WE TOOK ON MAIDEN VOYAGE. Within 50 miles at 59 miles and hour the bolts sheared off. CHEAP CHINESE -NOT HARDENED BOLTS. WE WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE AND IT COST ME 550 TO GET TOWED -REPLACE BOTH TIRES AND RIMS AND 1 HUB. DO NOT BUY THE NORTHERN TOOL CART! I AM TAKEING THEM TO COURT. I SHOULD SHOW THE RIM -WOOF.

This is the finished product -we went to phoenix or semi finished. I still have to add a vent -I did add an inside cover to the lid. It was so warm inside we had to open the door and I added a desk to work from, we have a deluxe burgundy canopy with sides to match thanks to caravan canopy http://www.caravancanopies.com/ Thanks Bill !

We will add pictures of air and vent also see article on Northern tool on their base BE CAREFUL. IT IS DANGEROUS.

Time to Do some writing

I hate to type long dissertations so I will make this brief. I love what we built, but after awhile it does become a chore and more complicated than first thought of. First off :

I made everything 12 volt with solar ( I had the panels and controller) 200 watts and 10 amp. I made the back longer for this purpose and to put canoe on top. With the ability to plug in to 110 only and run off 30 amp converter and recharge dual batteries (which I had) and run the 12 volt stuff off 110. I also put in USB plugs to charge things in the kitchen and interior. The TV is 32 inches and we have 4 speaker stereo that works off USB and 64 ,memory cards.

I used cabinet grade wood (13.00 more for 3/4 and maple) but not for exterior.

I got my metal from endura steel in NW Az. Very Cheap and very reasonable- they even delivered to my house. my cost was 384. for everything side panels and diamond plate cut and 5x 10 top sheet.

I got 80 percent of my parts from Amazon because I was remote and it just arrived at my house – the rest was from home depot and Lowes.  I did score some things from ebay such as windows-don’t recommend because shipping was ridicules. Plus that commercial door looks great but suck- it hurts getting in and out of -stupid design. Make your own door -plus 300 is a waste of money.Plans-don’t wasted your money-if you cant make an insulated box don’t do this,

Plumbing made simple – I got a 20 pump at amazon and a 60 bronze faucet that looked cool with a bar sink that was deep.I hooked up a outside RV park hookup and had the sink run out with hookups to a hose. I used 5.00 clear 3/8 tubing so I can make sure everything was running right.

I think I got it right blog me or comment me and I will answer.

We also want bigger cabinets and a microwave and room for all of it.

ok to add some words of wisdom

Build a trailer for 2000 bucks Bullshit ! Maybe 4 and deluxe 5. I building deluxe model. In todays economy things are expensive. anything of quality for get it it. Get out the credit card. But here the thing when im done no payments. ITs Mine and will be for life. I will always have a backup home. And can travel on a whim.

I will get into different items as we go.

electrical- I made everything 12 volt. that way I can sit in a parking lot and be comfy or in the middle of the woods. I have 2 panels and a plug in 12 v converter to run stuff from AC. As well as an inverter for the reverse. Guess you can say I swing both ways. We are installing a new fangled Ac That is only 900 watts and below is the new genny we bought that is 2100 watts and very quiet -as quiet as Honda and has a DSC_0921

key start and remote start, 600$ and can run the whole unit, but I really don’t need it only for backup and can charge my batteries. I will carry 2 deep cycle batts in parallel. I also setup my plug to run off 110 not 220. I have 110 40 amp ,not that I will ever use it. But I designed it so I can plug in anywhere. my biggest hog is AC and Microwave. Even fridge is 12 volt. Tv is 10 watts. I even have plug in USB chargers in wall for charging phone-tables etc.

Why Spend Thousands-Build Your Own

I am an every day guy like most of you. I looked into trailers and found that with my Suzuki and my Nissen I could not haul very much. So I looked into MyPods, Little Buddies, Tag and other commercial trailers. Either they had too much or too little and Mostly TOO EXPENSIVE. 

I found some sites that were helpful. I found some sites confusing. So I decided to start this site to confuse you more – Na Just kidding. See there is no set plan in stone. You make it to your needs and wants. You have to ask yourself what do I need this trailer for , Am I going to fit in it and be comfortable. Will I feel like I’m In a rolling coffin  or can I stretch out. Most important is there room for love making in it ( hey I’m being candid here ). And will my car haul it- THE BIG QUESTION !

I had to do a lot of research and I hope to save you that time and grief by helping you with links and where to get what cheap. I am not selling anything here .Like you I have budgets and need to keep the cost down. I will give you costs throughout this site and give the best and easiest part names and where to get. I mostly use AMAZON because I am rural and I think of my parts in the AM an order them. I am terrible about going to Home Depot and Lowes and come out forgetting stuff.

You will need a cargo trailer – I will give you the best options in the blog Page and where to get. Tools -plans, videos and pictures will be offered here along with idea’s and new technology for your unit. And how to stop all your friends and family of driving you crazy on how you have to build it.

Some come join us here and register and be part of our big family and friends that all think alike, get tips on how to get things done , idea’s and fun sharing of your project and how it coming along.
