Trailer build-out supplies
« on: May 01, 2017, 03:52 PM »
I recently bought a trailer to transport tools, furniture, supplies and the like when I travel to work on friends, family and other house projects.  I would like to put in a small access door to run the power out and air hose.  I am also interested in some general ladder racks, lights, hooks, and the like.  I don't have a retail outlet near me and wonder if anyone has recommended suppliers for trailer accessories.  I am following Ron Paulks' videos but I haven't seen any suppliers for general stuff noted.
Thanks in advance

I've used ETrailer.com and have been very happy with the content on the site and the Customer Service.

Thanks for the feedback.  I can't really do a Paulk-type build because I'll have to use the trailer for other tasks intermittently so I need to have fixation to the floor and walls when I travel with tools.  If anyone has pictures of how they attach things "non-permanently" I would love to see your ideas and solutions.

Electrical could be something like:
http://www.markertek.com/product/nac3fx-w/neutrik-nac3fx-w-female-powercon-true1-screw-termina-ip65-cable-connector
That is the delvery end and the chassis connector to receiver it would go on the trailer.
There are 4 basic parts, cord male/female and chassis in the outlet and inlet respectively.

Aeroquip or other racecar places should have air management solutions. The good news is that anything titled "race" is cheaper than "aircraft" or "boat"... The bad news is that ot is 'only just' cheaper. ;)

eTrailer is great for majority of things. I have outfitted several trailers in the past. Also try searching amazon and ebay for items in the rv sections. For making an access door to run an air hose and power chord, it could be as simple as putting one of these in. http://www.ebay.com/itm/RV-Camper-Electrical-Access-Compartment-Door-New-/390167703612?hash=item5ad7ceb03c:g:DXYAAOSwMzVTxAXg&vxp=mtr
