Well thats cool for you since it will match your lettering like you said. My trailer is all black, I am designing a front rack for storage and such, when that is done I will install 24x24" signs there on each side.

Default ranting and raving

I was just ranting and raving about this yesterday!! I would say that 99.99% of my 2 cycle wear and tear comes from being on the racks. These do look like they'll solve quite a bit. I use a smaller trailer, 10' with single axle and I live in Maine (pot holes, frost heaves, etc.) so my trailer is f****** airborne half the time I'm driving! ** (I self censored) ** I'm thinking these will help with the bouncing ** These things get shaken so much that when I look in the rear view mirror, it looks like the engine is going to get ripped right off the shaft ** Has anyone seen those new trimmer racks that have the "boxes" on them ????

Yeah I got 1 rack installed, i have to drill holes through the side rails and it ain't easy. I need a bigger drill (will borrow my dad's hammer drill so I can do the rest)

My trimmer rack is installed, I have the spool rack (for trimmer line) and the hand tool rack to install.

Be patient, i will get you guys pictures when it's all done, and with the letters and new signs. It will look sharp

I just bought the trailer rack system. Its awesome. I love everything about it. They solved all the problems that I was having. I guess my only question is what do I do with the old ones?
