    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.

    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.
