Default enclosed trailer tips now with pictures

hey I have done a few upgrades to my and other trailers. what have you done?

one inexpensive upgrade is to add cubical shelfs for storage. You know the kind that have the front door you lift and slide back across the top. bolt them on and add a plate to the top to kee stuff from falling out when you open them. they work great!

another is use tread mill belts to cover the gaps when the doors are openI hold them down with 2" aluminum strips keeps the snow out or at least its easy to remove.



here are some other upgrades, the best is the flurescent lighting (6 four foot lights) and electrical outlets. I do all the sled maintenance in the trailer. the next is the work table.




what are your upgrades?

I like the belts over the door gap idea. Good one.

On an old trailer I put down ski guides and then filled in between with 1/4 inch plywood. It would work good for protection from studs if you needed it but for me it worked great because it kept the floor mostly flat so I didn't stumble over the guides and it makes sweeping a lot nicer.

I agree, thats a good idea to cover the gaps when the door is open, I hate it when ice builds up in there!!

Using ski skins was the best money I have spent on the trailer. Ive painted the floor twice with an oil based deck stain and the walls with Ultra White interior trim paint , it still looks great . Looking back I should have had the trailer insulated .

some will disagee with me on this but I wont pain my foor or put any coating on it.

I think the floor needs to breath to get rid of absorbed moisture from both sides top and bottom.

My clear plywood is 6 years old with an average of 20 uses a season no bubbles or anything. I think paint/coverings are a waste on trailers and cause more problems than they cure.

If you stain or paint or put bedliner on your floor arnt you sealing the plywood. how would moisture get to the wood so why would you need to let dry wood breathe I have put a couple different coatings on trailer floors and they all stand up very good

Post Floor breathing question

The deb liner still aloows most of the floor to vent air under it because of the ridges and how it is made.

I used marine grade plywood, rolled out undercoating on the bottem and sides of the plywood and then put it down, and painted the topside with a cheep oil based paint. I repaint every other year looks like new all the time. seven years on this floor. I ripped the first floor out after one season..
