    Man that's a lot of money to spend but I was just thinking when I get a trailer some day I guess I'll have to rent a storage place. I'm 17 so I still live at home and we already have 2 boats and a trailer parked in the back so there isn't really room for anything else and when I move out I'll be in an appartment with nowhere to keep the trailer. If I lived in a house with enough room I'd probably get a metal building though.

    this might night be the most profesional solution but it works well for us. in our "even earlier days" (im talking when we pushed 21's to the job) we struck up a good friendship with a client. so once we were in a pinch and asked if we could leave our trailer near his garden for the night. he said no probelm. well thngs grew from that and know all of our equpment is on his property. yard, shed and basment, and we do his lawn and some add ons for free. we tried a small greenhouse their too.... it may not work but its worth a shot to just see whats right in front of you...
