Sooooo... Trying to get shit done for the last few years and i just got tired of having everything spread out. This spring I built my MGRDT (mobile get er dun trailer). She houses a 10k gen, wire feed welder, air compressor, oxy/acc torch, small tool box, larger "job box"ish and a few other little things. been using it for around three months and am very happy with it!
Lets see them trailers! I know ya got em!

I like your thread starter, Jim.  I like what you’ve shown.

I’m curious and interested in what people here on Permies might have along this line, but I don’t have.  Basically, I bring everything I can to my metal-working area where I’ve got AC, and grinders, cutoff saw, 240v MIG, torches, sandblaster, and needed hand tools.  I do have my oxy-fuel outfitted with smaller bottles now, making it an awkwardly mobile rig (it’s on a hand cart with 6-inch wheels).

Thing is, hardly any members show what they’ve got in the way of either mobile or building-sheltered shop situations.  For instance, I’ve started a thread and only a few people have posted.  https://permies.com/t/62659/homestead-workshop-shed-situation

Most recently, I added a post on it to try to get people associated with Paul’s  Lab & Ant Village to show what they’ve got for a sheltered workshop… nobody’s replied.

By the way, Jim, you did contribute on that thread.  Thanks.

I hope your great pics on this thread prompt some response about trailers.
