First off, i started by buying this 1969 tent trailer for $250. Canvas was in good shape so i figured what the hell.
It worked good but it was to low for me, so i lifted it and put it on 30" military tires. Then i painted it the same color as my offroad truck.
Then i decided to add some camo to it just for something different.
Now the floor needs replaced and i have decided to convert it to a hard top trailer. The canvas was just to long to put up so hard top i want.
I am going to keep the original sides and make a frame on the inside of them to make stronger and i have started the frame for the hard top that will attach on top of the original walls.
Floor to ceiling is 4' tall, since the trailer is 6'wide and 6.5' long i have decided the floor will be the bed like a teardrop idea and going across our feet i will put a bunk for my son (only 8 months at the moment).
So the construction of the top is 1x1 tube, it will be insulated and i have not decide what to put on the out side yet. I want 1/4" ply wood on the inside.
top is not done, just got the main frame done, now i can put some bracing in, then decide where i want the door.
Original trailer had a half door at the end, i want to put the door on the side.
found a guy local that has trailer windows, i am going to have a look at what he has this week end.
this will be kinda slow build, just doing a bit at a time over the winter.
here are picks from when i got it, to now.
