Get yourself some earth anchors, there's various ones out there. I used 4 that holds down a 10 x 10 patio roof, been there for 5 years and has not budged an inch. Here's one. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Vortex-16-in-Steel-Folding-Ring-Spiral-Ground-Anchor-ANCFR16-ORG-A/202703690 and here's some more. https://www.rona.ca/en/shelterlogic-shelterauger-earth-anchors-30-in-4-pack-10075-330736988

Check any anchor points on the trailer carefully before buying anything. That trailer is almost 40 years old. Hopefully this good deed...if you proceed...won't come back to bite you like the carpet.


Anchor points -- like studs? That trailer is made better than anything on the road today. The roof hasn't leaked a bit. They made them better back then. As for the carpet...it was 8 years old and threadbare. The creepy park sex-addict snuck up behind me while I was spraying them down and I was so distracted it rested too long on one spot. I bought her some new higher-quality carpet and told him where to "step" off.

Why not some 4 x 4's bolted to the already existing deck with a lid?
