Re: Enclosed trailer interior setups???

What kind of trailer do you have? How big? Some specifics might help since your configuration and size will dictate what's possible.

Re: Enclosed trailer interior setups???

I don't have any pics of the inside of my trailer but I do have some Pit Pal stuff in it.

I really like the Tie Down Hangers, Door Cabinet and there Floor Jack Mounts. Next thing I'm going to buy for my trailer is the Fuel Jug Rack. Not all my stuff is Pit Pal I found a guy at a car show that was selling stuff like Pit Pal has for a little less money.

Re: Enclosed trailer interior setups???

What do you use the trailer for? If it is just for hauling I would keep the extra stuff out to save on unnecessary weight. My trailer is used for cars and quads. A portable tool box, removable winch, and one storage box is all I have inside. My GF sold her toy hauler so we have camped a couple times for quad trips with my trailer so now I am thinking I need a bigger trailer. I might get the cabinet setup in front and add a couple folding beds an a couple windows. A cheap alternative for tie down storage is a towel rack. IMO pitpal stuff is too pricey for what it is. You can buy a pretty nice towel rack for a lot less than $28 (IMO) The one in my garage was free
A good place to look at what is out there is www.racingjunk.com and www.ebay.com to see what folks used for their trailers.

Also, where do you park it, do you store a car in it, what kind of security/lock system do you have on it, and when will you be next out of the immediate area?

Re: Enclosed trailer interior setups???

Speaking from experience. Everyones setup will differ from yours. Here is why.

1.) what are you going to put in the trailer.

2.) Using for more than one car, utility vehicle, truck, 4-wheelers etc?

3.) Tools, gear, tires, gas cans, helmets, clothing?

I would recommend getting your vehicle(s) in where you want them, tied down; place all your gear in order of importance where you want them (on the floor) and live with it for a few trips. Move things around to where they should be with your usage. (get into race gear before you pull the car out)

Then figure where your cabinets and racks need to go.. Every time we order a basic layout custom trailer, I usually hear "I wish this was there instead of over here"

Re: Enclosed trailer interior setups???

Stated another way, only you can know what's going to be useful to you. And given its basic function for you (ie hauling a car, and/or quads, etc) there's only going to be so much extra room to add things.

Trailer mfg'er websites have tons of interior pics with their various options installed. But some of the most ingenious things I've seen in trailers were homemade by the owner and were done to address a specific need.

Good luck!!
