20′ Enclosed Race Trailer – Part 4 – Storage

The main idea is the keep things off of the floor, because, well…gravity doesn’t make a good load binder.
In addition to a boatload of E Track, I will put a small cabinet / bench to put on a wall, a spot for my tool box, a fuel jug carrier, and a tire rack with a way to tie the tires down.

I built the tire rack using 4 E Track 2×4 pockets, a couple 2x4s, and some bracing between the 2. It’ll take 4 race tires and 2 trailer spares. I’m using single-slot E Track anchors to secure the tires. The fuel jug rack is also there in front of the kart:

I also put up, just, a BUNCH of E Track. Along both sides (at a useful height this time, if you compare to to earlier photos, it was barely higher than the inner fenders).

I also put some at the very front of the trailer to serve as a bumper for the kart, to keep it from rubbing against the wall, but also to serve as storage when the Kart isn’t there:

And then loaded everything up 1 more time as a final test to make sure I have room for everything where I think it ought to go, and as a systems test of the winch and pulley block, as I hadn’t actually pulled anything up with it yet.

Plenty clearance for the toolbox on the driver’s side:

And space on the passenger side as well. That fender’s a nice place to hang that folding table:

Canopy and generator added at the rear, with plenty of room for other sundries:

A handy dandy E Track fire extinguisher mount, and a couple of E Track D-ring straps make a great way to store folding chairs:

Even with the car, kart, toolbox and cooler loaded up, there’s plenty of room for more stuff should the need arise.

And finally, the all important bottle opener by the door. Can’t go without that.

Looks like we’re ready to go for her maiden voyage this weekend 😀

  1. I am humbled and amazed, especially when I think of the work I did on my smaller trailer to improve it’s utility. If I ever have need to tackle a task like that again, I will just run it thru Andrew’s Kustom Kreations Konversion Shoppe and Swearing Academy instead
