    Talking to a mate about needing a new shed or repair on mine said he had something that would do the job his brothers old one that needed moving - so have a look at trailer galvanised braked commercial box trailer big so decide to buy it - so towed it home and it is actually a market trader trailer or the same as a catering trailer - so now have a decent storage container cheaper than i can buy a crappy cheap shed (y)(y)

    We need a photo to help us decide who gets the funster support on this matter.
    A scruffy trailer in view of the road may blight the neighbourhood.

    if all you're going to use it for is as storage/shed, brilliant, why not cover it in trellis and grow something like climbing roses, honeysuckle or clematis just to pretty it up and please your good lady, am trying to sort out a shed for myself and that would be an ideal solution except i wouldn't get it through my garden gate, sadly...

    i'd be well chuffed with that for just £100, sheds are damned expensive these days for one that isn't a piece of crap..

    edit..in fact, back in the summer my daughter and her chap erected one in mine that i bought from one of those diy supermarket stores, not until it was up and the evening light was fading could you see how many holes were in it, looked like woodworm had partied in it, it got took down the next day and my 'pennies' refunded
