    Be careful not to bang up your bumper with that while backing up and turning. Might look into a longer hitch or so, they're only 60 bucks. Other than that, it looks good!

    Looks good I was going to do the same thing to my trailer. If you turn around in a drive is it going to be close to hitting your bumper? what are the deminsions of the box if you don't mind me asking?

    I would set it up on top of the trailer and turn the lid around to open to the back so not to have to reach over the lid. Only my 2cents

    I dont know the demisions quite this moment but I will check and let you know. We were worried about the box hitting the bumper, but I was backing it up and was seeing how far I could turn it before bumping and it was pretty far. I can always get an extension.

    Yep I would elevate that rack and move it over the trailer and not over the nose. Turn the box around fo easy access. Make sure it is welded to the trailer and not bolted or strapped on.

    I was thinking about elevating the rack but we also use the trailer to carry 2- fourwheelers and they barely fit, so tha wouldnt of worked. I just painted it and got ir welded on I will post a pic of it soon.
