I know it's here somewhere but I can't seem to find it

There must be a thread on mobile shops here somewhere?
I think TT posted one back when...It had a cool drop down side, Anyone else remember that? There seems to be quite an interest in making shops in sheds and I think to avoid zoning and building permits, why not make one in an enclosed trailer? That way the thieves could just roll off with all your tools,.... except for the sign on the side that says:
"There is absolutely nothing in here worth losing your life over" heh...heh..
I also suggested this for a spray booth. Wide door at the rear, 4 walls, roof and ceiling, mobile goes to the job site...just a thought.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

woodnthings, there was definitely someone who had a "mobile shop" listed either in the "show us your shop" thread or some other one. It was basically a small trailer, like a uhaul size or slightly larger with a few saws and whatnot that came out for working on large pieces and a couple tools that stayed inside the trailer. Now, not exactly what I think you're envisioning, but what you have in mind is certainly doable, in the right areas. Those with HOAs and/or no place to park a trailer might find it more difficult. I think the idea really has merit though. You also would have the benefit of not having to build a new one if you move somewhere different...
