Those things are the Swiss Army knife of camping trailers.

If I was going to have a trailer for the outback I'd want one of those. Very well designed

Well this will be one for the thread.

Picked up this trailer for next to nothing. She's not much to look at yet but she has solid bones and I couldn't buy the axles for what I'm into it for.

Planned Upgrades:

1) Raise the roof to the same height as the coach.
2) Complete reside to aluminum.
3) Paint to match the coach.
4) Add lift inside.
5) 3rd axle?
6) Build a trailer toad and get the weight of the coach chassis.

Like I said, "I can't Leave It Alone".
Well I've been AWOL from here for a while. Just got busy and got sick to where I didn't feel like doing anything.

This is a hard holiday for me for a lot of reasons, but I saw the conversation got revived and thought I'd give you an update on my steerable expedition grade trailer build.
It's been a slow build as I have learned to sleep in longer than I should. But I'm still working on it. About to start on the interior then the roof.

When done it will look like this.

Here's what I've got done so far.
Water pump, tankless hot water heater, solar panels, 12 volt freezer , sink and fancy faucet, plumbing is done, kitchen lighting installed, and a bunch of other small details complete. As soon as we get warm weather I'll be putting in the counter top.

Next is interior cabinets and toilet. Then the roof cap/ flip over sleeping platform and rear kitchen hatch.

Hope all non - servicable joints are glued well!

That looks like a very fun project resulting from what we can "thinkingineering" where idea pops in your head while doing something not related...great work!

I'm not a furniture builder so this one has been a good test of all the building tricks I learned way back when I used to build them for a major camper trailer manufacturer. All the joints are dadoed, gluesd and pocket screwed together. Found ma really nice 3M bonding glue that hardens like metal.
Then I'll be reinforcing all the panels and bonding them with fiberglass.

Basically building a lightweight wood skiff on wheels. Then I'll use an epoxy paint on the outside to give it rigidity
I have a friend who builds airplanes for a living and wooden boats for a hobby who is helping me with the construction.
All the major components are bought and paid for. Now it's just a matter if assembling it all together and finishing those million little details that will make it really unique.
Hoping to have it roadworthy by Spring.

Brother Curtis it is so good to hear from you again!!!

I was just asking after you in the Good Morning thread a few days ago. Glad this one pulled you out of the shadows. Sorry you have been having a rough go.

Nice work on the towable. Keep posting.

I finally got a coach and have finally been moving to OK. I need to go to Liberty TX soon, if you're up for it I'd love to stop by.

Something else thats been going on in your hiatus

Glad you're still alive and kicking brother.

Curtis, so glad to hear you have been busy, and hope you get back to 100%! The trailer looks very cool, and will be quite something when done! Keep posting the progress, and pic's please!
I found the MH i had been looking for also, Mona is her name, and you can see a few pic's in my signature! We would love to have you join us at the M&G next August! Take care, Rail!

Good to hear from you again Curtis. We're all just as crazy as ever and even have managed to snag a few stragglers to the group!

Wow Curtis!
With that kind of joinery and the coating you plan it should be a tank in disguise! It looks like you planned it out very well.(love the spare well)
Get your plane/boat building buddy on the forums , sounds like he would enjoy the gang.................
