    Mine is a 6x10 modified mid-atlantic single axle. 2x2 bracing has been added to the underside, solid sides for mulch etc, tarp tie-downs, rear drop jacks, reflective tape, extra lighting, trimmer racks, tool storage bay. This year I'll be replacing the 3000# axle with a 5000# w/brakes. Oh I also put 2x4 post brackets for leaf season and 800# recessed floor tie-downs.
