New Enclosed Trailer

Just purchased a 6'x14' Haulmark Trailer. Was wondering if anybody could give my ideas on how to hang all equipment. Have 2 48" walk behinds ( no problem there) 2 backpack blowers, 2 trimmers, hedge trimmer chain saw. Not sure to to hang equipment so it stays during transit. Any pictures would be helpful also. Thanx

those calmps look like a great idea. I am going to try and use them in our van. Just starting out, so We'll try to get some before/after pics up to check out.
Thanks for the tip!

Just check out the clamp pic. You'll want to cut about 3/4" off of one end of each clamp end. This allows the clamp to close down on the round stuff.
Good luck,
Pete

Switchless: What do you use to anchor the 2x4s to the wall? I see the metal braces but what type of wall anchors do you use with the hollow wall of the trailer? Thanks.

Just to be sure, I glued, then used 4" lag screws on the 2x4, then added the small angle braces.....

I had it mounted and it was more trouble than it was worth. It has to come out for every lawn, so I just leave it on the side. It's much easier and faster, at least for me.
