My custom order trailer came and I picked it up Thursday, I spent Friday night and part of Saturday getting the e track and winch on it. Sunday it went for a 5 hour each way ride to New York to pick up its first load of cub's, I'm very pleased with how it hauled.

I like your trailer. Looks heavy duty with plenty of anchor points.

Well, that's one way to break it in...... :thumbs:

E track is just about the industry standard for enclosed trailers now, and is becoming more common in cargo vans also. If you google e track, it's amazing how much stuff they have now. Cabinets, drawers, shelves, wheel chocks, bins, and d-rings. Or you can use ratchet straps that have the special e track lock hook on them. Essentially, you get tie down spots every few inches where he has that track on the trailer.

I really appreciate the answers good to know. Last trailers I dealt with were just wood deck with tie downs on the rails, how far we have come.

As the others have said its the silver rails seen in the first pic and it gives you a ton of options when it comes to tie down.

Who built your trailer, and is it the usual 7000lbgvw or the heavier 9900gvw you sometimes see?  BTW, nice trailer!

That's really nice.  I have a question on the e-track.  How did you fasten it down to make it strong enough to hold a load like that?  In the picture it looks as though it's just screwed to the deck and I wouldn't think that would be strong enough.  Love the idea.

It's bolted through every cross member with 5/16 bolts and has 5/16 lag bolts every foot.
