i have 24' long of LED on 12v
5 4' long fluorescent off generator
and a few google deathray flashlights.

lar, dont forget massage chair
100" screen
and a hot tub
The screen shots of my CAD model don't show it clearly, but... there are E-track singles on the ceiling and floor so I can quickly install a stripper pole. That's my "signature" piece. Mikymu promised to bring the talent.

Good idea about the hot tub. TPD advertises that the roof is "walk-on". Sounds like as good a place as any to install the hot tub. I love looking up at the stars while getting a good soak.

Here are some screen shots of the drawings. These reflect the final configuration - what will actually be built.

Hey guys, Looking for almost this exact truck if you know any out there. Ideally white or silver, grey.

Nice! Looks like about the perfect 24' TPD setup. Haven't pulled a double axle but absolutely love the triple axle and how nicely it pulls.


Need more E-track in mine but bought used and have to retrofit

Eric, you have a great trailer. I was lucky enough to get to snap a handful of pics. It has served as inspiration for this build.

You should PM Chasen. He's got a huge TPD 44'er on order. He may want to trade up from his 2500 to a dually in order to pull that monster rig.

I'm curious to know how much gear and tools you have doubles for, ie: one in the trailer and one in the garage. Please share you list.

Likewise, if you take certain gear & tools out of the trailer (assuming you don't store the car in the trailer) each time you return home from the track. I met one guy who had made his own wooden tool box, just so he could easily pull a drawer out for this very reason. Kinda neat, but I'm not a woodworker.

Dump the built in tool box in the TPD and use a rolling Toolbox that can be strapped to the E-Track. That way you you have one tool box that can be used for the house and trailer. No duplicate tools needed.

Jesus, Chasen! You're going to scare everyone with the size of that thing!

It's going to be interesting watching my beast pull that thing. It's fricken' massive!

Thanks for the heads up. Got to love what comes and goes around in the crowd.
Can't imagine 44 ft. Takes a lot of toys to fill that up!

Very cool you are spec'ing yours out just the way you want it.
