Our current setup. Not posting to discourage you or anyone on a budget, just trying to hopefully give you some ideas as some folks can great creative and make some very nice things for very little. I'm lucky to outfit our rigs being we manufacture these items. I remember my first trailer was an open one that barely held my kart on it. My first enclosed was a homemade job that we built a wooden tire rack and mocked up some shelves. When I had some extra money we got some of the outdoor type carpet for the floor. In all due time for everything. :)

Once could check on Craigslist, Marketplace or get in touch with local building supply company to see if there are any cabinets and countertops from tear-out/remodel jobs.

Inexpensive totes are great for organizing and storage.

The light on the overhead cabinet I bought at a Garage Sale for a buck. Adds some nice additional light and ambience..

Jeff’s trailer is freaking awesome and the standard of what excellent setups should be! If you’re looking at a budget friendly setup, definitely check out this thread:

Absolutely! I think most people on here have humbleness. We definitely don’t “show off”. We are all blessed in different ways and just want to inspire people no matter how cheap or expensive to give ideas. Thanks to everyone on here!
