As much as I don't want to, I'm going to be getting a 6x10 or 12. My guys are on my ass for hauling tools in and out of my truck.

So what your hauling in/ out of truck. You've been doing it this way for how long? What's changed? What's broken? You always staged and left tools to there till done.. right?

This one of the main reasons I need a trailer. I just don't have the space at home. It's a portable storage unit. I also want to add a bucket at the least for some place to do my business. Really tired of loading up tools to go to washroom at some gas station turns in to an expensive poo.

My brother had a rv that was also a toy hauler and used for a framing crew. Was awesome because it could haul tools, be the office, the washroom and a lunch trailer. Not cheap but it did it all.

Who makes good door locks and hitch locks? I'd like them all keyed the same.

Get a Megahitch vault pro for the hitch,
Been keeping my dump trailer safe for 2 years.
Don’t know about door locks.

Try Ron Paulks e-store on his video series , he has a link for the door locks and hitch vault.
Good looking trailer ,good luck,
Charlie

The door lock is almost a waste to get a good one. A cordless grinder will go through the latch real fast.

Check out these locks. https://equipmentlock.com
I saw these at an equipment show and they seem extremely well made.

Is there such thing as a lock that can't be cut with a cordless grinder?

Hahaha I hear ya. Couple issues with van tho.
Another insurance payment.
No room for my dog when I got my helper.
The price of vans are crazy here cause people are living in them.
A 10x 6 can hold alot more for dump runs. Was thinking I could even fit fence panels in it.
I was going over my job site address and it's not too bad for parking with a trailer about 1 out of 10 are pretty much a headache for a trailer but do-able with dropping the trialer in a parking spot.
As for the lumber yard they can just forklift it to me so I dont have to drive around.
My minds made up going out of the city to get my trailer next week.
I got air bags, hitch and all wired up.
Worst case I leave it at home.
