Trailer is almost ready! Just a few odds and ends left. Can't wait to take 'er to the Snowies in a couple weeks! It will be my first time riding outside of the Midwest. Can't wait!

Trailer - United 8.5x28 Super Hauler
Flooring - Ribtrax
Heat - 2x 5KW Diesel heaters with a 7 gallon diesel tank
Power:
AC - 50A 110V service
DC - 40A 12V system with 1x 200AH AGM battery

Sleds will be secured with Super Clamps and L track.

On a side note with 2x 5kw diesel heaters the trailer can hit mid 70's for temp. Mid 60's when running just one. With a 200 aH battery and 7 gallons of diesel the trailer can be heated continuously for a few days at a time between charges. And since it's intake and vent is outside the trailer there is little carbon monoxide risk. Though I still had a detector put in. Very pleased with the turnout so far.

Nice work on the trailer!!
I have towed a 8.5 x 32 floor, United gooseneck super hauler since 2007. Has held up well. We haul 6 x 163's when going out west.
It's usually 875 miles one way. Has been a good trailer!
Good luck with yours!

Nice setup. How do you intend to get the moisture out of the trailer when heating? Can you vent those diesel heaters like the RV propane furnaces?
