Can't say I have done much of anything with mine. Other things keep getting in the way. Not that I have a lot planned for the trailer. Bigger issue is planning for our first real trip in the trailer....

I have been buying a lot of the supplies for this project on Amazon. Even the tail light lenses. There is a reseller there that sells smaller lengths of Eternabond. I bought 2 10 foot lengths as I...

Yes, Eternabond. Old caulking removed, then a light sanding of the vinyl roof, then a wipe with denatured alcohol per the instructions. Stuck down great. Neat stuff, but spendy.

Trust me, they did not do a single thing with this trailer. They just dragged it around and used it. It was all original, even the tires.

Resealing the roof is very easy, and you will know it has...

That will do the trick. Any idea what company made the plastic bins? They look to be a very good fit.

Will post the weekends update a bit later.

Great to hear from some Bantam owners. :) Would love to see the drawer mod!

I got a little more done on Saturday. I added some wheels to the back of the frame so I could get the trailer up my rather steep driveway. I had to remove the rear leveling jacks,...
