    The trailer looks awesome man!! Hopefully it won't be too much of a bear to keep clean:)
    Now that it is so pretty don't forget to wash/dress the tires.
    Good job!

    Very nice! I like the dual ramps, you won't ever have to worry about what side of the road to park on! How much bagged material do you plan on loading on at once? Is it to go in the back? I just wonder if the tank (when it's empty) and the machine would be enough to counter the weight of bagged fert if it's clear in the back of the trailer, will it still have sufficient tounge weight?

    Thanks for the nice comments. We have loaded the tank (150 gallons ) the Z and no problem towing with a 1/2 ton small v8, and, we figure we can load up to 2000 lbs of dry product on the rear of the trailer behind the tank. We chose that trailer because of the dual axles. Here is a pic of our first mock up.
