    How do you guys make out on these things? I almost did our spring show this year, but held out due to the snow. They have a fall show as well that I think would be useless for us. I will most likely do the spring show for next season. It is usually for 1 weekend, and you have to be in and loaded in 1/2 day and out in the same. :)

    This was our first show. So everything was new to us. I think the show went well.
    One thing you have to be careful with is people dreaming. Alot of the people come through and are just dreaming of having a patio by us and will ask for an estimate only to find out that its going to be 75% more than they thought.

    We had alot of fun with the show, met alot of people.

    Yeah, I could imagine the people that pass by. Please let us know what kind of response rate you receive from it. Like I said I have been contemplating doing next years show, but it is quite the investment for only 3 days. Think the booth was about $3k plus crews to setup, take down, material cost, and 3 guys for 3 days to run the booth. Thanks for the post, you guys have a sharp image. :)

    i like your enclosed trailer, very nice. if don't mind sharing about how much did the lettering and graphics cost? i am shopping for an enclosed trailer right now and want to do something similar to yours. i think they are an awesome marking tool.

    We have around 2000.00 in the trailer. I have a good friend who owns a sign shop so I can get pretty good deals.
