    we got this little 6.5 x 12 last year and the floor was shot, the gate was all tweeked and the rear end with it due to poor constructiona nd bad abuse. it had no a rails when we got this and they are new along with the gate. it got a new hitch and modified to have a swing away jack in the tongue. new wood and wiring and i think that is all.

    it is actual Kubota piant too!!!!!!! we did all the grinding of the old rust and bad paint, then a auto body friend primered and painted it for us. this is for light jobs, houling a single mower for service or best of all pulling behind the tank truck with zsrpays so we dont have to haul the bigguns anymore with all that wieght.

    Looks good I painted my floor with black floor paint with sand mixed in so its not slick.I think a black floor with the orange would look good.My trailer is red with the black floor.

    alrighty then, yes it is a prison, holding facility actually!! we like the rims alot too!! they came with it so lucked out there. i think we paid $850 or so, but with all the mods and paint and flooring i think it now is a $1700 trailer!! my dad will chime in to tell that info i am sure at some point.

    we dont want to paint the flooring on a open trailer but have done that to the enclosed one. we eventually had the enclosed trailer floor Linexed and it is holding great. i think i have after photos before it went back to work. i will look.

    thanks guys and i am glad you like the color too, we are seeing how it holds up to abuse, i mean work and then paint more next winter to match this one.
