at 3.3m how'd I get them up there?

To do that 'properly' I'd need scaffolding, fall arrestor and full PPE Razz

What do you guys do to store your trailers, Ive just taken ownership of a house with a double garage and it seems like a bit of a waste of space to store the trailer there.

Happy to keep it there when car is on the trailer and I wont be doing any work on it. Might just keep the lock up I have to store it.

Keep the weight off the suspension/tyres if storing for a long time, especially with a car on it. I have two wooden blocks the right height to keep the wheels half an inch off the ground.

Keep the tyres out of UV as much as possible, either a couple of spare wheel covers, or whip the wheels off and store them away, depends how frequently you'll be using it (mine gets used for allsorts other than cars)

Other than that, as long as it's galvanised it wont come to any harm outside if you keep the right bits greased and the wiring is decent. Obviously a lock is a good idea.

This thread has given me so much food for thought. Just moved into a new build with a double garage so need to get it sorted to man cave status.

Like idea of tiles but think I'll go with epoxy paint for now. Can't decide what units to go for either and but have decided to get LED panel lights.
