Hey what do you guys think about adding a few side boxes to the sides of my trailer to get about 40% more cargo space?

Very unique idea and a good use of the space with the side opening doors. Very cool. Nice sketches too!

Your design looks better

You'd lose a little space with the angled ends but it looks so much nicer!!!

I think it is a great idea, saw a construction trailer with 4 truck boxes mounted to the side. Lots of extra room without taking up interior room. The aluminum boxes would be light and if you make them removable they could be dual purpose. Make a separate mount for your hitch and mount one or two on that if you do not want to take the trailer but need more room, just a thought.

Getting closer... but so is CM08!

I am mostly done with the sheet metal, I only have the floor left and then to fab a tailgate... I am going to build the side boxes next winter and add them at that time, gotta finish before moab with the most of it.

Comming along nicely don't you thinks?

WOWZERS, that is looking awesome

I know what you could do for a sideline should you ever want to...Although I'm not sure any of us could afford a Rezarf original

You'd better put fenders over them there wheels...

But what eye-popping excitement! That looks even better than I imagined! Great job! Can your 40 pull it still?
