Job site trailers, show off your set ups!
 
The posting of current job pictures is a great thread, I thought I would start a new thread for members to post interior and/or exterior shots of their job site trailers. I have an ulterior motive, since I am picking up my new 16 x 7 tomorrow, and need some more ideas on how to fit it out. :thumbsup:

Picked up the new trailer yesterday....16 long, 7 wide, 6-1/2 tall....and the ladder racks they installed really suck! I am going to lower them and cap them....nice pulling trailer.

The step van in the background is available for $1000!

No rear ramp door?

Joasis 11-27-2008 01:22 PM

I didn't want a ramp...I could have had the trailer the day I ordered it if I would have taken a ramp style, but I wanted the swinging doors,,,maybe down the road, I will regret it, but I don't care for our other trailer, which has a ramp. I can keep a short ramp for loading the table saw and stuff....plus, I can hang cords and the like on the doors. Working on how I will lay it out today....get some AC ply this weekend and get after it.

I see, all my tools are on wheels, including my brake. The rear ramp makes it more convienant to me. I see about hanging stuff on the doors, but I dont hang anything in the trailer, I haul some really expensive cabinets and trim and stuff falling off the walls always scares me.

Ah...the sweet smell of a new empty trailer to fit out.

I'm never happy with the way mine come out, but I'm too lazy to readjust, so I just keep dealing with a bad layout.:laughing:

Good luck with it.

How about a pic of that step van

Cole 11-27-2008 02:34 PM

Jay, did you get a good deal on the trailer?

I am looking for a new one as well.

Joasis 11-27-2008 03:02 PM

$4600 in Tulsa...I think they have a dealer in your area also. Trailers Plus. I passed on the drop axles and ramp door, the only "option" I took were the ladder racks...I guess a good deal would be $4400 without racks.

I do not know how to post the pics but i put them in the photos part of the site.
I took them with the Iphone so they kinda suck, my trailer is not clean:censored: and it was left unlocked all night, my workers suck!!!

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.
