    My top rails on my trailer are round. Does anyone know of a trimmer rack that will fit these, or anything I could do? thanks

    I have the same type of "pipe top" rails that you have and I installed racks from Preco Distrubitors http://precoparts.com

    I installed them using 1/2 bolts, drilling into the side supports only and not into the actual pipe top support...hope this helps!!!

    I have pipe rails too, I just welded some angle iron to the pipe, then drilled the holes through the angle iron and the pipe.

    ya just like he said. if you get a piece of angle. put it so the sides run down the sides of the pipe. move it and put a level on top so the angle iron is parallel to the pipe on the trailer. play with it until the pipe has no wobble. that means the angle is on the pipe flush. some tube is welded together. pipe is solid and extruded when they make it.

    anyway some pipes or tubes have a high or low spot on the outside diameter
