Add ons are great but can always be done at a later time. A spare carrier is a great idea. Just get the bolt on type so you can put it where you want. The new Greentouch blower rack is top notch and won't damage your blower while keeping it safe. 6x12 is a good size for your combo of mowers. It is the limit for single axle unless you upgrade to a bigger axle and brakes.

I have my spare standing up along side the RF side rail of the trailer. With the treads touching the front rail. Two bungee cords are my spare tire carrier.
I had a metal spare tire bracket attached to the side rail but it shook to much so I took it down before it eventually caused a weld to crack.
I have out grown this one looking at a dump 7x14 or 7x16 next year and will build it the way I built the add ons on this 6.5x12..I just always find something else I need on a job so I add it to the trailer everything has its place..good luck..
That's organized lol. I like everything but the pole saw. Too expensive to be on the outside like that

01 Thump I have a question for you and anyone else with nice equipment on these trailers like you have.
Why in the world would you have a very nice organized trailer with 20K+ in tools and equipment on it and just a single axle?
I figured for sure especially after seeing your trailer and equipment that you would want to take more precautions to protect your investment driving down the road than on a single axle trailer, there is no way in this world I would not have a dual axle especially if I was a business and had nice equipment you have.
Now with that said I would trust your trailer over some other trailers I have seen the photos of or some I have seen here in my aread from other mowing companies they have posted, actually some of their trailers I have seen for a company were nothing but a joke, but to each is their own I guess.
I love single axle trailers they can turn way better less wear on tires and as far as if I had a blowout no big deal I have had blow outs on single axle trailers before I tow it with my dually that out weighs it so have not had a bad experience yet with a blowout..plus all my stuff is insured so if it happens it happens cant be afraid of something all the time..I got this trailer used on a quick buy needed it that day so I bought it cheap and built all the add ons I needed myself..my dream trailer would be a dump trailer 7x14 single 10,000lbs axle on it the turning radius is so much better on a single axle and the wear on tires is night and day different...that is my answer to your question to each his or her own...peace...I might have to have my dream trailer built or just buy a dual axle 7x14 dump trailer..next year I will upgrade..
Thanks for the reply I was just curious and not that trusting with that much money and set up with only two tires or any insurance company for that matter.
You have one of the nicest set-ups I have seen, but I did not understand the reasoning for the lack of another axle.
