I'm sure someone has mentioned it but you definitely want an air mover or two for speed drying etc

Yes. Thank you. I have one air mover, and plan to get another.

This is my new Atlas Cargo Trailer for my business. A ramp, a side door, wall studs 16 inch oc, no osb, no luan, 15 inch tires/rims, etc. Next is lettering, but the black looks so good, I hesitate to cover any of it up with lettering. I like the size of this thing, 5' x 8'.

Notice the wheels are setting more toward the back, to help with tongue weight. I've stood on the back of this thing with the ramp down (not hooked up to my jeep), and it didn't budge (granted the ramp was down, but it is not a stopper kind of ramp).

The key thing about this unit was not the color, or the size necessarily, but the ramp. I love the ramp. Second, the size is the sweet spot for my current set up. Third, this thing is built well. It's built for professional use, not homeowner casual use.

3 year warranty. Great parts and service at the place I bought it. They installed several d rings for me for basically the cost of the rings.

Beautiful trailer, now you get to outfit it out and stuff it full of your stuff. How tall is the trailer on the inside?

5 foot. Shorter than the Pace (?) model at the same place. Yet, the Pace one was a step down in quality, and did not have a side door (Yet it was significantly cheaper than the Atlas).

Now, that side door should be good in working with the Nautilus from two perspectives, one to drain it (out the door?), and the ramp entrance for hose connections? Will try out some configs. Balance will be a little tricky.

Attached is the price tag. They gave me a significantly better deal than that, so I, am grateful. It was great having my 9 year old son along with me, he loved the trailer store! Actually, he liked the 5x10 footer, white, but $3300 price tag. It was nice. But, not so much nicer that I could justify it. The one I bought seems very sufficient for my set up.

I have done several jobs with my 2 inch vac hose, at 50 feet especially, and it is amazing suction. So much so, I can see why I wouldn't want to use it at 50 feet only. It can lock down, and be harder to push/drag the wand, or the Bonzer.

I have also used 50 foot of 2 inch vac hose with 25 feet of 1.5 vac hose, and like that combo. Next, I hope to use a longer than 75 foot vac hose set up, likely adding another 2 inch 25 or 50 foot section, and see how it works. Yet, 2 inch at 50 foot might be too much suction, it starts to work against the operator, as in personal flow. Amazing.

Looking great Patrick, almost the same setup I have, have you thought of adding heat to your setup? I added a used Northstar hotbox and it works amazing...pretty heavy though!
Thank you. I like the Northstars. For now, I have two bucket heaters, even used one in the tank of the Nautilus extractor. When I think I am ready to add higher heat, I need to decide between the Northstar, Little Giant, and TM. I usually bring in my Nautilus into the homes I clean. I do have a seal a door, so I have run it from outside.

How do you run your machine, from a van? Do you have a seal a door? Are you using a 175 for anything? Do you have a CRB? Just curious, I have all those things, and recently used the 175 (13 inch/60 lbs) on a 3500 sf VCT strip and wax. Worked good. Pat
