Off grid camping trailer build

Arrcherr

Caught the Bug
I think about getting a camping trailer setup all the time. I really wonder just how much use I'd get out of it here in the Midwest.

Got a little more done the last couple days. Lots and lots of sanding. Then was able to put some primer on it. Then since I was missing the front of the bed, I made a section out of a old cabinet and welded it in. Also my other rim showed up so mounted that tire yesterday. Now I just need to prep the tailgate.
My other parts should be here beginning of the week some time.
Looking good...

Got the tailgate prepped and primed. Got new pins for the tailgate and just like that I have a fully functional trailer bed! I’ll most likely do a different pin style but for now this works.
My shop air compressor shut off and wouldn’t kick back on. So I should probably address that at some point.

I don’t sit still very well so... I started mapping out the frame work for the trailer. Just to start getting an idea of measurements.

that's a nice project. I'm always going back and forth between wanting a RTT or trailer.

What I need is a Jeep with slide outs lol

Started on the frame work today.
Also picked up the steel for the rack the RTT will mount to.

Pulled a bumper off a old truck bed trailer, we have sitting on the back of the property. Should work well on this trailer.

Parts showed up!! Had to start seeing where ride height would be. I’m going to bring it up two more inches.
