    Is that a 7x16? Do you have to put the mowers backwards?

    Yes it's a 16 ft. and I don't have to load backwards, it's just something I've always done since previously having a 12 ft. with two 61" mowers. They fit by loading backwards with the bars of the walk behind hanging over the front of the trailer.

    OK, enough pics of NICE trailers. Time for some crappy trailers! :laugh:

    Here's my 5x8 "starter trailer".



    As it looked when I bought it...


    Primed and repainted all the metal and painted the plywood on the inside black...


    I wanted sides just a little higher and rather than replacing the existing wood (it was ugly, but rock-solid), I decided to "re-skin" the exterior. I applied some waterproofing deck stain I had left over...






    It looks pretty tiny when I stand back and look at it. I'd love to have a 16' trailer, but I simply don't have room for one. I'm limited to a ten, maybe twelve footer max. This should do OK for another year or so though.
    It may not be the nicest trailer, but I think I did a pretty good job of polishing a turd and it works for me, so I can't complain.
