A couple years ago, my father in law gave me his utility trailer. It needed alot of work so I got to it. I stripped it down to the frame, redid the wiring for the lights and gave it a new coat of paint. As I couldn't afford an AT or Chaser trailer, I decided to build my own out of pressure treated wood and go with the M101 look. The Trailer came with a 4 bolt axle and tiny tires. It just looked ridiculous. So, to get started, I needed to change the axle to a 5bolt pattern and found that both shackles had snapped off.

I've completed my Overland Trailer @duncan. I went with original M101 Michelin X tires and M101 fenders which I repainted black. @administrator  I will post more pics as I add "little" upgrades like sound system with bluetooth, lights when the top is open, digital thermostat, water spout and more.
