My enclosed trailer

7x12 cargo mate. I built the shelf for the front out of 2x4's and a nice piece of oak and installed a small piece of wood strip across the front to act as a ridge so things wouldn't slide off. I installed 4 recessed d-rings in the floor to position 2 bikes side by side. I have (as you can see) a baxley chock that holds my Ducati on the right and a pingel that holds either my pitbike (pictured) or my yz125 on the left.

e-track on the left wall give me adjustable mounting points to strap my easy-up, tent and chairs in place so they don't move around, and my rams for loading and unloading are strapped to the right wall via some e-track as well. since these pics were taken I have also added a pitpal 2 helmet holdinger shelf on the left wall where the jackets and leathers are in this pic, and I added a small cabinet underneath that with drawers to store stuff.

I picked up a gel battery as well last week that I am going to wire in to the internal 12v lighting so my lights actually work. right now they only come on when the trucks running which is useless. I am also going to install more lighting on a dimmer and a stereo once I get the battery install complete.

I also bought this trailer with a RV style side door latch so i can sleep and live in it on the weekends at trackdays or camping by the trails.

I tow all of this with my 06 Tundra double cab.







HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I would suggest changing the locks on the doors so Bill and Ken can't lock you in at night.

Is the wheel chock bolted to the floor when you are traveling with the bike? It sounds like you secure it from the front and the rear.
