Sorry Tommy but that is just way too organized and tidy! I wouldnt be able to find a thing. :laugh: Nice set up.

Question: Does K-----r provide you with a monthly cheque for all of that advertising?

James, I would say our relationship is mutually beneficial. Kichler has been very supportive in both the TV shows I have done and in many other ways. Directly pay me for advertising, no. But I don't have any reservations in promoting them either. In my book it is an old school relationship, not unlike the one I have with my distributor, and many other people, companies, and such that I work with. It is the way it used to be over 25 years ago. loyalty to a brand, a store, a restaurant, employees is my book good business. Obviously those people, companies, etc. have to meet my needs generally speaking with products and service, and in return they earn my loyalty.

is everything bolted to the floor? have you ever thought of using a service body bed for the truck for more storage? Very nicely done, i know it is a ton of work to design it and get everything set up.

Yes, everything is bolted to the floor, and some cases locked down to reduce theft. It took me 3 long days start to finish. It took us most of that time trial fitting and adjusting so it made sense. When the back ramp door is open quite a few people stop and ask questions, so it helps sales too.

Curious, What type of questions are asked?

Tommy, no offense, it's so clean and stark it looks like a doctor's exam room. What's in the boxes man? In my opinion, there is almost nothing on there to get projects done. No sexy cool toys or innovative tools. I love looking at other rigs and setups but I feel unsatisfied with this one. Sorry to be a stick in the mud.

Here's a few pics of my trailer

Yeah, I try to have everything I might need so I never have to leave jobsites if I dont have to. You can't see in the pics, but I have a microwave on lower shelf and even have those prepackaged noodle meals that you just add water then heat up. If I run longer on jobsites and need something quick to eat, I have it.

I've said it once, I'll say it again... you don't mess with the Zohan... or his trailer!... Looks pretty sharp there ... reminds me of my 2004 box truck when I first set it up.... gives me some ideas for when I get a new truck and set that up anew.

Good Luck with it.

Zohan, do you do theater stuff too?

@ George
@ Tommy
Thanks guys, much appreciated

Zohan, do you do theater stuff too?
Yes....Theaters, media rooms, whole house music, outdoor a/v and landscape lighting.
The lighting part I have a dba under my llc so as to separate it from everything else.

What gave it away....?


Just saw your website, nice info on there. Seems we have some overlap of what we do...

HDMI cables, Speaker wire, Cat5e. Not your typical lighting equipment. I moved away from most of it. People think lighting is changing, theater stuff changes every 4 hours. I have a friend of mine that we refer each other for our specialties. He does theater and a lot of Sonos installs and I do the lighting. Good match and I am not stuck screwing around with IP addresses on peoples computers when things don't synch up like they are supposed to.

LOL...yup, I hear ya....
If I could do lighting full time I would, with some outdoor audio thrown in (sonos also)
