    Picked this up last Friday. Still need to add 2' sides but otherwise ready to go. It has about every option on it possible, upgraded axles, extra cross members, tarp kit, 14K jack, etc.

    Congrats, on the new trailer!!!!

    I bought the same one last Fall from Nite Equipment in Pecatonica, IL.

    I just pulled it out of storage on 4/05/2013 and went to Home Depot today and bought Four - 2" x 12" x 16' boards for the rails. And Six 2" x 4" x 8' boards for the staked sides. Two gallons of Behr Paint & Primer in Stain Black to paint all the wood. It was $200.08 for the materials.....had I had the lag bolts, nuts, and washers laying around already....so once it gets painted I can build up the boxed sides.

    I think I'll cut the top of the stakes at 30 degree angle....to keep the water from sitting on top of the wood...plus it gives it a little cleaner look.

    A Buddy of mine, is going to paint the wood at his shop..... and I should have it done in a week or so. But it's going to rain on and off for the next week....and it might snow on Friday....so the radio said today???

    Once I get it done....going to add two signs to the sides and then I'll post some pictures.

    But yep, that's a great trailer.....use it to haul My Organic Compost around....works great!!!!

    Enjoy your new trailer!!!!
