    I bought a peice of black pvc that was either 8" or 10" diameter. Just bolted it onto the side walls of the trailer and it holds a pointed shovel, flat, rake, loppers, space, and axe. I got the big pvc at lowes, i guess its some sort or pipe for drainage. It is about 2 feet long probably. It was fine straight up but I didnt want everything that high so I gave it a slight angle towards the back of the trailer so everything sits down lower.

    This works great for me, I know you can buy actual storage racks though.

    I used some scrap pvc and mounted it to the expanded mesh with hd plastic ties,painted everything black.One for the rake,one for trash grabber, one for the loppers. Nice to not have to look for something.

    I have the trimmertrap racks, and made my own tool holder to go in between theirs instead of buying theirs. was alot cheaper and allowed me to have everything lower.

    I got the pvc for mine too but I back my trailer into my garage everyday and it's too low for rakes and such. I thought about angling toward the back but I worry about them getting blown out while on the highway. No need to worry now, thanks.
