PitPal vs. PitProducts?

Does anyone have any experience with either company? I am looking to get some cabinets and shelves for my trailer and was curious if one of these is better than the other. They look very similar in offerings. Anyone ever used them?

PitPosse products for trailers are actually from PitProducts.

Anyhow, if anyone is interested, here are the links:

PitPal

PitProducts
http://www.pitproducts.com/cabinets.html

PitPosse
http://www.pitposse.com/trac.html

I LOVE the tire rack from PitProducts and am getting that.

Im guessing everyone will be watching/waiting for you to see how your rig is set up. Set the bar high Brian.

Brian, I have the tire rack from PitPosse and its the same one thats in the Nesba trailer. Looks like the best choice for that item. BTW, when I bought mine, it was $20 cheaper on eBay as a BuyItNow than it was on their site.

Here's a good source for smaller items. EXCELLENT quality and service. There are plenty of places selling this stuff, but the others that I've seen don't use the quality materials like Trickfab, slick welds too.

Thanks Barry!

I spoke to the PitPal and the PitProducts guys today. In essence, they both say the products are almost identical. PitProducts says that PitPal is bigger, so the only way that PitProducts can compete with PitPal is equal or better product at a little lower price.

So.. as soon as I get some more moolah... it looks like PitProducts will be getting some money from me. Love that tire rack too!

I'll check it on eBay as well.

Thanks Barry

(good luck at Putnam next week)

Barry,

Actually, I was already planning on getting some pieces from TrickFab. It is significantly stronger and nicer stuff. Thanks for the reminder, I had the printouts in the other room. Price is close to the same as well!

Geez. Great minds or twisted ones think alike? We are looking at a few of the trickfab cabinets as well. One other thing we are looking at are swing down steps for the 48" door. If you get sloppy/tired/distracted it's easy to add some extra character to your shins. http://www.pitpal.com/detail.aspx?ID=3379 Some of the pit carts on racejunk look sweet but I could get another track bike for less $$

Dave,

I am getting the TrickFab for most of the stuff. And a few odds and ends will be filled in with PitPal/PitProducts. I get the trailer the 17th. Still haven't decided on the tie down solution though.

I am thinking TrailerStops for http://www.condor-lift.com and single tie down points using l-track connectors for now. When I get more money, going back and doing L-track (4 strips) the length of the trailer.

I did find my trailer through Racing Junk, so thanks again for the referral.

Brian
