    Yea kinda a hobby of mine. Cheaper than buying new. And I know every inch of it so I know how to repair it if needed. Thanks for the comment. Maybe you guys can give me some new ideas for "custom" landscape trailers. Something out of the ordinary, not just a everyday open trailer.payup

    um, if you go down a sloping driveway and then up something steep, you sure the plate wont hit? I bottom out my trailer every now and then.

    It may but it is mounted on a plastic plate holder that will flex. That's the correct location for mounting a license plate in NC by DOT standards. It has to be mounted there so that the left taillight which has a clear bottom will illuminate it at night. Never had a customer complain yet. Would you believe I sold this trailer in under a week for full asking price with no haggling. Around here a 4x8 goes from anywhere of $598 to $898. I sold it for less than that and still made some off season money.
