Thanks , yes it is 8x 20 and I wish it was bigger. Would like a wide body 8.5 x 26 or 28 for the type of work I do.

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


Does anyone have a trailer with a roll-up door? I know they are on most box vans, but I haven't seen any in pics on this thread. I want to build my trailer with one for the simple fact that I won't need any clearance behind the trailer for opening or closing the doors. The only drawback that i see would be the door interfering with celing space when opened.

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


mehtwo, it's a 8.5 x 18. It's the perfect size for me right now, I like the fact that it's a wide body because I can work inside it will all my tools in there no problem.

TBF, not bad. I got it becuase I liked the quick miter adjustments and it was only $250. I don't like the bevel adjustment on it, or the fact that 12 inch blades cost more than 10 inch. That saw lives in the trailer most of the time and gets used for whatever. I use my Makita 10 inch slider for millwork.

This is the only pic I have as of now. More will come soon. I want to share my setup seeing how I've gotten plenty of ideas from this forum.

Hopefully I attached the photo correctly.

Inside the black box.

I'm still in the process of setting it up... I'll always be in the process of setting it up. For now I have the walls insulated with 1/2 ply over it and the ceiling insulated with luan over it. I just put the draws in and am looking to get a power inverter. I'm not happy with the front, but I'll get er' dialed... some day

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


WoW what a set up a lot of things in there that show your at the top of your game. The red handled Skil. Is that a Ti hammer in your Oxy bags? I see the name Makita on your compressor and some Hitachi nail guns besides the the very organized layout seems like the only thing you're missing is a AC unit

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


I recemtly purchased a 7x14 v nose with rear drop ramp and side door ( pics to follow ) .i am pre planning my trailer buildout as i type and this thread has been great for inspiration. My plan is to build free standing base cabinets on pnematic casters. What im hoping for is to be able to roll out those cabinets on site and setup shop. Also, this will allow use of the entire trailer for material and furniture and etc. I have scoured the site and haven't found anyone with a similar setup. My question is if anyone else has tried this type of setup, if so how did you like it or not like it and why.

Im planning on doing some upper wall storage for hoses , cords etc that will be easily removed when the trailer is need for other projects. In the future i would like to dedicate this trailer or a larger one just to house consumables and tools, but im just not in a place to do it yet. Thanks for any input and awesome job on the post in this thread.

You prob wont find many people who have done that because of needing access to where ever you work. If you never worked on new sites or buildings with stairs then its a great idea as you could easy move them about. Your prob better off though going with something like systainers with a dolly. that way when you do hit stairs you can take them up in sections and build them back up again.

I have looked into the systainer option also, and i like it alot. The sys 2 and sys 4 that i have now are awesome and i can see how they can speed production when used to house more tools and consumables. I had kind of hoped to incorprate the systainers in to the design of the mobile workstaions. That way if the situation arose i could just stack them and haul upstairs or wherever.

I need the organization in the trailer rather than just havving it all piled on the floor and figured the mobile work stations would be most ideal on exterior work ( decks, siding, window and door repairs, facia and sofit work , etc.) It may end up be totally not practical. Im ok with that, more reason to invest in the Systainers.

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


You guys have some awesome setups. Most of the ones I see come through here are thrashed, but that most likely why they're trading them in haha. You guys definitely know to finish off these trailers and they all look like quality workmanship. Makes me wish the ones we work on here were all this tidy inside.
