my new rig

Just picked up my new trailer last night.

United 6x12 V-nose. barn doors on rear and side door. built in shelves and tool box. excellent tie down system, i dont know the name for it.

I still have to get her all set up for my needs; two big bikes and a fiddy, plus hope to install floresent lights and a few outlets for laptop power and other needs. Over this next week i'm gonna install my Condor stand and some other stuff so i can get more stuff in it. Also gotta get a trans cooler installed on my Jeep too.

This is one of the best/ cheapest E track sources I have found.

I think I ordered about $100. worth of ring tie downs for our trailer. You use them eveywhere to hold everything.

Where do you all buy your trailers. This is very nice and I am uber jealous. I'm looking to get a small enclosed 5X8 that can still fit into a garage, but I'd like it to have a rear ramp. I have no idea where to go to buy one.

Your most common size trailers are 6x10, 6x12, and 5x8's. A ramp door on a 5x8 would be odd. So, if you really want something like that, you're going to probably look for new.

Since those sizes are so common, they also go for a lot of money used. So, buying a new one isn't bad because you'll get most of it back when you sell it. But, if you can work a deal on a used one, you might sell your trailer for what you bought it for down the road...maybe more.

The mark up in trailers is pretty small. Well, MSRP is high, but dealers usually sell $200 to $400 above cost with freight, and freight does have to be paid.

Then there's the quality of trailers. It varies widely. Different lights, thickness of exterior aluminum, distance between "studs", axle types, etc. It's mind boggling.

Often racing message boards have trailers.

the nesba and wera forums always have them for sale. To bad my car can't handle that much weight.

Looks good Alex. Maybe mount a tv screen to show your tranny surprise video. Also it would help if you or tony get a clock for us.

Just wondering, why did you go barn door style instead or ramp?

Alex and I both have clocks. I even had the party ball at the last BHF event, if you were there instead of micky mouse land you would have seen that.

you can't see it, but on the wall on the left there is an Atomic clock that even has temperature.

barn doors are better, cause you only use the ramp 2 times? per weekend, then its always in the way, barn doors allow a sitting place, and you can back up the trailer right against an easy-up for even more shade and convenience. plus, the extra wall space for storage.

+1 everyone thinks you NEED a ramp door, when they just get in the way. My truck and trailer is over 40' long and I need all the room I can get behind it. I put my EZup right up to the trailer for more shade.

That's good thinking what do you use for a ramp then? Just a wide board with a metal hook on the end, or is there something specific I should look for.

I'm thinking that the barn door style isn't a bad idea at all since then you can put things on the inside of the rear doors for storage.

Pep Boys is where I got mine. Foldable aluminum ramp about 7' long and 12" wide. Folds in half and is great for loading a bike onto the trailer. Inexpensive too.
