I haven't done anything with this since I posted it here (by request).
Working on other stuff now.

Hello, we are very interested in this container, it is convenient to add contact information to discuss it specifically?

Which position have the sides on the table? Will them stay or lie?

Hi! what panels are required to assemble 40 feet? that would be on the trailer you could put a 2x20 or 1х40!

Beau travail !!! simple mais efficace !!

Hello, do you recomend me this for an empthy flatbed?

Can you tell me where you used the U profiles? I couldn't fine a proper usage for them. Is it for the floor of the container? The video doesn't clearly show them.
Thank you,

You don't "have" to use them, you can use L-profiles all over.
I used them to the roof and shortsides.

how many bits of "L" angle did you use?

I don't know. Printed a bunch and cut them with a scissor.

Thanks, Eficker :-)
I think the corners are strong enough, haven't broken any yet.
Anyone can build a trailer with the parts that are available now.
The only thing that's missing is a flatbed, but that can be done with
just a container floor. I'm going to do a 40' myself.

What kind of crane did you have in mind?

When you connected the trailer to the top of the container, this was all I could picture in my mind:

It would be a lot of work. Perhaps down the road a bit, we could collab on one. :)

Hmm, a lot of work but I don't see any major difficulties, besides that it requires a lot of space.
But otherwise.....
I had something smaller in mind, such as:

This is awesome!
I love this and now need to make one (or two).
How strong are the corner bits? I bet with all the sides and top installed its pretty strong.
I can't wait for the trailer. And is there a crane in the future? :)
