Ceiling was finished out in vinyl soffit material using stainless self starting screws into roof bracing. Commercial grade carpet on the floor. Easy to transport and doesn't take up too much space in the garage. Not a work of art like I have seen here, but it meets what is required for me at the present time.

can you tell me more about the soffit material.
where did you get it and what is the sku # I really like that look.

You can purchase it at Lowe's. I have a friend you puts up siding for a living and I got it from him. I did purchase the "J" channel there. I measured where the center would be and then started on one side and worked my way across to the other. It really brightened up the inside and it is so easy to clean.

Well the trailer keeps coming along. I have installed carpeting, insulation in the roof , a small built in self, airplane hangers and led lighting on a DPDT switch. This allows me to power the lighting from any 3s lipo. or, if the trailer is connected to the truck, from the truck's power system without any changes. . Up next some paint and vinyl graphics for the outside.

If you are planning on using a lipoly, I Strongly suggest you buy or build a low voltage cut off cuircit or you may not have a trailer left after forgetting to turn off the lights one night.

Default Lights and Graphics

LEDs from Amazon and Graphic from Ocean Palm. Only problem I had-- make sure its warm when you apply your graphics!!!!! Anyone know what to use to get excess adhesive off of vinyl graphics?

I use the heat gun method to lay graphics when its a bit chilly for them. Not sure what you mean by excess adhesive. I'd be careful as what you use might seep under the edges and cause the graphic to start lifting.

Looking good !

When the transfer sheet was removed it left quite a bit of adhesive residue on the trailer and the decal itself. Alcohol seems to cut it some but I think it was just too cold. I hope to get some sunny 70 degree weather this week and try again.
