Now that I have room in the back of the car, I prefer not carrying things on the trailer floor, also. The top drawer of the clothes chest does go on the floor but is easy to lift back to its place. I used to carry enough things that they didn't need strapping down as they filled the two foot wide space. But this is better. Xpens and chairs go in the Forester cargo area and only things used in the trailer store in the trailer.

Just about everything I carry inside the trailer is in a cupboard or drawer- on my open shelves I use small boxes that fit snug enough to stay put. I've also installed (riveted to interior walls) a few extra coat hooks- those are handy for hanging bags of "stuff" if necessary. This works well for fragile things like bread, eggs, produce.

I like to keep the inside floor clear so I can use the trailer en route- I do occasionally put a lawn chair/side table under the table- a bungee cord on the table leg keeps them in place.

Storage bin under the bed, with a tension rod to secure. Perfect!

Small folding chairs and tables ride either under the table or in the bathroom.

I always found the smaller the trailer the bigger the tug you need. inside the trailer the more delicate or important the item you carry the more important that it be kept as close to the hitch as possible. anything aft of the axle is in for a roller coaster ride. The further back the worse it is.

There's something to be said about Steve's comment, "the smaller the trailer the bigger the tug you need."
There's lots of stuff in the back of the truck, I try to keep it all below window level, mostly succeed.

That just seems so wrong to me...I bought a small trailer to match my daily driver/Grandchildren hauler so I wouldn't have to drive a truck.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

My upright Coleman cooler and aux. grey water tank ride in the John. I have restraint for the cooler. Generally, if you don't have tie down rings like a toy hauler, you have to jam it, tighten it up, block it, pad it.

Wowzers! 2Kayaks and a bike, all inside!! I never could have imagined fitting so much gear inside, and second never would have thought even one of those items would even slide through the door. That's so great!

Have you thought about getting a lockable tonneau cover for the bed of your truck
You could store items that need to stay dry in plastic tubs with lids in the bed of the truck, along with your outdoor equipment
