    I have a 14"enclosed landscape truck body with dovetail/ramp shelving and racks just being used as storage (it used to be on a NPR i sold), i saw a old gooseneck cattle trailer with all the railing and roof cut off, i was thinking of mounting the box onto the trailer and running it as an enclosed trailer to keep my mowers out of the rain. Does this sound like it can be done and do think it would look redneck? If anyone has done this i would love to see picks. I'll post some pics of the cargo box and trailer later to what ya'll think.

    as long as you know what you are doing and have the equipment to do it i don't see why it wouldn't turn out just like an enclosed trailer except for the fact it would sit allitle higher. I would assume your planning on stripping the trailer down to the frame though and just mounting the box to the trailer frame.

    On the trailer, is the deck above or between the wheels? If the deck is between, the truck body probably won't fit.
