Default Enclosed Trailer Question

Anyone have a tire changer and/or wheel balance inside your trailer ?
If so - how did you manage to secure to floor ?
Anyone have a rail system on the floor to move the equipment withing specific parameters on the floor vs. bolting ?

Thanks.

Don't have a tire changer but, I have 3 strips of Etrack on the floors and 4 recessed tie downs.

Why you need tire mounting? Every track has that

Sometimes they are closed and they have limited hours. BRP tire store is pretty good but I have had issues at TH with short hours and they broke a TPMS.

Idk cheaper to just have more wheels than a good tire mounting machine etc

Personally I have spent those $ on alignment gear

E-track for tying down makes sense.

I think i stumbled into something - i'll report when i get back state side.

Generator is needed - air compressor. Any well setup trailer needs one, imo.

Long story, i got some snapon stuff on a great deal. For how much it cost to mount and balance tires in the bay area- this pays for itself for me within 2 years.
Plus i have friends locally that would love to use it- and i can save them ~$120 bucks. for 1 hour work on a Saturday or Sunday morning.

This too. Plus i don't have to deal with people being harsh on the lips of wheel.

remember you will need a lot of high psi air to seat beads on low profile track tires, unless you're driving a miata lol. when i mounted my trailer tires using the tire machine in the back of the trailer, it sucked

I would do e-track all the way. FWIWI just placed an order for a new custom 28' 4926 Featherlite;
Two e-track strip on the floor all the way will run $840 MSRP
One e-track strip on each wall (L&R) all the way will run $750 MSRP
4 additional floor D-rings will run $300 MSRP
