Default BBQ Trailer (work in progress)

I'm finally getting some things done to my trailer. It took me awhile to figure out my layout. The bed frames will be hinged to the fenders. The fenders stick out 6" so I am going with a 5" mattress. This will make room to strap down two Traegers. I think my wash station will still be outside. A tool box will go on the left side between the fender and the table. I'm also thinking of mounting some cabinets above the table for storage. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Cheers,
Nate

Like the layout, but here is what I am doing to the front of mine.

I just bought a 27" base cabinet. I have an under the counter fridge. I am looking for a narrow cabinet now and will put the fridge between the two cabinets. Then put a counter top on and whallaaaaa, instant work station with storage. Upper cabinets are in the thinking stages right now. I did install some wire shelving along the left side of mine. That keeps the weight balanced and not all the bulk in front of the axle.

I may make some change later, but that is what is in the plans right now...

You can go here and check out some of the pics I have up so far... more to come later.

Which way does the fridge open? I'd prefer the weight to be on the left side of the trailer if possible - it rides better that way.

I have a very nice 06, 24' Feather-Lite for sale.
Beaver Tail, all the options, cheap!
I haven't been able to figure out how to make the thing work for catering.
How do you pull a 18' pit and a 24' trailer????

Weiser

MODS, this is not to be construed as a for sale offer. It is for sale, but I wouldn't consider advertising it on the Q-Talk Board. Really.
Just looking for ideas on how to best utilize it before someone steals it.

2 tow vehicles. I've seen guys pulling travel trailers that had boat trailers behind them.

You can "triple tow" in TX as long as it's under 41ft I think. So looks like you miss by a foot.
