    6x10 trailer ideas

    Okay so since starting my business after getting laid off I have been steady and finally picked up a trailer, 6x10 with a 2' mv nose enclosed. I was searching the internet for ideas, (pics) and didn't come up with any. I do have my own ideas but would like to hear or see what others have done.

    So if you have any ideas or pics it would be appreciated. Once mine is done I will show pics as well.

    The trailer has barn doors and one door on the side.

    mainly shelves but wanted to know if I could work in a bench. I have to work in my dewalt table saw and mitre saw, mitre saw has a gravity rise stand.

    I want to get most of my tools in there so I don't forget anything when on a job site. and maybe get my bike in there to.

    Srsly..

    Put in as much shelving you can. 6x10 isnt much space..
    Leave the floor for your Saw, compressor, Stands , buckets of nails and portable tables.
    Keep all your tools in cases or crates.
    Hanging loose and they will be on the floor when you get to the job site. It's winter, get an easy up, good for summer shade too if your working on your own. Strap it to the back of the trailer when you pop it up. It's nice to be able to leave the doors open when its raining and not get water in the trailer. (if the neighborhood allows.)
    What's your forte?

    Hope you do well.

    yeah I was gonna go with a 6x12 but was worried my liberty wouldn't tow it that well.

    I build decks, fences for outside work, and do trim and floors and small bathroom renos

    ^ Sorry brother, I'm not trying to rain on your parade. I'm really happy for you that you are out on your own now. You set the limits, you run the course. Big responsibility. Be proud!

    Right on...

    Try your best to avoid keeping leftovers, all they do is add weight, and you'll be carrying that crap around forever and never use it.
    A 6 X 10 trailer most likely wont have brakes, and it may be a good idea to get some on it. a couple three thousand pound trailer will push that short wheelbase Liberty around pretty good.
    Getting going is one thing... stopping is another.

    Fishbucket that pink trailer you posted reminds me of a story. When I was living in San Diego a buddy came through town pulling that exact trailer. He hsd it painted red and white to match his S-10 pickup truck. He stayed for a couple days visiting then drove down to Cabo San Lucas Mexico. He lived in the trailer down there for three months. Then left the trailer in Mexico and drove back to Colorado. He figured it wasn't worth hauling the POS back.
