I know some stock yards use things like that for making fence. Guard rails are another one. For getting into fence building, a goose neck is mandatory. If you go that route, go one step farther and get a backhoe, either attachment or complete unit later. Local fence builder has the flatbed trailer, tractor with backhoe attachment, but left regular box with side boxes for tools. He has been doing that buisiness for as long as I can remember, and has been quite successful with it. It was just him and his boys for most of the time.

I like the idea of adding boxes to the trailer, if nothing more for tie down gear. If you go flatbed and keep the boxes underneath, it does make access to things in the bed easier, but I expect you will want to raise the sides a bit, but that is easy.
