    What company makes the clipper king trailer. I was reading walker talk last night and I saw the trailer but when I google it the only thing that shows up is about RVs. Can anyone help please.

    http://www.debrissystems.com/index.html Those trailers are nice the one in the magazine will run you about $17,000. I know someone will say thats a typo, but it's not. I priced out a 20' last year with I cant remember I think it had 15' equipment area with the ruberized floor coating. This was just an open trailer, not an enclosed trailer. Just the basic trailer and it was right at $20,000.

    $20,000. Thats a lot of money for a trailer. Thanks for the web site a mowing company by me was looking for the site too. You have to mow alot of lawns for that monet at $20.00 bucks a pop. I guess scooping by hand isn't to bad.

    Im curious about the rubber floor coating, Is it something you would spray or brush on, or is it actually a sheet of material, like flooring? That would be great for any open trailer.

    The way i understood it, it was like a sheet of material. I have seen like mats that are used in horse stalls that are like 4x8 by 1/2 or 3/4" thick its a hard ruberised material, but it is very expensive one sheet was like $75. Anyway I figured as soon as you all herd how much those trailers were you might change your mind about loading stuff by hand. I know i sure did.

    I have a debris system.....it's almost like having a robot! The floor in mine is like regular trailer floor boards but they are made out of recycled plastic I think.
