Yup.. finally got rid of the lil dinky 5 x 8 enclosed cargo trailer that had NO head room for loading or unloading... and ofcourse the new snowmobile trailer is just too big to haul for 1 or 2 bikes... so this is what I got!

a 6' x 12" with ramp door and side door and roof vent and lights...

It was in rough shape inside but easily fixed up for not much money...

I included the before pics ... so you might appreciate the AFTER a bit more :p

All work done by ME... still got more to do .. it's work in progess...

Got E-track on it's way... Traction Tape (12" wide - 60' Long roll)... Helmet racks... and Baxley Wheel Chocks... :eyebrows:

Very nice! What's behind curtain number 1? :D
wouldn't you like to know :eyebrows: - seriously though.. storage area for the usual clutter like tool box, spare parts, boots, and gas can...

I'll have some hanging hook soon like I had in teh other one to hang my leathers from... if I had had a lil foresight I would have ended the counter top just short from the left side and left about a foot of space for the leathers to hang up there so as to not take up anymore space... BUT oh well. I went for the most secure and sturdy way to install the counter to and it just so happened to be the right length where I only had to shave a tad off to make it fit...

hahah... yeah so far it's clean :p

yup used KilzKote (sp?) on the walls and floor.. then painted the walls with an exterior white paint...

bench is a kitchen counter top I had laying around :thumb: - supported by 6 2x4's and a handful of L-brackets between the support legs along the back wall.. MIGHTY STURDY :eyebrows:

I searched all over locally for that E-track with no luck so I went to the internet and searched all over and found the best deal at Tarps & Tie-Downs, Inc. 10' galv. Track $ 22.50 , End caps $ 1.50, D-rings $ 3.96

If ya wanted powdercoated instead of Galv. if you type in part # 43002 you get a 10' track for $13.50 if you do a normal search for e-track that same part is listed as $ 17.03.. must of not updated a page on their site with old pricing LOL.. and you can still add it to your cart from that $ 13.50 page ;) BUT I wanted Galvanized not powder coated.. an heck of a savings if ya don't mind the powder coated :cool:
