I did a search but there doesn't seem to be a lot of pictures.

He has an enclosed trailer that he fully pimped out - just like what you're thinking of doing. He had a post on it a while back. Good luck!
Found the link on his trailer: Toyota_MDT_Tech's trailer

The CD player and speakers are mounted in a box I made out of partical board and then glued the white FRP (Fiber re-inforced paneling..available at lowes or home depot) and trimmed it out with aluminum angle. The power comes from a 12v battery mounted in the diamond plate toolbox on the tongue. It is fed through conduit under the trailer then up through the floor into and RV AC/DC distribution panel (it has AC breakers on one side and automotive fuses on the other side). From here each AC and DC circuit is on it's own fuse/breaker.
Also I didn't mention how the water tanks work. They are RV fresh water tanks that I covered with diamond plate for protection (because they are very thin). The 1 1/2" plumbing of the tank goes through the floor into a tee and then out a spigot on the drivers side. The tanks are "backfilled" through the spigot... that is what the vent hose out the top is for. I also put valves on the vents so water doesn't splash out or leak out if stopped on a hill.
$180 diamond plate box
Converter/charger.. took from motorhome
CD player... already had laying around
wiring....most of it laying around
$120 two pingle removable wheel chocks
$150 (I think!) tool chest in the middle
$90 water tanks
$30 assorted plumbing parts (spigot etc.)
two sheets of partical board to build stuff (don't remember price)
two sheets of the white FRP I used to cover the stuff I built
aluminum angle to trim the pieces I built
Assorted diamond plate stuff (free if a friend has a job that allows him access to the materials and equipment)
Closet-Made shelving sides and up front around $150 total probably
And here's the center tool chest/cabinet thing: Stack-On Tool Chest
He originally linked me to www.toolking.com as having it...but it doesn't look like they carry it anymore. It's a "Stack-On PSCS-5, Silver Steel Plastic Tool Tower".
Hope this helps.

I bolted three strips of e-track in - two are 8" away from each sidewall with another down the center of the trailer (running front to back). I welded two more strips along the lefthand wall - one about 16" off the floor and another 16" from the top of the wall. This will let me strap a pop-up against the wall, etc.
If you want to be able to pull the wheel chocks out to carry other stuff at times - then I would go with pingel wheel chocks. If you are only using the trailer to haul bikes, then a bike shoe is nice - roll the bike in and clamp down the front wheel with no tie-downs to worry about, etc.
For flooring - I would stay away from the floor tiles - they are relatively heavy and aren't very resistant to fuel, etc. I have herculiner bedliner kit stuff for the floor - it is available in grey - which is nice.

I made the short trip to Cheyenne, WY and bought from Garry at The Box Shop. Here is a link with his current inventory and pricing. All the CO dealers I called were quite higher in price and Garry was great to deal with. I would definitely buy from him again.

I ordered the trailer 6 inches lower in height with 2 windows. It has an RV door and rear ramp. I insulated it, installed cabinets, bathroom with a porta potti, 110v panel, microwave, fridge, sink, table, fold down bunks etc.
The trailer easily holds my wr250, a wolverine and a blaster.
I would like to talk to toyota about some of the electrical that he has set up in his trailer so that I can make a few more modifications.

lol, thanks...but I can't take credit for that. As I said in my original post, I had them saved (along with the quotes/description) from when I saw a guy post those pictures on another MX forum that I visit.
I have an identical size trailer, so I want to set mine up like that eventually though.

Do you have a water heater and stove? I see there are two faucets. What is going on there?
