    A friend of mine and I are bout to build a storage area in the front of my trailer. My trailer is 6.5x16 foot. Does anyone have any pics of their trailers that have any type of storage shelves/bins/areas on them? I am planning on storing miscellaneous items such as bags, trimmer line, backpack blower, etc. Thx
     
  2. If you have 1' top rail height, make the bottom of the box at least 1' above your top rail.

    If a 2' top rail then you shouls be ok.

    I know there are some pics in the arcives.

    Moderators, delete the above pic and post, the picture did not load completely.

    Here is a pic of one that I saw in the parking lot at the GIE. This one is very heavy and well built.

    Matt, a very nice picture indeed. I may use some of the ideas from it.

    Off to the left of the tool box was a tool rack. They are actually 2 different pieces, just plate metal with large plastic grommets. These would be easy enough to build.

    If you want to go Simple. Heres what I did. a 2x4 across the front to hold the gas cans and hand blowers and an old ammo can bolted to one fender to hold hand pruners , trimmer line and some spare pins and parts.
    I rigged the ammo can so I can lock it if I want to and I might make a mesh at to go over the front section.

    I don't have any finished pictures of the trailer I built. I do have a picture of what I bought it as, and a half way done job. I made a shelf and racks above my railings, with a spare tire hanger, blower hooks on the inside, and rakes racks across the whole front. I also put the toolbox back on after it was painted.

    This is my trailer box. It sits high but I am tall so it works for me.
