    What is the perfect 10’ or 12 foot trailer what options and features would you add to it
    The options that I want to get on my new trailer but I don’t think I will be able to afford all of them are… rear and side gate, bulldog coupler, 2’ expanded metal sides, the lights to be surrounded by steel so that they don’t brake so easily, have jacks in the back like the large car haulers do, trimmer traps, lots of tie down points, the biggest axle possible, step side type finders, washers like what the big-tex trailers have on the tongue so that the safety chains can clip on to them when it is not hooked up to the truck, a longer tongue for easier backing up, the top rail to be tube not angle iron, the top rail is also an air tank, I think that’s it but once I got it I think that there would be more that I would want to add.

    ya I know I would have to have it custom built I’m thinking of just getting a big tex with 2' sides with a side and rear gate and just add things on as I get money
    But what I was wanting to start is like people saying what they think is the "perfect" trailer
