E-Track Recommendations for Making a Queen Size Bed on Inside of Enclosed Trailer

Question:

Im looking to build a queen sized bed inside a cargo trailer using the e-track system. For the platform, I was planning to use three 2x4 supports across the width of the trailer using the 2inch lumber e-track sockets with a piece of 3/8inch plywood on top. Can you suggest the best setup for the e-track pieces themselves? Should I use 6 2foot sections, 2 8foot sections or something else? The e-track will be screwed into the 3/8inch plywood walls of the trailer. Max sleeping weight of the bed would be 375lbs.

Helpful Expert Reply:

The correct product to use to support the boards you plan on using to support the bed would be the E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149.

Since you will want to have the 2 by 4s on edge to support the plywood, and the only way the # 59149 could be installed in this fashion is if the e-tracks are installed horizontally on your trailer walls. I would recommend using two etracks that will be on either side of the trailer interior walls running horizontally at the height that you want the bed to be.

I would use two sets of the # E19135 for this. This is an 8 foot section of the e-track.
