Yes it will work inside an enclosed trailer. The key is being able to properly attach it to the wall and is the wall able to support it.

Good quality, somewhat challenging installation (at least for me)
Since there are a number of excellent detailed reviews including helpful tips, I won’t go into all the specs, etc. of this Folding Top Workbench. I’ll cut right to the chase and list the suggestions I found to be most helpful. If that’s all the info you want you can stop there, or if you have an interest in challenges that I faced then read on! These were 1.) Remove the mounting brackets from the table and install the brackets to the wall, then attach the top to the brackets. I’m going on 82 and installed it by myself, and there was no way to do it with the brackets and top as a unit. Quite frankly I give kudos to those who have managed to install the workbench as a complete unit in an hour or less by themselves – obviously you are younger folks! Because of some of the challenges I ran into it took me half a day. 2.) Use longer lag screws than those supplied. My garage, where I installed the workbench, has ½” drywall, so I substituted 3” Hex head lag screws with both lock and flat washers for the 2-1/2” screws provided in order to provide a firmer connection to the studs. 3. As recommended by other reviewers, instead of the cheap, flimsy ¾” #6 screws supplied to mount the top to the brackets, I used 1” #10 Hex head screws with both lock and flat washers. Just one look at the supplied screws conjured up visions of the screws either pulling out or shearing off and the top separating from the mounting brackets when either raising or closing the workbench. I wanted to install the workbench near my tool chests and rolling toolboxes near the back wall of my garage. As noted, the garage is drywalled which presented a couple of challenges. First, the construction is pretty shoddy (I’d use another adjective, but my review wouldn’t make it past the censors) with uneven framing, not only with spacing but with poor alignment. This resulted in drywall that that is not evenly flat and in some places it bows out so the top of the workbench would not fit flush against the wall. Unfortunately this condition was present where my first choice to install the workbench was, forcing me to move to the next closest area where the drywall wasn’t bowed. When I went to locate the studs in this section, I found that for some reason the studs here were not on 16” centers, but 14” apart. These conditions meant that the mounting brackets had to come off and be installed first, regardless of whether or not it could have installed as one unit. Working off the left side I determined how high I wanted the working surface to be – 36”. I measured the actual thickness of the top and found it to be 1-1/8”, not 1” as others have noted. I measured down 1-1/8” and marked where the top of the bracket should sit. Because the garage is drywalled I couldn’t physically see the studs to determine if they were straight, so after locating the edges of the stud where the top of the bracket would sit, using a level I drew a center line vertically down to where the bottom of the bracket would be. Adjacent to the holes in the bracket where the lag screws would go, I checked both sides of the bracket and found , as I suspected, that the studs were definitely sloppily installed and were either warped or not level vertically. This forced me to have to “cheat” in locating the bracket holes to make sure I would catch as much of the stud as possible while still keeping the bracket level vertically. NOTE , the brackets must be in the “up” position and locked in order to access the predrilled holes in the brackets. Drilling a 3/16” pilot hole for the top and bottom screws, I then used the 3” lag screws with lock and flat washer to fasten the bracket to the wall. At this point I only installed screws in the top and bottom holes so as to be able to make minor adjustments if needed after the right side bracket and top were installed. Using a 4’ level sitting on top of the left hand bracket I then determined where the top of the right hand bracket needed to be for the top to be level. I followed the same steps as for the left hand bracket, again only installing two screws, one top and one at the bottom. The next step was to position the top on the brackets to determine where the 1” #10 screws would go to account for the 2” shorter stud spacing. NOTE, because of the folding design, the mounting brackets necessarily have quite a bit of side to side slop in them, so I had first position the top so that the overhang on the outside of both brackets was equal, but also had to fine tune the positioning to ensure that the top portion of the bracket “ top arms” were 90 degrees from the wall. I then marked the hole locations, removed the top, flipped it over and drilled small pilot holes where I had marked the holes. Repositioned the top again on the brackets, lining up and centering the holes in the brackets with the pilot holes, and screwed in the 1” #10 screws with lock and flat washers. I then finished off by installing the rest of the 3” Hex head lag screws fastening the bracket to the wall. I’m sure the installation went a lot longer because of the problems encountered with the studs, but all in all the installation came out pretty good with only a miniscule gap at the left side between the wall and the workbench top where the drywall wasn’t flat. In retrospect, I probably should have taken a couple of reviewers suggestion to install a “backing” of ¾” or 1” thick plywood sheeting screwed to the drywall with the mounting brackets then attached to the plywood. This would have allowed me to use the pilot holes that were already drilled to conform to standard stud spacing. I was too far into the project to make another Home Depot run and just wanted to finish the project. In the end I’m pleased with the product and expect the installation to withstand the expected use. A closing note, the left hand lock doesn’t fully lock into position with normal lifting of the top, you have to lift that side a little beyond 90 degrees to make sure it locks in place fully. For this and the scrimping on heavy duty hardware I am giving the 4 Foot Folding Wood Top Workbench a 4 rating rather than a 5.

Very easy installation as long as you have a 36" level and have a stud finder. I did it myself after removing the hardware brackets and mounting them individually. You need to measure exactly 32" and the holes lined up perfectly for me. I found this as a real quality product.

Installed the work bench last evening. Great. I would recommend that one might want to take the top off first. The unit is heavy, which is good, but somewhat awkward if working by yourself. Make sure that the unit is level when installing to the wall studs. I put one bolt in when I had it placed where I wanted it to be. Then leveled it with the other leg. I found that the hole instructions were off a bit, just line the legs up and set in place. I may have taken about 45 minutes or so by myself, not bad at all. Great work area. Very sturdy. I located it a bit higher on the wall so I can use it when wood carving. I would recommend it to anyone.

This work bench is really a great, relatively simple way to have a stow-away table for many needs. It can be lifted into position with a single hand and automatically locks into place without needing to mess with the support brackets. It can mount at any height you desire and in order to get anywhere near the stated max support weight of 400 lbs, both legs will need to have each of their five screws going into studs. The legs are exactly 32" from screw hole to screw hole so make sure your studs are properly spaced before you start drilling. I measured for all holes but only drilled the top two on each side to limit any measurement errors lower down. Pilot holes can be easily placed later with the support brackets already mounted. The highest screw is about 5" below the table height and the table extends 8" outside each leg. The instructions say not to use this bench outside so I ditched my plan for it in the humid garage for a conditioned work space. The wall I needed has studs closer to the door frame so I actually notched a segment out of the door casing to allow the table to mount there with space for raising and lowering. The quality of the bench top is very good and provides a pretty decent area for any project you may want to do.

This is a very heavy duty wooden work table. Too heavy to install by one person unless you remove the mounting brackets from the wooden table. The brackets (2) are attached to the bottom with three (3) # 6 - 3/4-inch Phillips screws. Three on each bracket. Too flimsy for my preference. The brackets came off easy once the screws were removed, and facilitated mounting the brackets on the wall. You will need a level, a set of screwdrivers and some easily removable “painters” tape (PURPLE) to mark the drill holes for the brackets. This workbench is meant to mount on the studs behind the wall board. Unfortunately, the actual location of the studs would not allow the table to fit where I wanted it, so I used six (6) 100 Lb. drywall metal anchors that also open into a “molly” type anchor to mount the brackets to the vertical wall. It is very secure with these anchors. Old rule, measure twice and follow the instructions. I used the painter’s tape as a template. I gave it three stars because the locking mechanism can release easily by accident. I decided to drill two holes in the side of each vertical bracket so I could slip in a metal pin that would prevent an accidental un-locking of the hinge. The wooden table is VERY heavy duty and folds down. I then used six (6) #10 – 1-inch Phillips wood screws with a washer and a split ring locking washer to install the table to the horizontal arm on the bracket. Much sturdier than the #6 Phillips screws. All in all, a good workbench that can fold down easily but a pain to install.

Perfect workshop addition for wall space near a door! I have a double-door side entry to my shop ...
Perfect workshop addition for wall space near a door! I have a double-door side entry to my shop that is seldom used, but important when I do a big project. By installing the collapsible table on the wall near my door, I can better utilize my space, and still be able to drop the table when I need door access. I was able to get this installed in 45 minutes by myself, but the manual recommends 2 people. I made mine 37” high, the same height as a rolling tool-chest table surface that I have. To mount 37” high, I drilled a starter hole at 32.125” from the floor (3rd photo). Directions say to drill holes 32” apart (stud- skip a stud - stud). My table legs were an eighth-inch more, so check that before you drill. It was easy to hit the studs- I don’t (yet) have a wall covering in my shop! Each leg mounts with five hex-bolts. If you have a nut-driver attachment for your drill or impact wrench, use a 10mm hex head, or a large Phillips will work. The manual says 3/16” starter holes, but for pine studs, I went one size smaller, 11/64” with good results. One of the hinge bolts came out during shipping, but that was easily fixed with two wrenches (last photo). I love the rugged, all-wood look of this table, and it collapses easily by pressing up on two levers simultaneously. The manual says this will support 400 lbs when properly installed - I believe it!

Whalen Industrial 22.66 in. H x 48 in. W x 24 in. D Steel and Wood Folding Wall Mount Workbench comes pre-assembled all you need to do is install 5 screws on each down support and you have a convenient workbench that sits about 4” from the wall closed up. This can be used for many things, not made to beat on in my opinion, like adding a vise, but it will take a licking, it folds down after all. The lock is convenient, gravity pulls down the lock to keep the stop in place and by lifting and pushing with your fingers you can lower the top down, easily. The instructions are helpful in showing you how to plan the install. The instructions and the screws are packaged so you cannot miss them. It's well made and heavy duty with the thickness of the support metal at 2.25mm and the tube side support about 9mm thick. I had several places in mind to install one or more of these and decided at the mouth of my garage where I will repot my house plants and perform those sorts of tasks. I am installed it on a ½” piece of plywood using bolts and nuts and then installing the plywood to the basement studs using the included screws. That way sheetrock has no impact on the surfaces firmness and I will get the most support raising the load my workbench will carry and allowing me to use more than two wall studs for overall support. I am really very pleased with it.
