    im in the process of repainting 2 of my trailers and am stuck on either red or orange.
    I always have ran red trailers.
    I am considering the orange as i have orange mowers, work shirts, sanders, chippers, etc..

    I would like some opinions as to what people think would look better..


    I would keep my trimmertrap racks red, and have my stainless wheel covers too.

    Ive never seen an orange trailer before, but red trailers are everywhere. IF all your stuff is orange though and you have a red trailer, those two colors dont look real good with each other! What is wrong with black?

    what colors are in your company logo if you have one, might want to consider that...are you brand loyal...if you are running kubota or bad boy mowers orange would look great if running exmark toro i would go with red...what color is your truck...I personally run two trailers one is red and it goes with my red truck and i have one that is black and it goes with my silver truck all my equipment except hand helds are red(black goes with everything)...my company logo and shirts all have a mix of black and red in them...just my $.02.

    Many people try to paint their trailers the same color as the truck. My truck is silver, but I do not know how a silver trailer would look? It would be different! If I only used Dixies, it would look great, but all my mowers are red, well, I guess red/silver looks OK together? I would NOT go with orange for your trailer.
