Yeah I don't carry everything that his "smart" trailer does and mine is 7x16 so I figured a modified "art" system will work best for me.

Re: New Trailer Build!


When I bought my trailer last year,a 7x16 also,I broke my wrist.
The wrist needed surgery and I was out of commission for a while.
Since I couldn't work on the trailer, I scoured the internet for ideas
I found Ron Paulk's videos and liked his concepts.
If I could do it over, I'd probably use more shelves and less drawers,I have 31 drawers,34 counting the 3 letter long ones.
In the process of researching my trailer build I discovered "Contractor Talk"a happy accident

Re: New Trailer Build!


Only drawback to my new trailer is my tired old 2500 express is not quite up to the task of towing the beast. I guess I gotta find another truck.

Paulk's setup may work for him but I think it's ridiculous.

Not a bad idea for track storage. How do you plan to keep it in place?

It shouldn’t go anywhere, provided the front has a stop.



I really dig the painted ceiling and walls. Brightens up the cave a bunch, I imagine.

The front has a stop. The rear has the ramp if I accelerate to fast. It hasn't moved yet.

Happy to report back that the drawer locks worked like a champ.
Just got back from an out of town job over a hundred miles away and didn't lose one drawer

What are you planning to run the 12s in?

I think they are to heavy for drills and drivers personally
