What's in Your Trailer?

There are other threads asking to show your trailer. Most members posted pictures of the outside. I would love to see what's in your wallet.... I mean trailer!

A very comfy mattress and sheets.
More dog hair than should be, and the wonderful dog that sheds it
Enough coffee to get me through weeks of boondocking, as long as I have water.

The things that are important to me.
My home.

MrCoffee drip coffeemaker with thermos carafe. A few cans of Bud. Several bottles of drinking water. A pint of half and half for coffee. Eggs and Jimmy Dean sausage, whole wheat bread, Miracle Whip instead of Mayo, sliced ham, tomatoes, 1% milk. Serta EuroTop mattress replaced the cheap mattress Skyline included. 20" flat-screen TV that we rarely watch. A few small bottles of juice and Sprite and root beet. We both read a lot between dinner and lights out, so there are a few novels in the trailer, my historical novels and her adventure novels. And special reading lights set up over the bed for me and over the dinette for her.

Sugar, the Border Collie whose Dad was a champion from the border between Wales and England. Marguerita (Rita), the rescued Chihuahua so we don't know her pedigree but she's a sweetheart.

And in the "basement", several adapters to convert to/from 15 amp, 20 amp, 30 amp and 50 amp. Heavy-duty bottle jack in case of a flat on the trailer. 2' x 3' piece of 5/8" plywood for a jack base in case a tire must be changed in a muddy ditch. 30-foot 30-amp extension cord, 100 foot 20-amp extension cord. 20-amp cordless drill for tightening the 4 stabilizer jacks and the spring bars on the ProPride WD hitch. Sockets and wrenches to do whatever needs to be done. Various sewer hose adapters. Ultra-fab wheel chocks ( https://www.etrailer.com/Wheel-Chock...21-001091.html ). Two 10-packs of Ultra-Fab leveling blocks (one 10-pack is usually enough, but not always).

Then he posted in the wrong forum. This forum is for RV trailers. If he intended to discuss cargo trailers towed by a motorhome, then he should post it in the motorhome forum.

As a webmaster of another forum, you would think I would get this stuff right.

I meant an enclosed or open tow behind trailer, can we get a moderator to move this for me?

Thanks for that reply. It was not what I meant, but this is good information anyway.....

Go back to your post #1. Look down on the left side of the post to the bottom left corner. There you will see a red triangle with a black mark in it. When anyone clicks on that red triangle, it creates a blank note to the moderators that you are reporting a problem post. Explain the problem in the little note box and they will do the rest. I've often reported posts that were in the wrong forum, and the moderators on IRV2.com are fast and efficient in taking care of the problem. I normally use Twitter shorthand such as "shd be moved to the toad forum." I could report it now, but I thought I'd allow you to do it so next time you'll have experience.

,hopefully my enclosed 20' trailer was custom built for me I added a genset area dolor panels , insulation, AC with heat strip, led lights it has a crew door and a vehicle ramp door.thats how I got it. They mounted two Rv batteries for the solar system and a motorcycle/utv battery for the breaking system.why the extra battery I don't know. Inside the area where the genset is was made into a counter but it leaves enough room to pull the SxS utv in beside it.

Still need to get the inverter wired up and a few creature comforts to use for lodging on short trips.

Used it once with the Motorhome to go to as for about two weeks. I loaded up the gear for the event I was attending, plus the ranger etx and strapped it down.

We forgot to install the brake controller in the Motorhome so it went out and back with trailer brakes never missed them but that has since be corrected as it was a several hour job locating the proper points according to the service bulletin and running the wire. Not a plug and play setup.out of the four wires I think two went to the same harness the other two one went that way the this wat. If I would have know that at the time of buying the controller I would have went to the prodigy 4 wifi unit plug in power port in tow vehicle and you done with that part plugin line with the trailer with part two and mount box to trailer and your done. Great setup if the distance isn't too far between units from what I read.

Now I'm looking at putting a street legal vehicle in it my choices are few. Three I know of based on factory specs. The ranger takes up 110" of the 240" of space in the trailer that's not the hard part. The tough thing is finding a vehicle under 130" overall length. Tomorrow we are loading the ranger as far forward with some padding between the wall and what ever touches it. Then I plan to close the ramp and measure a few different ways how much room is left. Then we will lower the ramp run a smart car in and see how it fits with the ranger and ramp door closed. I can load the large black storage box in the back of the ranger during transport. Strapping the ranger down in this position shouldn't to be that hard.

Tiring the smart ar down is another thing. I was going to buy all new followers ow eye bolt since the one from this car is gone along with the tire repair kit. The car has some other minor problems that I'll look In to tomorrow and price will be adjusted to allow repair. This isn't the place for those comments. Along with the two vehicles and storage Voc a few other items will be swqeezed in like a rugged gun cart, ammo and other countries sentinel items and eventually a cot, tv and toaster and microwave oven and fridge. Counter might get cluttered. I also have a Coleman electric cooler I'm going to put back there for extra cold items if the solar will power it great if not add more panels. Olive got three cheap 15wt panels I can use. One day I'll go and blog on my full setups with photos and trip reports etc.
