See Casey, I'm not the only one who draws a diagram on how to load a trailer! 
 
Good thinking Ray. I like the pre-planning!  :thumbs:

As for you (troy), your map making skills are not as far advanced as Ray's skills, so you (Troy) lose again lol.

After several years of loading UPS trailers I can pretty much do all that in my head. I was called by my mom several years back because a gal I knew in high school and her husband were in my area and moving back to TN. They couldn't get everything on the U haul. I went over an looked at it for about 10 minutes then we unloaded every thing and put it back on and had1 foot of room left over.

Way to load Ray. I hope you don't plan to have all those hand tools on the work bench for the long drive.

After the trailer is loaded, just get some stretch wrap and wrap the entire trailer & contents....Everything will be in the right place when you get to Indiana.

Wow! That is quite the load. With all the tools and equipment, it must be bittersweet to pack up the shop.

It's times like this that I'm glad that I built the forklift.

I've loaded up the welding bench and I need to set the belt sander bench on top of it.

The belt sander bench sets down so the legs hang over the welding bench.

This leaves just enough room for the lathe to set in front of it.

It has been raining off and on the last couple of days so I have a tarp over the front part of the trailer.

If it starts to rain or if I'm done for the day, I just back the trailer into the carport and don't have to fuss with trying to keep covering and un-covering the back of the trailer where I'm working.

Are you leaving the forklift behind? Give the ol girl a pat on the fender for us before you pull out. She served you well.

He cant leave the forklift behind, he built it it's own trailer already lol. I think the plan is to pull doubles all the way to indiana. When are you pulling out for indiana anyway?

He can't leave it behind because he can't unload without it.

He can't leave it behind because he can't unload without it.

This is the next to the last trip to get all my stuff down there.

I'll leave this loaded trailer at my sons place and make one more trip with the forklift in tow.

 

At that trip, my wife will follow me with her car and we will leave the forklift and the truck at my sons place and come back in her car.

That leaves the camper, the enclosed trailer for what is left in the house and her car.

Once the house sells, we'll hook the enclosed trailler to the camper, load up the house stuff and head out for the very last time.

 

We have been making plans for this move for a very long time.

It's really exciting to know that the move is finally going to happen once the house sells.
