Wow, that one door in the side makes the whole trailer look completely different. Bet you get excited every time you get one more thing done. Looking great Terry and Eleanor.. Have you picked out colors yet? For the inside and the outside? Cause you're getting closer!

Hi Lynne, We have picked a Harley color theme, the floor is an Armstrong Aspen Oak Black Vinyl interlocking plank floor,for the cabin area. the rest of the cabin area will be a light gray/dark gray and Harley orange highlights. We are trying to find the right graphics for the outside, I did make more work for myself, when I found the door it was trimmed in black and my windows are bare aluminum, sooo now I need to paint the windows. HH, I thought when I saw it it was a good deal, so I asked a friend that could order doors, and he said that it would be around 340.00, so 200.00 was a good deal, it was taller then my door so I had to reframe for it, took about an hr. I like the fact that it's got rounded corners, will match the windows.

Ok, HH you was asking about weights, the original trailer was 5680lbs, I will be hauling 2000lbs of motorcycles and gear,(that maybe a little high) for a total of 7680lbs. My axles are 3500lbs X 3 = 10,500 - 7680 = 2820lbs left for adding what I have put in now, which I don't believe I have added that much, maybe 1500lbs, which leaves me with a 1320lb surplus (if there is such a thing). What do you think? did I figure correct or have I left something out?

My issue was with like a class A or C. Manufacturer plate is posted allowable weights. Unless its someone authorized by law to upgrade doesn't matter what is done to allow for extra weight handling.

Minimum for overweight is a fine. Too much over weight & some states won't let you continue down the road.

But I'm not sure about 5ers & TT & some of it will be by state laws & regulations.

HH, I think the issue with weight is for a motorized vehicle with a data plate that states what the GVW is, I don't think I've ever seen a trailer with that info stamped on it, I could be wrong, I was once about.........LOL. If anyone has any other info they will say. Bap, I would take you up on that LOL. Painting aluminum and making it stick long term can be a pain, first you have to etch the surface then paint, oh well good winter project. Never heard of ale 8 so it must be a Ky thing.

I still have the custom trailer I had made for a Goldwing with sidecar. It has a weight sticker. Even the little 3X5 trailer kit I got from Harbor Freight came with a weight sticker.

Rained all day today, so spent the day in stores looking for parts, found all the bathroom, shower sink ect. HH, now I've been wrong twice, LOL. seriously, I have 6 trailers (everything fom car trailers to flatbeds, and now a 5th wheel TH) setting here in my yard and none have weight tags, If I want to raise the weight on a trailer, I go to DMV and tell them to raise it and thats it. I also found a solor powered fan that replaces the reefer vent cover. Bap, I found ale 8 on line, had to look. Next up I am putting diamond plate trim along the bottom edge, 4" up.

Difference in the state laws. When I lived a short time in SC small trailers didn't even require license plates.

HH, I can't say living in NYS is an advantage, high taxes, bad gun laws and all, but I have to say it sounds like the DMV laws are ok.
