I second the motion.


I built it from an M116A2 trailer. took it down to the frame, and helped my buddy build it. I basically learned how to weld on this thing. Everything from the frame up has been added. I got some custom canvas put on it, and a tepui tent on the top. works wonderfully as a camping trailer. I loaded it up with everything to make camp, and have extra room to spare for food and other perishables to grab and go. It is sprayed in its entirety with Line-x coating.


Here are some more pics of it as it progressed.

Pictures right after the Canvas was installed.

Before canvas, but with tent deployed.

Before Canvas, tent stowed.

Trailer pretty much as close as it is today, but before My excursion had the Aluminess Bumper.

Tow Vehicle by itself as it is today.

How much was that bumper? And was it all outfitted like that when you bought it?


The bumper only was about 2100. The boxes are 600 each. Typically, folks put a spare tire on one side but I am going to put the spare on the front bumper when I get it beginning of the year.

Drove it like I stole it then refueled it. Richmond & back (about 100 miles) averaging 24mpg at 10 over the limit.

I heard that. I've had to spend half my emergency fund since the beginning of this month. :(
