Mike, your rig looks similar to what I used to have, but I was running a HD3/4Ton '83 Ford 4x4 w/ 460! Your 'Toy' looks a little over full!!

My hunting buddy has one , they are a good truck, (better looking / design than new larger Tundra's) but hard to find and really hold there value used. I looked for one when my '95 GM was in accident in '08.

I have been using a 5x9 trailer for the last two years. The head height is less than 5'. It sucked. I just bought a 6x12 with head height of 6'1. I have waited for this day for a long time.

Does anyone know if any of these trailors come with a sky light or a transparent roof they are always so dark inside?

Yes you can get a translucent roof on RAINBOW trailers SUMMIT line ( mine is lower line EXPRESS). They are located in Cartwright, Manitoba, Canada. check their website. I goining to nstall some insulation in the ceiling of mine and cover with either plywood & paint white or white plastic.

The problem with roofs like that is in the summer it's like an oven and in the winter it's like a freezer. Your better of putting some lights inside.

OK...Just looked through all ya'll rigs'n Chasing Dreams has my vote...but then I got to Mikes post and my entire mouthful of coffee is on my screen now...LOL.
Hey Mike..I do have to hand it to ya...yer a real workin' man and I love how you squeezed so much into so little.
Way to go brutha
Chasing Dreams..question. What are those long slots cut out for on the top level. Did I miss sumpin'?
Super nice set up. Must be a pleasure to walk into your trailer.
Edit: I don't have a trailer....yet..so I didn't post my set up but here it is anyway. Amazing how much I fit in those cabs...more than I thought I would. The materials are all left overs from different projects.

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


andybuildz,...... Thanks for the compliment. The long slots on the top are for access to material. The rack is designed to handle up to 18' lengths. If shorter lengths slide forward from the access point at the rear, the slots are for access.

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


I'm just putting all the shelves into my trailer and getting it all set up the way I want. Is anyone using solar panels on there rig to power lights and battery chargers and stuff ? I have been looking at adding them so I don't have to plug in all the time but I am not sure if it will be more of a PITA than anything else. Just looking for any help.

Thanks,

Matt

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


After looking at all of the trailers, I got some good ideas for my own. Thanks to everyone for the ideas. Here is my set-up.

Its really not as bad as I expected. I had a 12' before this one and the 24' pulls better and I can back it even easier.

Looks good Jerry. Do you live and work in rural area or burbs? I have a 16 and was thinking about going larger, but seem to be able to get mine in everywhere and can bring it home if need be.
