That's the first thing I did, even before I got it home. The tires were flat and had come dislodged from the rims. I tried to take off the wheels , but the lug nuts were frozen ( turned out the ones I tried were left hand) so I took off the bearings. then to the tire shop for new tires and wash and re packed the bearings right there in the field .

Funny part was when the tire guy removed one of the tires a mouse jumped out and ran around. The mouse might as well have been a Boa Constrictor to see the look on the guy's face.

Re: Show us your trailer setup pictures

Looking for suggestions on power in the trailer. I will need to power 2 Ion Cubes, a radio/cd player and possibly a small TV.

How big of a power inverter should I get and how big of a deep cycle battery? What type of charging equip will I need for the battery?

Re: Show us your trailer setup pictures

I use a Pace 6X12 trailer. It is painted and tiled inside with AC running along the walls. I have a plugin on the front I plug in when docked in the shop. My planes can stay in the trailer on charge at home or plug into an outlet when I'm away on a fly-in. Always remember the fire extinguisher and tie down your batteries and tool boxes. If you use wing bags with a handle on them they can be hung on the wall. Battery operated lights from Walmart can come in handy.

I just bought a 6x12 yesterday, and will be headed to Georgia Monday to pick it up. I can't wait to get started on it, right after my wife makes me use it to move our stuff to the new house.

Re: Show us your trailer setup pictures

Alright guys and gals,
I have been working my a$$ off, I picked up my 7x14 trailer last year and jumped quickly to a midway shelf. After I used it I found it to be rather non-universal with only a wood floor to screw hooks into!! I went to Raleigh and flew with the guys at RDRC and checked out some of there trailers and grew fond of there setups with wire shelves!! It seems to be way more versatile(sp?)! So I decided to follow their lead!! I tore everything out and I am now up to here after paint and tile!! I love the outcome so far!! I am planning on a cabinet with a countertop and wire shelves!!
