I have my trailer, which I debate wether to keep or not. I wish it was a bit different and therefore more useful, but.....at least it has a VIN, plate and the tongue could be moved to a new unit...so I am more than half way there!

You should fix it. It 's only metal.

Also if you need some work done let me know. I'll hook you up. I will take it to my place and fix it up to your specs. And if you need a trailer to barrow till then I can lend you mine in that time. I might just pick up one of those Tepui tents for this trailer some time in the future. Well as long as the price is right too.

Hey check out this video.... interesting


Wowwww, they must be 52's on that thing ..... (the tractor) .... anyone get the "Blue Peter" reference? I doubt that any non-Brits understood that.

Brits do like their "caravans" though .... try this one . Top gear would be proud!

Graeme

Wow... I thought I would of gotten it right in one of these forums... I misspelled the title both times... Oh man. And I was told by Antonio that I posted this in the Members section only. I didn't know why I didn't catch any of these. My bad.

Anyway. I got to some point where I need to get this finished sooner. I started this two days ago.

It all fits and now I can move this around and not need my jack stands. I'm heading to the storage to start the gates today. I had the day off from work.

Got these for free and found good use for them

The idea now is to make a frame and build the sides.

Next is to do both sides and paint. Then possibly a rear ramp. ?? Who knows. I might do something crazy and build a lift gate..... HAHAHAHAH

Ideas anyone?


For the supports, rather than legs, go for some 'telescopic' tube-in-tube pull-out supports. Basically weld a tube horizontally under the main part and have a tube inside that that pulls out (and stops on a screw that you have tapped in to the end of it). One on each end. Hard to explain, but you see it on RVs quite a lot for tables and things.

Regards,

Graeme

Thanks again for the kind words.

I'm trying to get everything ready for the Pismo trip on September 21. Both the trailer and the head gaskets on the discovery. We will rent ATV's on Saturday and go all around the dunes. I'm more of the crazy one that does crazy things on the quad. So I'm renting the 400. The wife and her sister are just going to ride normally. But I'll push them to go up and down some steep hills.

During my little pismo trip I broke my axle on the beach.... So I'm redoing the axle with another. I just realized I still have a Toyota axle sitting I got it for free and I'm now needing an axle... I was thinking of buying a Land Rover axle from someone for dirt cheap and figured why not just put a Toyota axle under it in the mean time. I have a brand new 3,500 # trailer axle with the same 6 on 6.5 bolt pattern with electric brakes but would hate to use it on this one. I'm going to use the stock axle for this small trailer and just build another one that is worth the electric brakes later.

I have a spare set of wheels for both. So this trailer is going Toyota for now. If anyone needs a trailer for their Toyota for camping this will be for sale soon. I'm not planning on keeping it much longer since I have bigger plans now that I'm out of my 4 Runner and driving my 4.2 5 speed D1. Oh man this thing is a beast.

yeah i got one...no not really. well not yet. a friend of mine recently picked one up and asked me about roof rack options so i told him i'd look into it. i know about the SD racks and voyager. anyone else? incidentally, this same friend goes thru cars like crazy so he'll tire of this soon and i'll swoop it off his hands. i figure i might as well put a rack on it that i like :-)
