    Trades day vender trailer

    A couple years ago I converted this box trailer for a friend of mine
    It started out as a digital cable display trailer

    I started by removing all of the interior shelvs

    Then I cut the side down to the fender

    Then I made a large steel shelf unit and 2 smaller ones the large one is mounted on a 4 link system and raised with a winch this brings the shelf from its at rest position near the middle of the trailer up and out against the side the small shelves are on hinges which allows them to fold to the inside against the large shelf keeping any product from being able to fall off during movement

    Later the frames were covered with wood

    the finished trailer looks like this going down the road

    but in as little as 5 minutes it looks like this

    Very nice setup, practical, orderly, business-like, sure not a Yankee peddler theme. Old Sam Walton started with nothing even close.
    I've checked your KBS link before; it resides in a 'tool' tab with other respectable manufacturers. I've put off lots of painting already, but when weather returns, I've a list of builds that all lack the finish they deserve.
    All will have varied industrial colors, I'm not Henry Ford. Occurs to me, divide colors according to purpose. Machinery Gray is a definite; recently viewed a Monarch EE that is practically Powder Blue. Not sure what could inspire that...
    Sincerely,

    Well the guy who owns the trailer was from Mo. but lives in Ct. since its completion in early 2015 the trailer has ben to no less then 200 car / truck and swap meets he has gone from selling a few $100.00 a show to being 1 of only 2 factory authorized reps. and almost outsells the factory itself one month his Fed-ex bill alone wass close to 5k
    We have plans for me to build him a larger tandem axle trailer or convert a motor home into half product and half living quarters.
