Here is the first stage of my trailer setup. I have enough done to go to work and the rest will come soon.

(I started a thread for discussion in case there was any so as not to clutter up this one with a bunch of talk)

I really like the Paulk miter saw stand. It makes setup and breakdown easy and provides a really nice spot to cut at. I think it's worth the $10 plans.

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


I finally set up my trailer. I got lots of ideas from this site. Thanks to everyone who has showed off their set ups.

The trailer is a carmate 7x14 with walk on roof and ladder racks. I love that feature. I went with barn doors to allow me to get into tighter spots. We rarely have to lift anything too heavy into the trailer anyway, and the loading height is low.

We do all aspects of remodeling but most of the work is interior and finish. Kitchens, baths, basements, built-ins, trim etc.

I store my tools in their cases in the drawers. I was conflicted about keeping the cases due to the amount of space they take up. I decided to keep them because on occasion we will load up a few tools for a small job into the truck without taking the trailer. I feel the cases help keep them in better condition.

I still have some work to do but it's a pretty good working set up now.

Looks great mark. No way I would be lifting that saw down from up there though lol.

I'm curious how much you pay for the trailer. I ain't looked at them in a long time.

Thanks.

I was concerned about The mitre saw spot to. It's not that bad though. It helps that I am about 6'4".

I picked up the trailer used. I paid around $2000 which I thought was a pretty good deal.

Looks good. One thing that you could try if you want, is drilling holes with a spade bit where the black feet are on the bottom of your saw and skipping the ratchet straps. My trailer has leaf springs which I hear is a rougher ride than torsion and it's worked great.

Although looking at the picture again, it almost looks like that might be part of what's holding the shelf up...

Yup, the strap adds some support to the shelf. The brackets are probably strong enough, I hung from the shelf to test. But I feel a lot better with the addition of the strap.

Had a similar set up in another trailer and the saw (rough saw fortunately) took a leap off the shelf because it wasn't strapped.

That's a great deal for that trailer. You prob got a $7500 setup there new.

Mark, trailer looks great. I tossed to cases to save room. My truck has side boxes which I keep pretty loaded as well. The boxes cost me about 3.5 mpgs: I went from 11.5 miles per gallon to 8. Sucks

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


My brother and I are college students working part time and during the summers. As our tools have increased in number and value$$$ it was time to step up from working out of the back of my 1500 GMC sierra. Picked up this '03 6x12 Haulmark Transport off a guy on CL this week. Cant wait to deck it out with a paulk bench and shelving

Be very careful with weight in that. I had that trailer when I was starting out and in college. You can only put 1000 lbs in it. So not much
