I have a small update on my trailer sides. I wasn’t feeling them – so I decided to change course.
I have had the sides in the garage waiting for paint. I painted most of the surface area, but some still needed to be done. But since yesterday was really nice in the morning, I decided to take them out for some more work. And that’s when it happened. I fell out of “like” with them. I don’t know, I just didn’t like them anymore. I pictured myself cruising down the highway watching them fly off the trailer through the rear view mirror. That’s the last thing I need.
I went out to Home Depot this morning with an upgraded plan. I picked up some angle iron, a few boxes of bolts, washers and nuts and some 1″x6″ decking wood. Now, I have the materials to make sides I can be proud of. After I put them together, I may just cruise Main Street.
In other news, I ordered what’s probably the mac daddy of all cargo nets. It’s called the Gorilla Cargo Net and it covers everything I decide to load up in the trailer. Take a look at the video to see what I’m talking about. It’s much better than rope, bungee cords or regular tie downs. With my new sides and the cargo net, I swear I don’t know what to do with myself.
UPDATE: Here are some pictures of the Gorilla Cargo Net covering my trailer. I took these pictures the evening before I left Connecticut, heading to Florida. It was a long drive, but the net was the perfect solution to cover our belongings on the trailer.
