    I just got a 5x10 single axle with a whole bunch of locks and other stuff, what else besides a Trimmer Trap should I put on it? I don't want to spend too much more because I already paid $1150- :(

    Thanks in advance :)

    Mowers, blowers, gas cans, etc. Seriously though, weld on some hooks on all sides of the trailer. They will come in very handy when tying down. $1150.00 seems very high for a trailer of that size. It amazes me that trailer prices vary so much across the U.S. I bought an 83" X 18', double axle, electric brakes, side rails, for $1625.00.

    I just got an 18'x6'6" tandem with brakes for 1140.00

    And a trimmer rack with locks for 60.00.

    How many do you want to buy?

    That is why they cost so much here. In the south and midwest they are cheaper. I am actually planning a trip to FL in September to get my new trailer and am going to bring a few home on top of it for other people. That and the vacation I will take makes the trip worthwhile.
