New trailer set up, any ideas?

Picked up this new trailer 2 weeks ago. I started to set it up and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. It is a 8.5x18. I will be able to pull the machine right in even with the duals on it. I hope this works out to keep things more organized. My problem has been that I didn't have space for all the parts for an install in my utility truck so we would buy boxes of fittings and the extras would end up getting tossed in a bucket mixed with other stuff and we would never sort through it. So now I have enough 6x10x18 bins to hold all the regular parts

I don't have an enclosed trailer, but when I do I always thought about adding some of those touch lights for seeing better in there.

You might be able to use some magnetic clips/hangers on those metal shelves.

Just throwing stuff out there. Nice trailer, I can see how it will increase your efficiency compared to how you were doing things.

A vice would come in handy. Trailer will be a nice addition.

Toilet......
Something oldtimers never worried about, times have changed.
A reciever welded somewhere handy for a vice on a drawbar. I have one in the bed of the ranger for benders and vices.

Just a 5 gallon bucket works , done it many times , a rv/boat one is a bit more convenient when out on a job and there isnt a a place near by . We had a 2 week job last summer on an "estate" 16 miles from the closeest store ,I took my 30ft camping trailer, generator , food , and stayed every other evening to get the job done . Right comfortable
