    I want to put a basket on the front of my trailer but am having trouble finding them on- line. Where would be the best place to find one. I found two on-line. One is almost $500, Ouch!! The other was about $150. Do local trailer shops sell these.

    I'll post some pictures of mine today. your best bet will be to have a local metal shop(or even a shadetree welder) fabricate something that will work perfectly for your application.

    I agree with Accu Cut find a good welder to build one for you. That way you can modify to your needs.

    Saw a few at Orscheln's Farm & Home store here in KC.
    They were $150.00 - $250.00
    I'm sure there is a Farm store close to you that carries them. I don't think I could build one for less than what they sell them for, unless I got metal for dirt cheep.
    I'm always up for building stuff but not when it cost the same or less to buy.
    If I'm not saving at-least 50% by building it myself I'll just buy it.
