When considering a shipping container sometimes a simple modification like adding a mandoor can make the world of difference.

Why add a door to a one trip shipping container?

1) Opening a mandoor is far easier than opening the barndoors on the end. Seacan doors can be heavy and hard to open & close, especially if the container is not sitting square.

2) When you open the barn doors you open the entire end of the container and usually leave it open whilst your inside. A complete exchange of air takes place.  If you're in a cold climate or even a humid climate the air rushing through those open container doors is full of moisture.  Modifying a seacan with a mandoor allows you to slip in and out with negligible air exchange.  Wet air will freeze on the walls and cause condensation on the inside of the container.

3) Putting a mandoor at the opposite end of the container to the barn doors allows you better access to the contents.  The barn door end is great for stuff you drive into the container.  Use the mandoor end for smalls and hand tools.

Of course a further very useful modification on a one trip seacan is a window.  Enter the container - no torch necessary.  Also consider the safety.  If someone accidentally ( or on purpose) closed the door you are in there forever if you don't have a window.

Tip: Don't argue with the wife just before entering the container!
