I like taking my grandchildren to Star Parties. A star Party is camping out with Telescopes. I have noticed allot of people (who can't afford or have the room for a RV) are buying enclosed trailers and kitting them out to haul there equipment and camp in. I have just purchased a new 14 x 7 enclosed trailer. My grandson and I have been working on it. We are stuck at the moment. I am looking for some ideas on how to do the inside. If you have photos or ideas, I would appreciates the input.

Kindest regards,

Ken

Glad to have you on this site. Since you will be etowing it, you want to build lite. Use 1 x 2 to frame ot any walls or cabinets. Check Camping World for appliances/

You probably won't care teo fit a black tank, so use a Porta-Potty. For a gray watet tank, Pipe your sink out to a Blue Tote tank which you can haul to the dump.

Ken, I got to thinking more about your project and there is so much involved if you allow it to. Try to keep thing very simple and has been mentioned lite. Also keep in mind you want about 60% of the weight in front of the axle. Design everything on paper, get the real demensions of actual fixtures from manufacturer websites or catalogs and you should be sucessful. Good luck and enjoy!

I got a buddy who made his own Harley Hauler.Bought some fold down bunks at an rv surplus and a starter kitchen cabinet set at Home depot.He had a seperating wall in the front for a porta potty.Very basic but functionable.He uses ice chest and bottled water.
