That's an impressive trailer you have there. The half dump with a side gate for the mower is very smart. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks. it took me about a year to build it because I was using it while I was working on it. I've been redesigning it for years though. It's almost turned into a hobby. Lol. It's just about too heavy for the Chevy now!

Nice work!
I think I'd change it's name to 'Primary WORK Trailer' though.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Lol! No, I haven't made it that far yet but you never know. The red tank is fuel for equipment. The black tank next to it is an old Toro walk behind mower fuel tank that feeds the 2 stroke generator (under the black tank) I built for the outlets through out the trailer. the black tongue box houses the compressor and tool charging station. The generator is a derivative of a 800w harbor freight unit which I modified to run at about 2200w. It works perfect for the shop lights and tools on the the truck and the 4 gallon tank means it runs for months on one fill. Another cool thing is that back gate actually has switchable hinges so it can drop down as a gate. The metal box is on rockers so it pivots as the gate drops this way the box stays up right no matter what.
