I just want to say hello and thank you for this site. I used the generic Benroy plans to build myself a cargo trailer this weekend. I am very happy with the results thus far & it was a lot of fun.

You call it a cargo trailer.

What are your plans for it?

Well I actually only got part of Saturday & 10-5 on Sunday but things went well.
I make a couple of road trips a year to TEXAS and wanted a small aero "cool" trailer to put all the toys in. Now that I'm getting close to completion, I'm thinking about how I can make it modular for camping too.

I have thought of building a tear just to carry tools to the job site.

Even on a dull day I can come up with a wild design on that one.

:o Greg
That is fantastic given the time frame. Some advice, you will want a vent and a door up front will allow you to use it as a camper too. You would also be able to get to stuff hauled up there without digging through.

Thanks for the advice; I had planned to do both but I leave Thursday for TEXAS and had to get it to a useable point. I will continue to make refinements when I return in January.
