trailer winch in cabinet

New trailer is being built and I'm planning the winch layout. The winch will be in the side cabinet. Anyone have any input or pictures how they went with the winch from the side to some type of cable mount in the center of the trailer. I was thinking of doing a d ring and a snatch block.

No photos here, just an opinion. Kinda like the "D" ring attachment method over the vertical post method. Less to trip over when not in use...

"D" ring might take a bit more load too...

Top one is mine. No issues crawling under the car, sliding in and out. Since then I have gone to the nylon rope, probably right after the picture was taken. I pull the pin and move the rope out of the way when working. Have even gone out my side door to an open trailer and pulled his broken car on his trailer for him, with another snatch block.

I took the ring out, welded a pc of tube to the block and put the bolt back through. I wanted it permanent. Just like the aluminium sheet on the floor, I have never had an issue, tripping or slipping. I am sure if you positioned the d ring in the right spot as compared to the winch and clipped the snatch block with a clevis instead of a hook, you could make it removable.

was thinking of putting a d ring on the floor then using something like this so I can take it on and off so I'm not tripping on it.

In the past I've used something like you posted above and it worked just fine. On the trailer I have now, I had the winch put in the floor and it has worked great.

It will have a winch plate in the side cabinet and then a small hole for the cable to go through

I need to mount my winch, and was planning to put it on the front bulkhead, about 6-8 inches above the floor. Dead center or a shade to the Right of center, since the golf cart goes tight to the left wall, and toolbox/cabinet/generator & compressor sit at front to the R. Only reason I haven't done so, was the idea of an unsightly reinforcing plate on the outside front of the trailer. Was going to ask for suggestions or pictures of how others did theirs, but I may have to do something like what these guys are, with a snatch block.

I have mine in the front cabinet centered on the floor. I built a steel block to raise the height ~8" to clear the cabinet frame the door is on.
Works fine

What thickness did you use on the floor? My coin floor is shot, I like the idea of smooth aluminum.
