Lots of threads about building out trailers and vans.

I put a lot of thought into mine before starting. First is type of miter saw, slider, fixed or something like a Bosch glide. Second is how wide of pieces are you looking to rip on the table saw. Lots of creative solutions if you’re looking for something other than the classic Paulk design. Unique tool trailer, mobile workshop, material hauler
I’ve seen some with the table saw pulls out of the back of the trailer for cuts perpendicular to the trailer instead of into the trailer. Probably works better with swing door than ramp. Hope you have a stock of plywood for the project and don’t have to pay the current prices.. Don’t think you can go wrong with Ron’s design.

If you do mostly finish carpentry why would you want a cut station in the trailer? Only person I know who uses his miter saw in his trailer regularly is a batten installer for new homes. All his work is on the front of the house and he has a dedicated cut man prepping for the installer on the wall.

Is that a thing. Like a full time specialty?

i agree ,for my finish carpentry ,remodel and constructions tools need to be able to set up as close to the project i can get . this utility trailer is for a place where you can generally get up close to your project .also handimans dream .actually lately jobs have been in places i really need to have a close eye on my tools which would mean leaving tools all spred out at the vehicle and no huge dog to watch them would be nuts . this trailer has it's place and it is well worked out .
