    Default trailers

    I'm about to redue this trailer and i'm starting to shop around for parts. The lighting on the trailer now is old school so i plan to replace it all. Wondering what kind of lights you guys are using, where you found the best deals, also not really sure whats required when it comes to lighting and being legal. Obviously the back i just need stop/turn/running but what about the sides? I want to add running lights on the side, alot of them, because it makes it easyer to see what the trailer is doing at night, i also plan to put turn signals on the side but are they required before and after the trailer wheel, or only before or behind? Post some pics, looking for ideas to steal.

    truckers toy stores are always a good place to go for a shytload of lites.

    As far as the rear, in cali, make sure there's reflectors..either in the lights themselves..or add on red on the back. makes it visible when parked with lights off at night..it's just a chicken shyt cvc section but i actually had a recall on my weekend warrior because they didn't have the reflectors on the rear.

    Overtons or Iboats both have complete sets of whatever you need. I redid mine with a set of LEDs, they won't blow out in the water and they look cool too! I think I paid $100.00 for the set? How about your inner fenders?

    LED's are the way to go, a little pricey but worth it in the long run. I'm going to upgrade mine to LED's soon. The truck/trailer places and big truckstops usually have large assortments of lights. Usually good deals on Ebay as well. I'm not sure about side turn signals on the trailer in Cali, but we don't have to have them here in Tx.
    What are you going to make your inner fender covers out of? Mine need replacing too and I'm trying to decide which way to go with them.

    1/2" treated plywood and some marine carpet worked good for me.

    That's what I was kinda thinking. 1/2" should hold up pretty well. I can just use my old ones to make patterns from. I want to redo the bunk carpet anyway.

    Shaun, I have the same style of Allen trailer under my Rogers. The first pic shows it in its original factory look, with the upholsterd steps. I went thru and welded all the old holes, sanded and primed for the painter. Layed out the new lights and drilled everthing before it went to the painter. I got those oval LED's from Dana Marine, I liked the way they went with the radius steps. The last pic shows it with tuck in roll paded steps and fender pads(old school). I used marine ply for the fenders and steps, stainless thru bolts and resin coated everything. For the bunks, I use pressure treated lumber and set the thru bolts under the carpet.

    My 1/2" ply fender inner panels are circa 1989, and are in fine condition (exterior grade).

    I re-did my lights LED too.
    The marker lights ahead of and behind the fenders (1 ea) came from Wal-Mart, work great. Yellow ahead, red behind the tire (only 7 or 8" ahead of teh back edge of the trailer)
    The stt's are the ovals set in a rubber gromet, came from a trailer mfr. (locally). I think they set me back $35 ea.

    The center tripple under the pump was brand new (not LED) so didn't get replaced, but, 1 is dead now and the housings looking poorly, will likely get done this winter too. 3 on a bar tho, so done as 3 singles to the bar.

    Good luck.

    Mine are padded and covered with vinyl or something, feels like some sort of carriage bolt behind there with a lockwasher and nut on the inside of the fender.
