Very nice setup Bobby. In my Sprinter, I mount the ladders on the ceiling, but your ladder keeps the boxes & stuff from shifting around. A false floor w/ drawers would do you fine, but then your ladder would not stand up straight?

6 footer is gone, replaced with fiberglass little giant. Heavy as can be but not as heavy as the 6 ladders it has replaced.

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


lol, sometimes my ranger gets a little out of hand....like tonight...here she sits waiting for morning. There is material under everything in the bed as well....normally I am not as packed as this, I am able to bring things as I need them and set up for the work, this time however I have a framing inspection I am standing in for....the inspector will be there from 9-4. Gee thanks for narrowing down that time slot, so I had to take things to keep busy if he does not show untill four.


My next step is going to be an enclosed trailer so when this happens its not such a feasco....

Right angle drill with extension, never climb a ladder with a Hole Hawg again. No not Asian, just an old nickname.

I got both types from lowes. If i remember correctly they are made by Stanley. But there are many other rebadges of the exact same boxes so you could have seen them in HF. Prob a lot cheaper in there too lol

Cheers Dave. I cant handle a messy work vehicle and have to be able to find what im looking for and know where every part is on the trailer. Makes getting through the day a little easier.

very nice trailer setup. I wish I could set something like that up around California, it's very difficult to tow or find parking for a truck and trailer combo around here.

Gets tight around here also. Def couldn't have used a setup like this back when i was living in the UK. You should have seen me try and reverse this thing when i first got it. Was the first ever trailer i pulled lol. Would have kept you entertained for hours.
