Best part is you need to lock them with the key so you don’t lock you keys in the trailer.
Waiting on your bumper for you wife to bring you second set of keys gets old fast.

Or when you realize the spare keys are on the same ring as the main keys. And all the tools you need to get into the locked trailer are in... the locked trailer.

Probably bust through the door with an axe pretty fast too.

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.

Throw a dog bed in the back. I know a guy with a sprinter who has the crew van package. Throws the seats in when he hauls around the kids, pulls em out for work.

I've seen the tweakers just hook a chain to the latch and pull the door and side side panels clear off the framing.

I'm sticking with my cheap door lock.

It's just to avoid the silent bolt cutters. I can hear a grinder and it's American History X time.

I got a double pack for mine. I think I got 4keys with it too.

I did notice that since I don’t use the side door much the lock gets a bit sticky with the winter road grime

Last visit to Calgary my gas door couldn't open. It was so cold on the drive back my over drive wasn't working to protect the transmission. I guess -37 and driving 100 mph is just to cold with the wind chill.

Re: Need Advice For Small Trailers In Big City's


So how are you guys attaching tie-downs to the sides? If plywood first, how are you attaching plywood to the thin sides?

Some E-track and ratchet straps would work perfect for securing scaffolding in your trailer. Also works good for rolling table saws that stand up on end.

Also Mike where did you order your truck signage?
I’m upgrading to a service van with boxes and it needs some stickerage.

Funny toy mentioned it. I'm in the process of getting the trailer lettered. Is this graphic too big?
