alright everyone here are my lastest mods. and inventions:cool: first is the improvement to the trailor. i added box (which was free):D then i made the gas can rack. the two fit perfect end to end no measuring just luck. The box was polished aluminum but i painted it black because it was all full of paint

second is the homeade blower holder. I think this design is pretty good lockable and tough. i got the steel for free. Inside the small square tube is a expansion spring which pushes the pin down at all times, the lock goes through the chain link pieces on the top.
the tubes can be bungeed to the link on the side and i can even bugee front so it won't bounce around:cool:

And finally the last creation, i never was able to jack up my trailor to reach my hitch, and welding an extension was not a option because of the low clearance already. I was stuck lifting the trailor and it was pretty dnag heavy:cry: so i made this a detachable caster wheel, it slips on like a shoe and the two bolts hold it in place i also can roll it around now without scratching the driveway there are also two nuts which i keep in my toolbox to lock the bolts on :cool: :D

I like that blower rack, but what if the spring fails to push the pin down. You might lose your blower on the highway. Maybe you could add a lower lip on the bottom part to make a hook so it will cradle the blower.
