Here you go how about something like this.

Step 1. The trailer is in it's closed position and acts as a normal enclosed trailer.



Step 2. Jacks at the four corners lift the enclosed assembly upward and you drive the bottom part of the trailer forwards to gain access to an open trailer.



Step 3. You now can load your trailer with all the debris you need to with your open trailer.

I think you should make a blue print and build this thing and patent it

Been waiting for your trailer picture's, must be gullable tonight thought that was your new trailer. (shame on me for thinking first with out looking) looked at it 3 times before i realized it was fake. good concept though.not sure if it will take off in the market.

also read that today is the last day for the season. i will be finished up on 15 Oct. been getting a run on sprinkler blow outs. news also said there might be 48" of snow in the mountains west of the contenental divide. Snow is a coming.

Wow, good concept Steve. I have seen the landscaping trailers that are all expanded metal that has the roof open in the middle, and folds all the way around to lay flush with the sides. Then at the end of the day, they can fold them up and over, lock them, and not have to worry so much about their stuff getting stolen.

Now I want to get myself a trimmer rack and put on that right side next to the ramp. Get some letters done for my logo and slap it on my trailer... Get some Stihl, Husqvarna stickers to show the equipment that I use

I really like that side gate! I don't think I have seen a trailer that size with a gate like that! Have you used it yet? How does it work getting in and out on the side like that? Do you like it more than the back?

Yeah it's really built well, compared to my original one that I had. The original one that I had was a piece of junk from the start. You would push on one corner of the trailer and everything would move

It's actually not my trailer yet since the dealer has to pay for it if it leaves the yard so yeah, I left it there for now until I have collected my customer payment from August/September then that trailer is gonna be mine

I ordered that trailer with that side ramp. I saw this from the millionaire's trailer in town.. he has 2 side ramp trailers.
