Ideas for trailer

Does anyone have any good storage ideas or setups for the inside of the trailer.

That's how I'm doing mine. Best system I've seen yet.

Something I did to mine many, many years ago and have continued the practice on 4 subsequent trailers is to mount a steel pipe of about 1 1/2" OD at the back and top of the trailer in order to hang our hunting and casual clothes onto for our trips. We simply pull the hunting clothes from the closet, hang them on the rack, slide them over against the wall of the trailer and bungee them against the wall. I have a split a piece of pvc (2.5 foot) to cover the tops of the hangars on each side and secure the pvc to the pipe with strips of double sided velcro glued to the pvc. This keeps the hangars from jumping off the rod during travel. It is a lot more convenient to 1) not have to unhang the clothes to pack, 2) not have to unfold and hang clothes when you get to your destination 3) use the 'pain in the arse' hangars in motels 4) and rehang clothes after the trip. It's easier to find the clothing you want to wear when you can see them hanging rather than try to fish thru a bag full of packed clothes. Only thing I have in my bag is underwear and socks. No wrinkled clothes.

Try it, you'll like it. Just make sure you place it so the back door will close. Also mount it high enough so you don't crack your head ( from experience)!

No more bagging decoys was the motivation for hanging them on the walls . We just pull them off the walls and pile them on the decoy cart . With one guy pulling the cart and one guy setting decoys we can empty the trailer pretty fast.

How would you put all of these on the wall ? This is only 1/2 of the Big Foots we put out.

Use a higher quality decoy and you can reduce the size of your spread by 75%

It would no doubt take a pretty good size trailer just to haul all those dekes much less hang them . I can hang right at 5 doz FFD`s . A mix of Avery `s and Avians . The Bigfoots just took up to much of my wall space so I am back to bagging them .
That is no doubt quite a spread you put out . But you can never have out to many decoys, till it comes time to pick up.

War Wagon ; I went back and looked at the pics of your trailer . Nice . I`m sure it gets pretty full with a couple hundred Bigfoots . I`m guessing it`s in the 24 ft. range .

I wish. It's a 16' trailer with a V Nose to make it 21'. Yes I can fit 200 BF's inside. I did not take a picture of them inside the trailer this year :mad: None of these BF's are flocked so we pile them up in the front of the rig.
