hardscaping trailer

Just took delivery on a 6x12 enclosed trailer to store all the hardscape equipment in. 2 plate compactors, 14" brick saw, splitter, laser, screed rails, hand tools, wheel barrows, etc. We are going to set it up in the next couple of weeks. Just wondering if anyone had pics of their setup. Thanks.

E-track has some really nice options. I am going to outfit it completely using that system. Snaprack.com has a good selection.

I am looking to buy a 6x12 we already have a chevy 2500 van we use for tools to I figured adding a 6x12 behind it would be ideal. I have talked to a few of our suppliers about helping the cost of wrapping it and I think I have a compnay who will pitch in. I plan on putting all the hand tools compactors laser saws and misc. Anyone have any pictures of there hardscape trailers?

If you have to go with 6' x 12' you guys gotta go with tandem axles, stay away from the singles unless you plan to be hooked up to your hitch at all times. V nose and ramp doors are best.
