I will be buying a few Milwaukee work benches to go inside my trailer. It will save me a lot of time over building it out with plywood. I will be building the V nose to house battery bank and Inverter. I will be building one side to house sheet goods though.

Re: For Those Of You Who Work Alone

I work alone but I’m not always alone....I have kids and a wife as well as my hobbies outside of work...I bought a trailer because I I value being able to drop off a rolling shop and punch a clock at the end of the day... and not worry about dragging tools and material home and into my garage, plus the wife quit bitching about the mess that would accumulate after two or three large projects. I use a small 6x12 and it’s en to get all the necessary tools to the job and keep everything dry and safe...It also forces me to be more clean and professional, I definitely would have been ashamed to show my customers my messy garage so why would a roll it over to their driveway to look at? I tried a box truck, too much...then a Nissan NV 3500 with extra ceiling Not friendly to my personal life...And now a trailer, perfect for me.
