You can buy extra arms for $20 a pair. I love that I can just pull any bin out without moving the other 9.

Re: New Trailer Build!


I'm debating on if I should put a spot for sheet goods 4'x8' in the area marked. I dont always have to carry the sheet goods but ai will be using the space for a Paulk station or my a frame ladders.

Otherwise I would just use the space for a smaller Paulk station and ladders.

Shove it in the middle on an 'as use' basis.

Re: New Trailer Build!




I love mine.

Having a piece of OSB is always handy.

I do small jobs, often using only one sheet. I had a sheet of hardy board in there for about a month before I finally got to the job and installed it. It’s nice having a remnant of drywall for a drywall patch or an attic hatch.

I had two pieces of T1 11 for a job in there for a week or two. It’s nice to have it out-of-the-way.

If I have four or five sheets , and I am headed directly to the job,I put them in the middle.

It only takes up 6 inches.

Re: New Trailer Build!


I vote for a sheet goods storage area , I didn’t make one for my trailer and wish I had . When working on sites with out a dry area for storage , it can be a pain to drag all the crap out of the center aisle . It can get cluttered with off cuts and parts quickly.

Of course a sheet storage spot will get cluttered too , only everything wont be underfoot

Re: New Trailer Build!


Thanks everyone for your input. I think I'm going to go ahead with the storage for sheet goods..Main reason is I'm still putting a spot 3' high by 18" wide for Paulk station. Might as well just add a 1'+ so I have the option to store sheet goods.

Re: New Trailer Build!


Make sure to give yourself a bit over 48”. 54”ish would be perfect.

I will be having a garage for my table saws and miter saw on top of the built out area for sheet goods so I am thinking 50" high. It will be a tight fit for sheet goods getting them in but I dont want to have to hoist large tools to high to get them in place .

Re: New Trailer Build!


I added one of these bench clamps about 9ft in my trailer. Turns out it makes it much easier to keep sheets from falling all over if you store them in the middle.

Re: New Trailer Build!




I’ve been happy with this feature.


I had a void to use after I figured out my level storage.

The unistrut makes a handy anchor for bungies or ratchet straps to hold a window or a pressure washer.

Re: New Trailer Build!


Very nice , you will finish your trailer before I finish mine , and I had a huge head start .

I made the mistake of using it before I finished it . Still love it , wish I did it years ago .

I only need to do some shelves , like the one in your last post and the nose area. I didn’t finish the nose because I was entertaining the idea of a restroom. It seems like too much hassle the more I think about it
