    Anyone ever find a trailer with a side ramp or add one? I think the ideal trailer would be a 24 foot enclosed with a 6 foot side ramp for walk behinds, standers, or z-sprays. Post pics if you got em.

    Some of the v-nose ramps cannot be used unless the truck is parked at an angle to the trailer, which is rather inconvenient.

    I know it's kinda off topic but I think the fuel doors are pretty cool to!

    I think those motorcyle trailers will cut down on your ability to put cabinets and stuff up front. But fuel doors?

    I ordered my 2010 Pace Summit that way. 597.00 put a 60 inch side ramp on the passenger side and the 36 inch entry door moved to the driver side for no charge. I want to say that there is still 30 inches at the front of the trailer for cabinets. I ordered mine with the built in shelves. Was supposed to be done on May 7th but the factory is running a week behind. Will take pics when I pick it up later this week. Hopefully.

    Thanks

    I have had a couple different enclosed trailers in the past but this is my first one for lawncare. I did a lot of research and shopping and Pace was at the top of my short list quality wise. I really wanted the Shadow GT by Pace but just couldnt spend the dollars to get it right now so I went with the Summit with the Landscape package. Mines an 8x20 with the wide axles, side ramp, loading lights, ATP shelving, spare tire in floor, and extra height for 7,200.00. I ordered all my racks from Extreme and a Pit-pal for it so its gonna be set up right. Just waiting on it to be finished so I can go pick it up.

    Thanks

    Bob
