I was seriously considering an NPR type truck
I decided it was going to be to big of a hassle climbing in and out of all day
Plus the trailer is cheaper to own ,put permanent tags on it and an inspection every year
Still a truck has its own advantages

I've heard the Hinos are very reliable.
My next rig is going to be a NPR type truck or sprinter high top van that can tow a trailer.

Got a few hours to myself finally. Took off the ceiling. Love the aluminum look. Taking full advantage of the 80 inch interior height.

Looks good , are you going to add insulation

I insulted mine with rigid boards , makes a huge difference summer and winter. I use a small propane heater in the wintertime and itís nice to have a place to warm up.

Yes eventually it will be insulated. I'm just trying to get the wiring the way I want it.

Just test fitting a battery box. These are just cheap 35 amphr batteries from Harbor Freight. Making the box large enough to house 3 12v Li-ion batteries.

I work downtown, trailer is a deal breaker. Now I'm agonizing daily over what van to buy. Can't find a 4x4 sprinter to save my life, even went to a dealer in Montreal and found one, just to learn it was tentatively sold when we were about to hash out the deal.

Re: New Trailer Build!


Do you transport your Makita miter saw vertically like that? I just bought a new ls1019 and put it on a Bosch gravity rise. It would be nice to store it standing up but I'm worried about the stress it puts on all the various components. Trailer is looking amazing by the way.

Yes. Works out well. I upgraded to the Makita from my Milwaukee Miter because of the smaller footprint when virtical like that.

I've been transporting mine vertical for sometime, I just make sure it's not stored in the indents. Still cuts true.

Getting the nose of the trailer under control. Will house the inverter, battery bank ect. Will have my charging center and battery storage up here mounted on the wall eventually.

I don't know if those guns would stay on the wall in my trailer. It bounces more than a stripper on Friday night.

Nothing has fallen. Now in the rear of the trailer it does bounce but everything there is secure.
