    there arent alot of stupid questions. just stupid answers, put it on what ever side you like it the most. i dont think it really matters. in my enclosed trailer i have mine on the passenger side. because my moer is on the other side.

    You should put it on the right side (passenger) that way you dont have to go into the street to get your trimmers. Just like on the enclosed trailers, the side door is on the right hand side.

    right hand side, it is safer, if you have a trimmer that is hanging just slightly off and it catches on a truck passing by, you could be at fault. also the front works in a pinch, but only if the equipment is shorter than the width of the trailer, and it reduces visibility.

    Just a silly note to pass along. When the First 3rd door Extended cab truck rolled off the line, the 3rd door was on the passenger side to help reduce the risk of injury to boarding and unboarding of passengers from on-coming traffic.
