those little supports you have shown are really not going to help much .You need more support foreward and back as those are the biggest forces when rolling down the street .You have basically a 4 foot lever with a fourty pound load on it ,swaying fore and aft as you drive down the road ,it wont last and can damage your equipment or even fly off and kill someone .

Here's My Trailer.This was the day I got it, I have added a tool rack on the Curb Side and a tool box on the tongue and had the tail gate center filled in.
I am going to make a Side rail boxes for my Blower, Chainsaw and fuel cans.

If you are like me you will be wishing for a bigger trailer in a couple months.

I don't like the racks or where they are mounted. They shouldn't allow the trimmers to turn like that and I don't see a way to lock the racks.

if your talking about locking my trimmers, there is a lock at the bottom. middle bar swivels around with 4 bars on top, go over shaft. on bottom, this same piece meets a hole where you can add a lock.

personally, i like where they are, just needs to be more secure. still working on getting material to make this happen.

remember, it has not left the garage since i got all this 3 weeks ago. i have no accounts. still working on business cards.
