Hey all, I am new to this forum, I recently purchased a 1980 wells cargo trailer, it was previously used as a food trailer but it was gutted out. I wish I had been on this site before I bought this thing but its mine now and we have to make the best of it. One of the biggest pains about it is the door opens to the tongue of the trailer. which makes it complex when it comes to mounting a generator. I will post pics as soon as I can.

I have to insulate the trailer is there any recommendation for the best insulation for a trailer, I'm just outside of philly so the winters are cold and the summers are hot.

Thanks, is that better than the fluffy stuff, and do you glue that in or staple it in? How far south are you in Delaware, I'm next to Claymont.

Do you know anybody who welds SS, when I got this trailer the lady who had the trailer before me cut the equipment stand to fit in a deep fryer, it was so dumb, I would like to salvage it if I can.
