Default Trailer Products?

So now that I have ordered my trimmer racks, I'm interested in getting a few for the gas cans and blowers....

Any good recommendations?

I'm also looking for a banner of some sort to put on the back of my ramp (advertising purposes).


AND, I'm sick of Vistaprint door magnets. I was proud of them for awhile, but to be honest they don't last more then a year. They start to peel like the skin on a hard-boiled egg. I've used 8 magnets already and they've all gone to crap (not ready for vinyl) - suggestions?

They all seem very interesting, but how do you attach them to the trailer? Any ideas?

Everything includes mounting hardware, but I bet it just mounts to the floor LOL.

Try buildasign. They do magnets that have last me since 2008, I got new ones this year so I could have the logo on them, they are thick and never come off or move around, and I find they do not fade. I recommend them. Also try going with a corroplast sign on the back of the ramp. I use big washers and hex screws to attach.

I don't know. Maybe send them an email and see what they say? Let us know what you go with.

I have the trimmer rack the backpack blower rack from this site and also the rake tool rack, I love them, I comes with hardware but you have to drill in your trailer. It comes with nuts and bolts after you drill.

If you have a hand held blower stay away from the Jungle Jim rack. It is awkward to use and poorly designed.

I like the rest of their products I have though.

Have you tried others that work better for a blower?

Nice set up Paineless. What brand of trailer is that? I like the tall sides on it.
