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


Just purchased a 7x14 trailer with ramp doors. Anyone have any design ideas for shelving in the inside? If so.. any pictures you can throw on here would be great. I am a GC that refused to buy a trailer for years based on principle.... Well... Me emptying out the back of my truck everyday alone when my employees were late everyday got old. Thanks in advance.

The other 3 pages didn't give you enough ideas - pull a search, there are a few other threads dealing with the same stuff.

So what "principle" prevented you from buying a trailer, but still allows you to employ & accept having "employees were late everyday"?

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


This is the cleanest its been in a LONG time, had a nice April snowstorm so I got a chance to get it cleaned out. Thinking about adding a ladder rack on the roof, wondering everybodys thoughts on them. How do you access the ladders, do you built a ladder above the tongue? Or grab a step ladder out of the trailer? Thanks for any suggestions!

I put my ext ladders & alum planks on top of mine & I just grab a 6' step out of the trailer to access them. Nice trailer!

Very nice setup

For the ladders - You might try out a system like this http://primedesignracks.com/ - there are a few more out there

Quick trick for the paper towels that love to unroll completely while your moving the trailer or the doors are open & its windy - grab an empty 2 liter bottle, cut off the top & bottom & make one cut down the side - when you go to move the trailer / slap it on the roll & it won't unroll on you

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


Hey great thread, lots of cool ideas. Keep in mind your weight though. Here in Ontario the Ministry of Transport looks at "combined weight" that's your truck and trailer combined. Was at the dump last week and the scale weight was 9,240lbs. and my maximum is 10,000lbs. If I load up to start a job I'll be over for sure.

Looks good, I only have 1 suggestion. You might want to even out the load a little or make really slow right turns.

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


Why the ramp door? I just installed one of those heaters in mine that are intended to go into a 2x4 wall. Has thermostate and I plug it into a power bar, so I can't blow the customers' breaker. I know it's too early for heater, just getting ready. Trailer looks good!

Why would you get a trailer without a ramp door?
