Default Need some input/ideas

Guys, I'm tweaking and putting a fresh coat of paint on a heavy duty 18' utility trailer. Primary use is to haul a car to the track at Holt also to haul a small tractor/backhoe. I've taken it down to clean metal and I want to do any welding/custom work now... need to know what tweaks would make for a more effective utility trailer. Bought a winch this morning will go on the tongue with some/numerous welded eyes and sheaves to fair-lead the wire in various directions. Also planning on adding a tool box to the tongue, may even add a 24" dove tail.

What else would you add to a utility trailer? How about color; JD Green, Black, CAT Yellow?? Thanks in advance.

A spare tire can always come in handy.

Come see me if you need new treated lumber for the deck of the trailer. I've got some #1 2x10x16P.T. at a very good price.
