hey guys just wanted to say hey and show you all a few shots of my trailer I've been building for the last month or so, it started life as a harbor freight super duty trailer frame and there's not much left of that! First things first I switched out the axle for a 3500lb u it with 31/10.50/15 tires, added a front to rear 2x2 steel backbone that has a 2" receiver on each end, next was the floor and sides which consist of 1/8" Steel diamond tread for the floor and 2"X1" rectangle uprights with 1/8" steel sheet wall. I plan on adding onboard water and electric and a roof top tent as well with the hopes of goin to a off-road teardrop at some point. Anyway here are a few pics and yes it still needs sandblasted and painted! Lol

I'll watch this with great interest. Looks like a very nice base trailer to work from, Jason.

Just retired from 10days in Florida to attend jeepbeach and to do some camping and such. Spent several nights in the national forest in Ocala fl. And it was awsome as was the activities at jeepbeach! Got to visit the shop of Panther trailer company which makes small overland style campers which are awsome and we will def be needing one someday but as for now it's back to work on mine.
