Putting together a small trailer package and would be grateful for any ideas on storing 5/8 pipe and 11/4" speedrail. I have various lengths and the shorter variety is creating a mess.
Speedrail and 5/8 lengths

Store the short lengths (up to 6') vertically in a wheeled plywood box with multiple wood dividers. Like a pipe organ. Strap the rolling box to the walls for transport..

Thanks JD for the response. I'll look into building something like this

JD's method is how I do it. Its easy to make and very easy to find the size you want and access it.

Thanks so much Sanjay. Would you have a picture to share of the set up?

I will take one the next time I am at my truck. But its pretty straightforward.

For longer pipe I store in the lumber rack on my truck. The ends are painted for easy recognition. 12' = red, 10' green, 8' black, and 6' yellow. These colors carry over to the 1" square tubing used for overhead frames and for the actual bags the overheads are stowed in. So, for example, a 12x grid cloth will be in a marked red bag and take 4 red pipe, and a set of corners and ears. Hope this helps.
