I think I am going to get a new trailer. So far it will be an Open 16 x 6.5, 2' mesh sides, Tandem w/brakes on both, a cage on the front and gate on the drivers side. I will order Xtreme racks for shaft equipment as soon as they are available. I also will have the rear gate reinforced and maybe extended to 5'.
Have I missed anything? Please post pics of your 16' or 14' opens and talk about what works and does not.
