Our troop trailer has just been completed with an incredible interior. The
front of the trailer is accessable through a side door. A set of shelves
with sliding doors keeps everything in place in the front wall.=20
The inside has been divided into a center aisle and metal fram racks on each
side. 6 patrol boxes, plus all poles and other bulky items fit into the
racks. A heavy duty corragated tube holds six dutch ovens in a stack, fully
secured. Places on the open spots of the walls hold a rake, shovel, broom,=
We have sufficient space left to hold numerous ice chests and other
materials. Of late, we have even fitted a double 55-gal drum barbarque into
the center isle to allow us to cook steaks for 60 at a recent campout.
The key to this trailer was building a spot for everything and then teaching
the boys how to keep it in shape.
Total cost for our trailer was about $3500, most of it gifted and part
covered by the sale of the old trailer and funded by the boys.
