Not sure if it will help anyone or give you some ideas, but here are a couple of my garage area mods. My mods are mostly based around carrying two motorcycles, so check it out if you are interested.....

This first one shows how I added a piece of 3/4" plywood to the floor of the garage area and integrated the existing tie down point for helping to secure the wood. The bolts that hold down the Baxley wheel chocks were put up from the bottom of the plywood and recessed into it (Carriage bolts) to make them function as a stud sticking up. The Baxleys sit on top of them, then I run a nut down to secure them. If I need them out of the trailer, unscrew the nuts, lift them out and it takes about a minute. This mod allowed me to put the Baxley Wheel chocks in the trailer, make the secure, AND, not drill through the floor of the trailer. When I moved the existing tie down point trim plates on top of the plywood, I of course had to use longer wood screws to put the cover trim back on. The plywood is painted with some gray paint and there is 3/4" aluminum angle around the edges to keep everything tidy. You can also see in the background the bottom half of a roll-a-round tool chest. That too is anchored to an existing tie down point in the floor using a "J" hook and through the bottom of the tool box.


This one show the wheel chocks removed and it being used to store the dog crate. Up above the tool box area I've added a clothes rod across the bottom of the overhead storage cabinet. There is also one of the length of the Gladiator Gear Track with some assorted hooks/basket/storage trays. In the bottom left, you see a box that I built for my Big Red propane campfire ring...along with a 20 lb tank. ....


This pic is of my wooden box storage for the 4 paint buckets full of concrete with "E" bolts in the top of them. These are used as weights to help hold down the popup canopy when it gets a bit windy.


Closer shot of the front...


And a random shot of the storage slide out that I built and installed in the forward storage area of the trailer....

Very Nice!! Some Great ideas there for sure. Thanks for sharing!


Quick question...I noticed your coiled up air line. What compressor do you take with you, if any?



I Plan to take a small one with me this fall to use for blowing out my wet lines for storage.

I've got a DeWalt 6 gallon pancake.....120VAC. I've also got a Viar 12V in the truck and I'm going to do some piping changes and make it where I can tie into the air line that feeds the air horns and be able to air truck tires up if needed, when I'm not towing the camper.

Nice!

I really need to do that air-horn mod to my truck as well. So many possibilities

Thank you.......I do love the air horns, although I really don't use them much. Every once in a while, when I'm away from traffic, houses, ect......I like to give it toot!

I went with boxes in the floor at the back of the garage....fit them between the floor joists and the frame rails....will have to get a picture from other computer.

Made the front box deep enough to hold a antifreeze bottle standing up. The rear box on the dove tail holds all my tools and other nonsense extras.

Xrated nice job. Just clarifying the motorcycle stand. The plywood is held down using the existing tie downs with longer bolts. The stands are bolted thru with carriage bolts thru the plywood upside down. So the when removing the stands the bolts are still there sticking up?

They are, but what I did is cut a couple of pieces of 2x4 about two or three inches longer on both ends, drill holes in them and place them over the studs sticking up. Not the perfect solution, but at least you won't tear your toes off if barefoot. Probably a better solution might have been to put a couple of those metal inserts in from the bottom of the plywood, that have machine threads, and then screw in a bolt into it.
