Trailer Set Up


Hello all, just purchased a brand new 6x12 duel axel trailer with "v" nose. Any good ideas or pics on set up would be helpful. I am a carpenter & have a few ideas but open to suggestions.

Will do. I pick up the trailer in the middle of next week & want to have a clear plan in place by then. :-)

Looks good.

If you're anything like me, in 3-4 months you'll tear out a section and re-do it. And then in another 3-4 months, you'll tear out another section and redo it. And then in another 3-4 months.....

Re: Trailer Set Up


Hey there, where did you get the fold up hand cart/dolly thing in the front there? What do you think of it?

In my area, home depot & lowes both carry them. They're about $35.00. I looked at a bunch and decided on the Milwaukee brand @ the depot. Felt it was a little heavier constructed.

I carry toolboxes on mine into customer's homes. Works nice for me.

Not sure what you mean by that.....it's got dual axels and there's hardly enough weight in there to shake a stick at. Unless I'm missin' somethin'.

The original post said something the axles being in a duel. I guess I took it literally.

Did it cost as much from them as the trailer?
