I've got an 18 ft dovetail trailer and I need to mount a tire rack/toolbox on the front. I'm looking for some ideas. Post your pictures of your trailers. Non-inclosed.

I'm over in the desert right now, I took some angle iron I got from work and made a rack similiar to the one they built in circle track a while back. I don't have any pictures, but I used their idea and just modified it to fit my trailer. I built a platform for the top for the kids and crew to sit on too. Real easy and cheap.
I bolted it together first before welding it. That let me get angles and everything in the right position and then I was able to take it off there and weld it up. I made hooks to go over the tie down spots on my trailer and bolt those in place so if I need to do something with the trailer without the rack, I can.

I had one that I built out of 1"x2" thin wall that was 6' tall by 42" deep and bolted to the trailer instead of welded. Worked very well until a kid borrowed my trailer and rolled it. If it wasn't in a mangled heap I would take some pics for you.
