Trailer door
« on: March 26, 2012, 05:20:54 AM »
Been looking at enclosed trailers, and most around me have the bar latch on the side door.  Any easy way to convert over to a different latch or rv style so you can open/close from inside?

I think Fabr might still be looking for some revenge from the rooooost, I'm not chancing getting locked inside?  ;D

BTW, unless these used ones will come down $1k, I can buy new the way I want for less or same.  So just wanted to know, so if I find the right one and make a lowball offer?

well anything can be converted but for how much is the real question. I think you could put an rv style handle and lock in and leave the bar open while you camping in it or remove it but if you leave it you could lock it on top of the door and make it harder for thieves to get in! I like the black one you sent pics of just don't like the heat from the black trailers.

That's a pretty good price.  Is the trailer insulated and skinned inside?
You smell that?
