    I'm sure they are options. I doubt many dealers stock them installed, since many people shopping for small trailers shop price and not features. They were standard on my current trailer, I tried to get them to delete them since I don't load or unload my trailer with any type of equipment.

    My 20' trailer came with screw down jacks on each back corner. Not only very useful when loading the trailer, but also very nice to change a flat tire. We had a flat when moving my daughter and it was very fast to change it.

    Whoa, I was wondering how a boat played into it. That's scary.

    Thanks for the photos of your light setup. I've been struggling for a way to mount lights, and you've shown me how. Much appreciated. (I don't know why my dealer even showed me the oem light switch since I have a fel. LOL.)
    If only I'd known then what I know now...except none of this existed back then.

    Nice job on the trailer and ROPS lights. Might have to add something similar to my trailer, though a BX weighs considerable less than your rig. I just carry some jack stands for now.

    lew, Youre welcome....FYI, I went to tractor supply and bought a piece of metal 3" wide and long enough to be bent on each end and attached to the rops by u bolts. Once the bends were made (using a vise) I drilled the holes for the lights then sanded and painted the metal kubota orange, then put it all together. I put two rocker switches on the right side fender because holes were already there for an optional handle (you usually ony get the left handle since you cant easily get off to the right on a L3200). Anyway....it worked great and to me looks like factory. No holes in rops either, so warranty isnt effected (big debates about that on here by the way). Good luck with your set up. If I can help out just hit me up. Pappasmurf out!
