    Ours does too ... there's a beater kit in the rehearsal space. The gig rig lives in their cases in the trailer.

      I don't have a trailer (or van) dedicated to audio gear, so all of my stuff gets unloaded after every show. I wouldn't have any qualms with leaving drums in the trailer, though. Just make sure you give them an hour or so to acclimate in the venue before you start trying to play them. Give them a quick tuning and they'll play just fine.

        No room. I thought there might be. If I dont bring lights and truss there is.



        But I always brings lights n truss...

          The drummer leaves his drums in my trailer. He never tunes them and they sound like **************** on stage. He uses triggers so they sound great out front. I wish he would tune his drums.



          I even said one time "how would you like it if I didn't tune my guitar" He just looked at me.



          What can ya do.

            My drummers kit is in the trailer. I live in Montana where it can get very cold.

                I've seen (cough... uh... own) drums that have cracked shell skins due to too cold of cold. I've seen (cough... uh... own) drums that have buckled/warped shell skins due to too much heat.



                Natural wood finish drums of-course don't have shell skins to worry about.

                  Just noting the assumption that it is HIS drums.....does anyone have a female drummer in their band ?

                      nope, for one reason there isn't room in the trailer or van. For another, he always carries them personally to the gigs.

                        Here's my take: I wouldn't keep my drums in a trailer unless it could be parked in a secure location. Inside a garage or behind a locked fence. Nothing to do with the climate, just security. Of course, being in southern California, extreme cold is not an issue. The temps in August can soar to over 110 degrees though. I would bet that it could probably get to 120 or 130 inside the trailer. I wouldn't want to have my drums exposed to that kind of heat.
                        Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138
