    Looks great! Seems like a great setup for smaller to medium lawns. I like the Dakota too!

    Looks great Jonathan!

    Like the sign!

    One quick question/comment....Does you trailer license plate have a light on it? It DOES need to!

    Take Care!

    I'll be thinkin' of all you guys while I'm down sittin' on the beach with a drink in my hands, and my toes in the sand.

    OBX here I come!

    No computer down there, NO Lawnsite! :cry:

    Hey Jonathan, I went the same route as you. I have a norrow 14' trailer and a 2000 Ford Ranger w/Trailhead package. I have a Great Dane Scamper 48", a Gravely Pro 40 (backup), a 21" Ariens, Billy Goat Vac, Tool box, 2 Echo trimmers and an echo blower.
    My truck has no problems towing all that either (4:10 rear) and it is perfect for doing residentials or driving on narrow country roads out to the dealer. Looks great, maybe I can find a digital camera and post some of my setup.

    Looks good gogetter. I like the sign...stands out.

    I run a Dodge Dak as well. Black truck and Black trailer. I painted the trailer rims to match the trucks Aluminum rims.

    Maybe you should paint your trailer yellow? It would really be a stand out set-up then!

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    Tommy, I didn't know the license needed a light. I haven't had a problem yet. Seems most of the trailers I see have thiers the same way. Thanks for the heads up though!

    Jocko, the sign was made by a local sign maker that I found in phone book. His shop is in his garage. It's 48"w x 24"h, plywood painted white with vinyl lettering and graphics. Paid $125 for it.

    Jimbo, I have entertained the thought of an enclosed trailer painted to match. That would really stand out, but I'm not sure. My wife says that would be TOO much yellow! LOL!
    I hope to get a full size truck and larger (possibly enclosed) trailer next season. Who knows, maybe I'll have them both painted yellow. It does make finding the truck in a parking lot easier:D
