Pretty sure this is the same box/bed we've got on our work truck. I wish ours had half the amenities of yours! Great work.

WOW! that must be a lot of gear, 4,000 lbs.

Sometimes I think I would like a service bed on my truck but then realize that if I had all that storage space it would be filled with stuff.


Well, there is: "Minimalist backpacking & camping", "Roughing it" camping, then there is "regular" camping, then there is "glamping", then there is "luxo-glamping". Pic the poison that you can afford & are comfortable doing.

I had my fair share of minimalist and roughing through Scouts. The trailer suits my current wants right now and can go most places I want to take my truck. Im sure I will want to get a real trailer when I get older.

Any pictures with it set up and the tent open? What type of RTT do you have mounted on it?

Re: New (soon to be offroad) Trailer....Stage 2

Hi everybody. Been working on my trailer again. I have replaced the suspension with something better suited for off road. It previously had the standard short trailer springs that were really stiff and not really any travel. The new stuff seems perfectly balanced for the trailer and weight. It is Chevy 1 ton springs with the bottom 3 leaves removed and some 5100s for a Chevy 1 ton as well. I used the bump stops from my truck since I now have air bags. The bump stops were not installed yet when this picture was taken.

Image

I have also extended the bed slide to the front of the bed and narrowed it to allow easier access to my solar panel and tables on the side. Plus removed the vice, cut off some bracing that did not need to be on there, and some other minor improvements that align better with how we use the trailer.

I am currently looking for some bigger wheels and tires. Then will be a Foxwing awning and an off road hitch.

Hi everybody. I finally got to the point of being 'done' on the trailer. I have no more plans for any further upgrades. I have recently added a Foxwing awning, some new 235/85/16 tires (including new spare), added some additional area lighting, and repacked the bearings. I am very happy with the current state of the trailer. Also included a pic of my new solar panels for the fun of it.

The lights are from Amazon. They work great for the price.
