Hello from the Texas Panhandle everyone, I just bought a 5x8 cargo trailer, plan on making into a 3 person camper. Nice, comfy, and modern. Will double as a base camp for hunting season. Any suggestions are welcome, my entire build should weigh less than 2k lbs and will be pulled by my 2dr Jeep Wrangler.

Thought I'd give a lil' update. Removed all the interior walls, caulked and sealed all the interior, did some spray foam insulation in hard to insulate areas, painted the underside and caulked where metal and wood meet. Also installed my 30$ Amazon porthole window, removed all the manufacturer stickers/decals, and installed the door latch open eye bolt(so no one locks me in).

Did some work on the trailer today, built my generator/propane tank rack and attached it to the trailer. Then primed it, on to paint tomorrow. Also, built my brackets for the side mount battery box(on the paper on the floor)
Thanks for the welcome. I've been working a lot of hours this week and haven't got a chance to do much on the trailer. Ran the wiring in the walls and installed the flooring. Next is re-install the wood wall panels... Kinda dreading that. Also starting to think I should have posted this build to the Cargo Trailer Conversions part of the forum. Maybe site admin could help me out there?
