Toy Hauler Build

I wanted to share some pics of my trailer build, it is not complete yet ( waiting for some warm weather to Complete). I could not fiend anything in my price range. I also wanted something that had lots of room.

More Pics

I didn't want to waste a lot of room so we put a toilet in the front and added a outside shower because most of what we do is ride ATV's on the weekends. Due to the cross member's i couldn't put the tank under the trailer so i decided to make a sub floor and put the tank in there. I drilled a hole in the floor to connect the hose for drain the tank.

Thanks for the photos. I see you are using full 2x4 for most of your framing. Have you spoke with anyone in the industry (RV) on why they don't use that? A couple reasons come to my mind. 1. Weight. 2. flex. Your trailer has flex built into it I'm fairly sure. Adding a lot of stiffness may affect other parts.

I don't know the answers but noticed when Spacecraft was building my cabinets it looked very flimsy. Not that everything is installed it is solid. No 2x4's in any of it.

I don't know about flex but the trailer is very sturdy because it is a heavy duty car trailer and has metal studs. I would think this kind of trailer would have much less flex than a regular Rv would have. As the weight goes I am only hauling a few ATVs so I am not even coming close to the weight rating of the trailer. I was more comfortable using 2x4 instead of 1x3 because I am a big guy. When I finish enclosing the toilet area I do plan on using either 1x3 or maybe even 1x1 because they will not be supporting weight.

Thumbs up

Looks great! I think most manufactuers use thinner wood to save wieght and money.
Good luck with it
