Question not related to the build. (Beautiful build-out, by the way. )

I notice you have multiples of the same tool, like nail guns, or table saws.

Are you running a crew, or do you just use multiples for some reason?

Do I see a Keter table in there????

I have two table saws because I got a killer deal on the Milwaukee and for the price point having 2 table saws is a great convenience when cutting material and doing dados.

All my nailers are different. I have everything from a framing nailer down to a pin nailer.

I have a bunch of Milwaukee impacts because I use them daily. I have different tool kits that I just grab and go. One for electrical, one for low voltage, plumbing, ect. So multipuls of those tools are needed.

Thanks the trailer is coming along.

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


Just finished my dream trailer It is my second trailer First one was 7 x 14 x6 high. I had it nicely done but spent about a year researching and looking at lots of other contractors ideas and adding my own

Had the chance to get a reasonably priced and very good condition race track vendor trailer New trailer is 8.5 by 20 by 8 high.

Had some goals in mind.

Nicely done yet reasonable cost
Minimum moving of one thing to get to others
95% of what I needed tools and fasteners on board
Dump the factory boxes .too much size variation and no room for acc
Grab and go common used items
Increase jobsite efficiency
Provide a sharp professional image that matches sharp work

Pictures to follow as I figure it out

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


It weighs 12,500 Pounds, Trailer has two 7000# axles

Obviously a mostly stationary trailer, It tends to sit on a job site for 2 to 9 weeks Sometimes more on bigger jobs. I re did my smaller trailer for the short day or two jobs which I do less of every day

My 8.5x20 is 11,500.
A bit heavier than I was hoping for when I set it up, but it sure is nice having everything we need when we need it.

Not yet, but you never know, It was a racer vendor trailer and the benches you see in the front were originally full length with a fold up bed, I cut down a third of it to add more space for junk. The small cushion area is perfect for lunch, reading job specs, reading code books and so on But If I got me one of them fancy government jobs I could sleep all day and get paid like they do

Do you find the side window bench area is helpful or just a place for things to collect? I like the idea just not sure of the practicality?

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


This isn’t my first post I actually had to sign back up because I couldn’t recover my old password. I’ve been watching this thread for years and meaning to post the new trailer, I think you’ll like it. Is there an amount of posts you need to have before uploading pictures though? I keep getting an upload error.

I really don't let things collect, It is a habit of mine to clean up and organize my trailer and my customers job site daily

As others on here have said, How can you possibly deliver quality professional work in a safe manner when you have demo debris piled in a corner, tools all over the floor and stuff literally thrown in your trailer

With very few exceptions, I have learned thru the years that the effort a contractor puts into there own work space and job cleanliness tells me everything about the quality of work produced and the level GAS (Give a ****) a contractor brings to the job.

This trailer being used came with the vendor window. I took advantage of the window to open up each day with pre hung air reels, cord reels and quick grab tools to increase productivity.

There are exceptions. Blacktop is probably the best drywall finisher I've seen and couldn't tell you what the color of the inside of his truck is. Lol
