    Awesome thread.

    I just picked up a trailer a couple weeks ago and this is what I've been installing in my trailer floor...expensive. I went with it for 1 real reason: stud fittings give you a lot of possibilities. I modified a couple aluminum Condor chocks to work w/ the L-track. Its pretty slick to be able to change bike position for tongue weight or different bike styles. Once I wrap up my trailer I'll post pics.

    Most spray foam insulation expands significantly will buckle the walls. I'd stay away.

    Condor makes a couple e-track adapters: One, Two

    There is also a chock which plugs right into L-Track (this is what i used for my idea to modify my Condor chocks): Link

    Agreed. I was thinking of using riv-nuts on my aluminum framing (wall studs) for track and such. PO put a few e-Track bolts right into framing...didn't seem good w/ just a single thread or so of contact.

    Was wondering the same thing

    Seems if you do it in stages to allow the foam somewhere to expand it might work w/o bulging the interior or exterior panels

    Maybe start 1 foot from floor & do it in 1 ft increments all the way up to the top ??

    there are low expansion foams available. it would be prohibitively expensive, imho. a better way, would be to remove the interior panels, line the all cavities with rigid foam insulation and fill the gaps with low-e foam, then replace the panels.

    I was looking for some Gas Tank Racks for my 3 Rail trailer I use for track transport... I ended up making my own... I just run a bungy across the top and they work great... Im sure you could do the same for other trailers enclosed/open... Total Cost with Hardware $13

    That would work....or armorflex insulation works well.

    I used 2 types of rigid foam panels: expanded polystyrene (1" white) and styrofoam (1/2" blue). Reason I used the two types was just to fill 1.5" stud depth. 4'x8' sheets are ~$13 ea. Not too bad to work with; w/ careful measuring they wedge in and stay in on their own (and obviously the sheathing holds them in once installed). I didn't use glue just in case i ever need to pop them out for wiring access. Can be knocked out in a day or two depending on size of trailer.

    They make styrofoam 1.5 inches thick.

    I'm in the middle of sorting out a 6x10 enclosed that I picked up recently. I have 2 pitbull restraints lined up at the back and a few random hooks and racks that I'm putting on the walls.

    I've got a handful of eye-bolts that I was going to sink into the floor but I'm not sure on exactly where I want to locate them.


    .......anyone have any suggestions on good placement locations for them? 1 in each corner, or in the middle someplace???


    TIA

    corners would be best. Etrack works a lil better in the middle.

    For what purpose? The PB restraints should hold the bikes, so what do you want the eye bolts to do?

    And get the fold down D rings. You'll hate tripping over the eye bolts.

    Occasionally haul others bikes I don't have a restraint for and just use a chock up front.


    I think I'll probably do that, 1 in each corner, and some e-track up the middle.

    Snap some pics, I've got a 6x10 as well. When I pull mine out of the barn and get started in a couple weeks I'm going to try and take a lot of pics while setting it up.

    That's great.

    I've got some rubber diamond plate sheet that will go down as one piece for the flooring. Picked it up at a RV supply place. Also picked up a nice alumnium cabinet/bench off CL for $75. Not sure if I should paint the walls white of put up grey carpet.

    Yeah I'm still contemplating some white paint for the interior.

    I debated between white paint or gray carpet, & went with white paint just for the light aspect. I figured a gray trailer would seem pretty dark inside.

    I painted my walls a very light gray and used roll on floor paint from Lowes in light grey which is somewhat dark. The walls are also high gloss.

    E track is cheap and awesome. I put a piece width ways across the floor to be used in conjunction with a removable chock in lieu of Pitbull restraints should I not have the necessary pins.

    I also got a vertical piece, cut it in half, and put it on the walls just in front of the bikes. Using the 2x4 adapters I attached short pieces of aluminum pipe like axles with removable pins to safely transport spare wheels. Much more secure than hanging a wheel from a wall and the rotors are protected from a fall or shifting of other items.
