work benches in enclosed trailers

Anyone got pics of their workbenches in their enclosed trailers? I need to put a bench in mine but kinda torn on how and where to build it. I thought of putting it in the nose (v nose) but also thought of along the driver side and making it collapsable.

2013 haulmark 18' trailer
2013 John Deere 52' walkbehind
2012 Gator with skid sprayer
2010 Turfco T-3000
2008 JD 997
2006 JD 647a
2004 JD 757 w/ 3 bag & Iron MCS
2002 JD 757 w/ 2 bag MCS
2002 JD 757

Big Tex trailers
Tons of other equipment

I threw my bench at the nose. Opted for that location for even weight distro. I still store my 21 and edger and three compartment drawer on the floor underneath the bench. Works great.

I bought a cabinet with a fold down work bench. It turned out far stronger than I anticipated and I've used it heavily. It provided a good place for storage of my 2 stoke oil, safety equipment and tools I used daily.

I'm glad I went with it, as opposed to fabricating or building with wood. It is worth the money in my outfit.

We used 3/4 angle iron in the nose of the V with one leg in the center front. Then cut a peace of 3/4 ply and lay-ed it in very clean and simple.
