    well it has many uses, main use will be for my atv, but it is also good for hauling building supplies, I made the back gates so you can open them up and drive with them open if you need to haul somehting such as 12' drywall.

    Cool Very Nice Job

    And of course as you know with this title there's alway's a but

    #1 why did you pick the MM251 to do the job?
    Hey what about the licence plate and the strap anchors and the front deflector did you make wheel chalks for your atv's and the trailer?the trailer tilt does it have a locking pin so when your loading your trailer doesn't move and slam down when you are loading.I know I know You build it then as time goes on you start modifing things on your trailer to suit your needs I did the same thing now having said all this I think you did no no really I think you did a good job.

    I got the 251 because I got a decent deal on it, and another reason I didn't want to eventually need something bigger so I went big right off the get go. I was planning on just using the railing to strap the quad too, What are wheel chalks?? and theres a licene plate mount just under the one light I just didn't have it mounted in the picture, when the trailer is tilted it's only away from the ground about 1/4 of an inch but it doesnt hit.

    Cool Trailer

    Wheel chalks are to stop the trailer from moving foward while you are loading
    and the same for your ATV's .Ask anybody on this forum about your machine and it is the BEST one to get I was just wondering the reason and your reasons are pretty much why I got mine well then A+ If you want I can post a pic of a set of chalks for you on monday?
