We picked this trailer up last week. It's 7x12 and 7ft tall aluminun. The previous owner glued carpet to the luan inside that was the first thing to go. We replaced it with 3/8 plywood covered with white FRB. While the walls where down we removed the screws and glued and riveted the outside skin also glued and riveted the plywood inside.. Wired over head lighting and installed overhead cabinets... Just waiting for the bunks to arrive ...

Looks like it's going to be a great trailer. Be sure to show more pics as you go and when it's finished. The higher ceiling will make all the difference in the world.

Where did you order the bunks from?

A company called LIFTCO very reasonable price compared to the others out there save big on the shipping they come UPS instead of freight http://www.liftcoinc.com/index.html?page=beds&title=Beds&level=2

Great job on the trailer guys, I have this thread saved for when we pull the trigger on our comp trailer. Can you tell me where you got the screen? And is it the kind that has little magnets running down the center? Thanks!

I bought the screen at Home Depot it called pet screen very heavy duty and used 2" indusrial adhesive velcro folded around the edges and in the center.. I bought one of those as seen on tv magnet screen door POS's total junk ...lol

the weight limit on the beds are 300lbs per bunk with 3/8 plywood the liftco said they could be beefed up with 3/4 inch plywood... they did a collaspe test and it took 1300lbs to collaspe these beds ... I was debating the 3/4 inch plywood as I'm close to 280 but the 3/8 is fine... and its a good excuse to lose alittle lol

The White board is called FRB( Fiberglass renforced board) also at Home Depot... We had enough left over we put it smooth side out on the bottom of the beds and now its our time line white board!!!!

I have to bookmark this thread now. Pure genius using the FRP as a whiteboard.

We put the extra support on the bottom bunk because we put piece of roll stock between the 2 middle ones and that is where we store our disposable cutting boards... Could never find convienent place to store that awkward shaped box..

Brilliant! What, if any, is your choice for a generator?

Well done boys! I want to compliment you on the entire project. I don't have the funds to outfit a trailer like some on here do, so I was planning on doing it myself. After seeing your progress, I know it can be done on a budget, and make it look great. Thanks for a great, informative post!!!
