Three of them, that is. They don’t make much of a wall, but together with the wheels and hitch, they are mobile walls!

When I inherited this trailer from my mom, I had to put new lights on and rewire it before we could bring it home. I also had to add new safety chains and re-secure the jack. To make it a bit more useful for hauling dirt and doing lawn-related duties, I grabbed a couple of sheets of treated plywood and enclosed the sides. I was enclosed before, so it already had countersunk holes in the rails for wood screws. All I had to do is widen the holes a bit for the screws I had on hand.

Next steps are to clean up the rusty spots and give it some paint. I’ll just slide it in with all the other chores I need to do this summer.
