    Heres the deal, i have a 5x8 tilt trailer. I am so sick of tilting my trailer to get my mower into it. I was wanting to weld the trailer onto the tongue so the trailer will not tilt anymore then i was going to put a gate on it. I was wondering where i could buy a gate and hinges for my trailer? Thanks for all the help guys!

    I would check with a trailer dealer, they usually will sell them.

    I had this same scenario,I went to a local weldingshop and told them I wanted a ramp. 3 days later I got a call saying they were done. It was like 200 dollars. It's great it's removable and super heavy duty

    Yeah just have one fabricated. Any welding shop should be able to do it no problem.

    I was going to have this done for my old 5x8. I got a quote of 185 and he had one there to show me. I was going to do it but then I decided to buy a bigger trailer. Any shop should be able to do it
