Good morning everybody, i finally finished my trailer (for the most part). So i wanted to share this with everybody. @Racer has been a huge influence in this and has been a huge help for me along the way. Anyway, my name is Dominick and I’m in the South Florida area (along with 8,075,976 other washers) I haven’t posted much but I’ve been reading this forum for a little over a year now as well as all the facebook groups. Essentially just non-stop reading everything i can. I’ve been washing for a few years now as a side business and im growing more and more. My wife and I just had a baby and also bought our first house about 6 months ago so once we had a garage i was finally able to start building my rig. I only have a small 1 car garage so this was the biggest trailer i could fit in there while still being able to access the washer and dryer in the back of the garage.
I wanted to post this thread because i feel like we were overdue for a solid trailer build that will really help guys in building their own rigs. I want this to help guys with their layout, or as a reference with plumbing, anything and everything. I will be more than happy to help with where i bought certain things or little tips that i figured out along the way (such as the holders for my hoses), as well as prices so you have an understanding of how much can go into these rigs. I went a little overboard and did Stainless Steel on literally everything i possibly could from the fittings on my pressure hose to all the nuts, bolts and washer for mounting things to the trailer. I’m also waiting on my friend, he designed my logo and now hes building the design for the sign i will have on the rear gate. Pics of that will follow in the next few weeks.
Anyway, lets get down to it…

I might be missing a few things so if i think of them i’ll add it to this list or if questions get asked i can add or just post more pics.
I still have to build my 12V setup but i kinda ran out of money doing all of this lol. I will keep this thread active as i progress with that portion of the build. If you have any questions about the build, where i bought things, how much were they, i would be glad to help. I hope this helps everybody.
