    I am trying to come up with an good way to organize the straps, tarps, protectors, bungies in the boxes, ECT with some built in inserts an dividers, what are you doing for your box organization? Any ideas would be nice. the old boxs were junk an never used by me when i bought the trailer. now want to make the best out of the new ones

    I just throw all my #### in there and close the door before it all falls out. Ive tried organizing it more than once. But going down the road 20 miles and it is no longer organized.. So ive completely given up.

    So I stole this image from a good fella right here on this site. (Cain, jump in if you like ;)) Been thinking about trying to copy him myself. Looks good, & assuming it stays neat going down the road..

    Currently, I'm in the same situation as you Tibbitt.. Pack it best I can, open doors & sheet just dumps on the ground.. lmao :rolleyes:

    Dividers are your best bet. We don’t have toolboxes on our trailers but I put dividers on the top shelf of my headache rack. It helped a bunch. 6611C7F4-19DC-46A8-BDB2-820B1C4B9ED2.jpeg 6611C7F4-19DC-46A8-BDB2-820B1C4B9ED2.jpeg

    When I had boxes on my flat it was a constant struggle to keep it organized. When the box was new I kept it very organized. As time went on, I gained more crap and kept crap I probably didn't need to for fear of I might need it one day. Re-visit this thread in a year and send us some pictures of the box.....

    So many straps.....you need an RGN and you won’t have to pack around a zillion straps!

    So... if I go spend $110,000 on a 40T RGN, we won't have to spend $100/yr on straps anymore?

    Awesome! Where do we sign?
