I like the rear stabilizers. What the height from the ground to the bottom of your frame. I was going to do something like that, but was afraid the stands wouldn't be long enough.
28” The adjustable legs turned out nicely, should help to level it on uneven terrain.

ERR MEHH GRRD!!! This trailer is beautiful, however being from Oklahoma I can't help but notice your bottle opener is mounted upside down. Other than that it is exactly what I aspire to have for myself at some point.

What kind of solar set up did you use?
Synthesis is the brand name. 30w, was like 45$ and then a 15$ amazon controller hooked up to a donated old deep cycle. Works nicely, but we have a pretty low demand on the system.

Thank you!

So do you guys drink your beer upside down??

Got some sick photos of the setup at San Lorenzo canyon

Got a few more camp photos





And we had our first rain storm. A day and a half worth lol, I thought we were in the desert?



Awning works well. Tent had been mostly dry. The mattress touches the wall of the tent in a few places where it’s not covered by the fly (or the rain hits at an angle) and got a little wet, not the end of the world though.

Here is the trip report if anybody’s interested

Absolutely awesome build love that you built it yourself hats off to you !!
Thank you very much!

Nicely done. It looks like a fun project. Hope the shake down run goes good for you.
Thanks! Using it has been very rewarding and it’s going pretty well!

That's a great looking trailer! Mind sharing how many hours and total budget it took to complete?
Thanks! Didn’t keep great track of hours but it took about a month straight of me working with more then a few days from my dad and fiancé. Don’t have the numbers in front of me, but it’s probably pushing 2k and about half of that is metal alone. And that’s reusing wheels, tires, rtt and battery

What changed would you add, or subtract. I'm on the slower side of my build, but it's coming along.

Slower is better, it lets you be more thorough and thoughtful on the small stuff. I wish I had more time to work through some of my little details that popped up on me and I just blasted through to meet my deadline.

The most common complaints I’m finding myself wish I would have spent more time on is regarding day to day packing and unpacking. The kitchen slide out is great, could be more optimized with another drawer, but it’s close. The rear area however is a lot of unloading and reloading. We have a huge 70q ice chest and we’re using 7 gallon water jugs. A slide out refrigerator/ ice chest would be awesome as well as an onboard water tank. Just those two things would simplify a lot of moving stuff.

Other than that, everything is pretty good. Paint and bed liner haven’t held up perfectly, as to be expected. I guess you get what you pay for with paint.
