    Finally have pics to show of the interior of my enclosed.
    The side ramp I ordered, to me, already is a MUST have for my WB and 21"
    I plan to Fastrap down my WB. Any suggestions for the Z - should I go Fastraps OR Prolocker? My gut feeling is that Fastraps are kind of a pain to use on a large wheeled Z but need opinions. Also, how do you guys fasten down a 21"?

    take notice that mowers are not straped down. nor are the e tracks or eye hooks to strap to installed. beautiful trailer. it is... until emergency stop for office worker at yellow light and mower comes thru front of trailer dont trust the brakes on equipment. strap them

    He clearly says that he wants opinions on what straps to use! So they will obviously be strapped down once he gets them

    apoligize for overlooking that detail. atleast statement was made and maybe others wont make the mistake of thinking because its an enclosed trailer straping is not needed.

    personally use etracks


    6k pounds should cover you on most accidents and will also give you more options when straping 4 wheelers tractors etc

    I agree I really like that side ramp. That will be so handy.

    Yep mowers will be strapped I am just going for placement right now until season starts then strapped they will be.

    I already have Fastraps for the WB. I hear one vote for etrack for the Z. Anyone think that Fastraps or Prolockers will work better/worse for a Z?

    Also, what solutions does everyone have for securing a 21"?

    (FYI - some of you are probably wondering why I didn't get the floor line-ex'd or something. The floor is Rainblock engineered for one, and I just don't have time to get the thing done since the season is starting like next week. Perhaps I can get a linex job done down the line....)

    I was wondering when you would get some pics up, it looks great. I vote for vertical etrack screwed to the floor next to the wall. This will give you a way to tie down alot of equipment types. How mauch room do you have behind the WB after the door is up, can you walk around it?
