Recent trailer chat made me ponder if there is someone in email-land
that can assist.
I have an enclosed 26' (floor) trailer. It is 8'6" tall. I bought an
hydraulic four column lift (backyard-buddy) so that I can get two cars
into the box trailer.
It is in place and functional.
It works great.
Question: How to secure it to the trailer. The trailer has steel
channel (1.5") uprights (studs) on 16" centers. The inside wall is
.030" aluminum and the outside is .050" aluminum. I know that the
aluminum is screwed into the uprights every 6" thereby "shearing" the
wall pretty well. It however must flex as it moves along the hwy.
How to install a very rigid steel structure (lift) within a flexible
box? If I attach it to the walls it may tear the trailer -as the
trailer rolls along the road...
Securing it to the floor is simple. But, what about the top of the
posts? I don't want the thing to move with a car on it...
