    Can any of you guys out there think of a downside of storing firewood (so it seasons) in one of them 52ft trailers? Thanks..

    It will "season" better out side in the air. Just stack it and cover the top of the piles to shed water.

    I know it will prob will season better outside then in the trailer but there's no more room at my house, so this is my only "free" option for now. Im pretty sure the heat inside the trailer during the summer time will dry it quite well rite?

    I agree with Gene. Heat will only go so far for seasoning wood. Air movement will complete the formula.

    I know guys that use them for firewood. Drys real quick in the summer heat. You can cut a hole in each end to allow some air circulation if you want.

    Vent isn't a problem. Just cut one turbine vent on the top at one end and leave the door partway open at the other end. Cross wind will get it dry quick.

    It's not a 52'' inch but rather a 52 foot trailer.

    I can't really cut any holes in the trailer. The best that i could do it leave the door open, or cracked, thats about it.

    I think it would be a great place tostore it. if you leave the doors cracked a bit, it would be great.
