My workshop is a 20’ Interstate Loadrunner which I pull behind my truck. I specialize in onsite custom cabinetry and finish carpentry so having a complete shop I can take to the job is important. Inside the trailer I built 2 workbenches one which runs almost the entire lenght of the driver side and includes storage for most of my portable power tools and hand tools. The other bench which covers half of the passenger side wall has a router mounted flush with the benchtop, and also provides storage for my finishing supplies, home protection supplies and misc hardware. At the front of the trailer I bolted down my 30 gal upright air compressor and dust collector. Along the ceiling of the trailer I mounted the dust collection ducts with drops over the benches. Also near the front/side door of the trailer I bolted my Drill Press down. When transporting to or from a jobsite I have anchor points buit-in to the benches so that my table saw doesn’t roll. Basically when I am at a jobsite or working at home I roll the tablesaw behind the trailer, setup the power mitersaw on its stand, and set up 3-4 sets of sawhorses as benches and work right out of the back of the trailer.

Hcc, your shop does sound interesting. I agree with Peter, how about posting some pictures when you get the chance?

HCC-
Sounds like a really cool setup, how do your electric tools hold up to the constant beating of the hwy? I also would enjoy some pic’s.

I’ll get some pics on tomorrow As for the beating the tools get from riding in the trailer the only problem I’ve had so far is the table saw’ mobile base, the casters tend to take quite a beating going up and down the ram into the trailer, but other than that everything is secure enough that it doesn’t cause problems
