Cargo Trailer Shelving Ideas | Adrian SteelCargo trailers are an extremely versatile and practical way to transport the tools of your trade. Simply hook the trailer up to your hitch, and you can take your work with you, no matter where you go! Cargo trailers are spacious, which is great when you have a lot of equipment to carry, but not so great if you don’t have a way to keep it organized. Check out these ingenious cargo trailer shelving ideas that will help you make the most of the space in your trailer.

Make Your Shelving Work For You

Not every trade professional uses their trailer shelving the same way. With Adrian Steel’s Heavy Duty KD Shelving Units, you can adjust the shelves to meet your individual needs. The KD Shelf Unit for cargo trailers comes with shelf gussets, end panel braces, and full floor-rail for extra strength and durability.

Utilize Accessories

Maximize the shelving in your trailer by adding on upfit accessories. A door kit will transform an ordinary shelf into a lockable cabinet. Hook bars can be attached to end panels to increase storage capabilities even further.

Integrate Other Storage Options
