed, but green is soooo normal. I want to stand out on the road.

    I hate easy decisions!

    2367 $ out the door. I am driving to the factory to pick it up in 3 weeks. Will post new pics as soon as I get it back here.

    My truck is white and uglier than the trailer behind it. I will have paid more for the truck than the trailer when it gets here

    watch out for the wiring configuration on big-tex trailers. they run there wires through holes drilled in the frame w/ no protective wraps. After one year I had to rewire the entire trailer or continue to change fuses numerous times a day. The holes they cut had vary sharp edges. Other than that great trailer.
