    I have a 7x14 open trailer on order. Its a tandem axle with 2ft. mesh sides and I'm going with aluminum wheels. Most trailers I see are black. Was thinking about red, just to stand out a little more. My truck is white and also thought about white, but never seen a white open trailer. Thoughts/opinions on which color you guys/gals would go with. Thanks

    I have a neighbor with a white one like that, it looks a little strange behind his green f150 but if you have a white truck I would do it.

    Black or green works. Red is ok but it really makes no difference. Go with black. Cheaper and easy

    I considered a bright green when I bought my used trailer, but decided against it.
    Touch ups are easier with black.

    Nothing wrong with "color" - it will surely stand out.
    What color are your mowers? If your truck is white, I'd match the trailer to my equipment if I were going that route.

    Black is easy to touch up, my single axle is blue which isn't too bad to touch up either, and kind of stands out.
