Default New Trailer Finally Set Up

I got my new work trailer last weekend and managed to set it up about 90%. I still need to add some shelves in front of the work bench but it works for now. The inside panelling came white, so I just painted the shelves white. The bench folds down when needed, too.

Hey! LOOKS GREAT! And it's all so SHINY!! (I like your truck, too~ )

So....are you going to stay with the lighting that came with the trailer or are ya plannin' on puttin' in some flourescents?
Just curious ~ Was just thinkin' that ya might need somethin' with a little more wattage - I know those trailers get dark
inside. ;?

Nice setup!!!

Sweet.....let's see how long those shiny tires stay shiny. Add a few cross braces to the legs under the table on the LHS and you have a rack for carrying some studs around.

You just didn't miss a beat with that first picture now did you..........Armoral tires and all. Although you
should have closed the truck door.

Very nice looking rig!!!!!!!!

************************************************** ********************************

Me personally, I would have insulated that trailer so condensation wouldn't be a problem.....I hate seeing rusty tools.
Those ladders would become damnnnnn ladders awfully quick in my books, there isn't anything worse then having to walk
over them or have to move them every time I walk in there!
I would have also provided provisions for sheet stock, but maybe you've got that figured out too?

Nice rig , ignor farmer jane [ jane you cant hang that kind of light , as the trailer flex's the bulbs break or fall out .

Now for some more basic lighting try some rope lights run all around over head.

Welder if your FJ's dad, maybe you should explore why FJ knows so much about the inside of trailers and how dark they can be !

FWIW - Regarding the ladders. I have seen plenty of contractor trailers that have installed hooks on the side of the trailer to store ladders. The guy that renovated our house used some hooks and a simple cable lock (the cable went into the trailer, around a support post and back out again) to secure the ladders to the trailer.

I like the rope light idea. I'll have to look in to that further.

The bench legs fold up into the maple bench and then the bench folds down against the wall allowing for 5' of clearance from left side to the face of shelves. ThreeV's Harley should fit in there nicely, too. [img]../images/emoticons/kidding.gif[/img]

As for condensation, it's no worse then a garage or large tool box. Signage goes on this week.

That was exactly my point! I know my climate is no where near as harsh as yours, but come spring and fall it can get
downright sickening to walk into my unheated shop and see everything dripping with condensation and I mean dripping wet.

Looks great, the only thing I see that I would add is a big arse fan blowing in the escape door and out through the rear for when you are using the work bench, it doesn't matter how well ventilated a trailer is, it get's hot in there in the summer.

You may also want to consider these instead of the rope lights:

Expensive, but effective.

IMO rope lighting is only mood lighting and will not prove effective for task lighting.

I like those. I'll have to look into them a little further.

Welder, I already have a sub-panel fabbed up and ready to go. [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Nice trailer. Is that the permanent location for the ladders or temporary?

As for the lighting - one of my subs has the most unique lighting idea for his trailer (which works very well) - a dentists lamp which he picked up at auction.
