IN the 80's I worked for Saunders Truck Rental and we built a trailer with a trolly and lift to help with repairs on large equipment. Was a great help. Depending on what you are using it for extend the Trolly Rail so you can lift up and push it in. You might want to put a stands to put the back of the trailer. Pics when you get it..

I've thought about having it extend out some, but don't think it's necessary. I'll have a cherry picker to lift things with, and then I can just trade it off from the picker to the ibeam.

I'm probably going to gave them start building in February. Good tip on the stands in the back

I would put in a set of beams or tracks in the bottom of the trailer with a cart fitted to the beam width and a rack for outboards. If needed (due to motor weight" I would mount an electric wench to assist towing it into the trailer. With the correct ball bearing rollers on the cart you could simply push it into the trailer. Just like a low boy trailer which hauls railroad equipment but on a much smaller scale. That way the beams take up minimal space inside the trailer and the cart with the outbord rack/stand can be removed from the trailer when not needed. Minimal weight and negligible room required to install. Heck the rail could be 1x1 angle iron.

It should be completely out of the way. It will be above my head and out of the way.

I do have some ideas for makeshift "stands" to split the weight from solely resting on the ibeam.
