Well I can't wait to hear your reaction on using the side ramps! I like the concept a lot.

They are jealous and so am i, nice trailer, i can see the New ZTR you are getting sitting on the back and the push mowers on the side ramp. what make that trailer convenient, when you pull up to the job site and need the push mowers all you have to do is drop the side ramp and start mowing, instead of moving equipment around.

Yup, that's why I got it custom ordered just for that. The ramp is on the right side, so all I have to do is pull up to the curb and just do my job with the side ramp.. don't even have to touch the back (if i have small lawns of course)

http://www.jdjtrailers.com/ - Website to the company that makes the trailers, they got a big name out there now. Their tough, and they don't rust

I plan to get a trimmer rack installed next to the side ramp so that everything is on the right hand side/curb. I plan to get the Xtreme racks from http://www.trailerracks.com/

They look like awesome racks, and get myself a line spool rack for my 3lb roll of line

i have put a lot of thought in to this, but not done it yet, i have a 24ft long cargo trailer, that i plan to sell 4ft x4ft space on the sides of the trailer along the front 1/3 and rear 1/3 the middle and the tail gate are mine (Prime Areas). first i will put a sign in the area's that are for rent "advertise your company here call xxx-xxx) then i would go to some business are ask if they are interested in getting there name around town for x $$ a month,also tell them that their business will be in front of 1000s of potential customers 5 days a week 8 hrs a day. In the contract state they provide the lettering. Also your lettering should be bigger so your company stands out. you could put 4x4(or what ever size you deem fit) metal panels that are removable, that way you can still work while the signs are being prep.
