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


So on the way back from a job and this is my luck. The best part is I have been waiting 5hrs. For a tow truck and still no truck. Apparently its not easy to tow a trailer with a ladder rack and loaded with tools. Thers one company I my aera that can do it and im on the waiting list

Same thing happened to our Familey's single axle. Axle snapped and trailer hit the deck. Trailer still runs but it messed it up pretty bad. Towing the trailer back cost them 4x more than upgrading to dual axles would have cost lol

I found this online surfing. I could see this as a great selling tool as well as a tool trailer- if it was a little longer.

Mainly because of weight, and it saves a little room, anyone else go this route, or even use steel studs to frame out their storage/work area. I would worry about it bending if it wasn't sheeted. Let me know what y'all think.

Just hit reply , go to advanced and attach from camera roll or attach from camera as your taking pics.

I did mine all out of 3/4 ply.

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


Thanks huck, never thought about thick ply. I already finished my shelves and after work I'm gonna start on a bench/miter table/ out feed table. I scored some brand ne laminate counter top, and it's white (same color as the trailer) so that was a score. How do you guys hang stuff? I've been using 3 1/2 inch deck screws, but if y'all know a cheap hook that's worth a s*** let me know.... And one more thing do any of y'all use cork board on your walls?

Irishman, only hook that is worth anything is the ones I made with 2x and 1" dowel drilled in 30deg. I also have a section of cork over my desk in the trailer.

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


These are the best I found upto yet. They mount into the ply very very with the drywall anchors. Pre drill a 3/16 hole first though and back them in and and about 3 times to seat them.

They come in numerous different sizes

I also installed a 48" plug in fluorescent light that really gets the job done. I've been working (5) 12s and it's hard to get this thing finished but I'll snap some pics and upload tomorrow. Thanks Fellas.

I have had chains on all four before.

John do you chain up only the front or the rears too. Need to be care if only chaining up fronts. If front gets to jumping you can tear a front end out. Just a word to the wise.

Nice we got over that last cold spell and things are warmer now.

Like shown in this pic?

(Note: I have abandonded the use of the cord reels and completely re-worked the shelving on this side of the van box. These are just some old pics of using PVC pipe as holders.)

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


Hello forum.
I wanted to ask about a used dumpster trailer I'm about to purchase.
He told me a Bill of sell would be all I need to take it to BMV and have it weighed, registered and tagged to get in my name. Is his paper(I think he said notarized) all I need to be on my way?
As far as I know...It has no kind of title. And, he's at a LOT of his business (parking his other trailers) so, I don't feel he's shady about the deal...So to speak.
I thank you in advance for some advice.

May want to put your location in your profile. That way somebody that lives near you might better answer.

It's different everywhere from state to state.

Call your local DMV. They'll know the legal answer.....
