Off grid camping trailer build

So I got in a argument with the 55 gallon drum fenders and we broke up. Good news though I found some scrap steel at work, from when I was building out welding trucks. So today we have flat fenders!!
Those look good, are you going to dog-ear the corners?

Got the fenders loosely bolted on this evening and welded the rack to the bed. I also started playing with ideas for my rear jack mount areas and removable mud flap locations.

I like the round over you marked out on the corners. Just a thought but have you considered welding small metal tubing to the outside edge, Like armor..
I didn’t think that exact thought, but something similar. I’m now thinking of just putting rubber edging on it and keep it simple looking. I’m going to be putting sliders to help protect the front of the fender.
I’m reconsidering the round over. I may do a straight line cut back that goes through the jack support, to help it all tie together.

I framed mine out in 3/4” tubing. The idea for me was to make them stout enough to stand on when deploying the tent, unloading etc.

I’ll have to give that some thought. Not sure I would have the need to stand on them in most situations. There could be that time though.

I wonder if I can get away without mud flaps 🤔
