    stupid question but i have noticed most of you put your racks on the left side (if yourfacing rear of trailer). wouldnt it make sense to put them on the door side. it would make them easier to get when needing something. just something i noticed when browing throught the pics.

    My whips are on the door side but on the other side i have my backpacks by rear door and toward the front i have a chainsaw rack with pole saw on it above the saws. For me it is still hard to get to my whips without the back door open because i keep a 72 Dixie there. On most of my jobs we do not even use the side door, too easy to walk in the back since it is already open.

    I didn't even think maybe guys with smaller trailers do. My trailer is 20ft and they fit great on the door side.

    I made a custom rack that hangs from the ceiling of my 2005 h&h 18'er. I made mounts for 3 trimmers and put them off to the curb side. It frees up a lot of wall space and has worked really well. If interested in pic's-let me know. It was real easy to make- one of my first welding projects.

    Mine were on the door side on my 18' and they will be on my 22' as well.
