Posts 31-38 have some pics of our setup. Looking into putting a battery and invertor in it, but have to research more about it, dont know where to start with that kind of stuff.

What size of battery/invertor do you guys have, what kind of things can you run off a full battery and for how long? Im mainly looking to run chargers and maybe a couple lights.

I thought the the same thing about the inverter and battery until I used one. A 1000 wat inverter and a yellow top optima battery. Ran four lights no problem foe 15-20 hours on a charge. The problem if it was below 32deg no more power, some reason the inverter doesn't work.

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Cleve, YOU are friggin GENIUS!!! the side door I LOVE it, looks like we have about the same trailer, and the bin shelving occupying the side door is awsome. The amount of space I'm clearly not tapping into by working around the side door is going to be a major welcome. 2 questions What/where did you find the bin shelving that fits the door so perfectly, of did you make from scratch??
2: that location looks like it could be heavy(tounge weight) and imbalanced fishtailing at high speed, have you counter balanced with similar weight on other side??? genious

Re: Job Site Trailers, Show Off Your Set Ups!


Thanks for the comments Bone Saw
I got the bins from a hardware store that was retooling. They sold me the old bins at $1 each with the compartment that houses the bins. I just made a wood box that fit inside the door opening and attached the containers to the box. Close the door and the bins stay put. Still have room on the door for flat stuff like the layout square & T squares. Inside the trailer, the back of that box is another wall for putting stuff. I hang my folding sawhorses off it.

Tongue weight schmung weight. I got so much weight all over that rig it all balances out. It rides great. I replaced the axle with a 6000 lb 6 lug after the original bent with so much weight. If I had to do over, I would go tandem.
But for $400 bucks, the new axle is awesome & I can get that rig into places you wouldn't believe!!!!!
