That snapon box (unloaded) alone costs about 50% over what you paid for your whole trailer, so don't get too jelly. Also, all that time and money into that thing with the flooring and the windows... and no driver escape door? Boo.

<edit> Looking at it again, I'm not seeing a winch or tie downs. What is that trailer used for?

Good question, that was just an example of what that company does - I think that trailer is more for a plush biker than anything. Trust me - I'm doing things on the cheap - instead of snap-on, more like US General - and no alum cabinets for me, lucky me, my business neighbor does custom cabinetry and is going to build something for me cheap and that won't weigh a ton. If I put in a tool box (my current box weighs a ton) I'd arrange it such that I can pull it outside, nothing permament.

More Practical - gotta wonder how much that tread plating alone costs...

We buy it for $1.75-2.00 a pound at work for 1/8" aluminum treadplate.
