Attaching image, not sure what is up, there is usually no issue with hosting from Google Photos.

Currently with wires hanging down everywhere, final stretch before the weekend.

I see it now. Thanks.
Painted up nice. Real nice. Those are just a better quality trailer than most. Maybe next time for me.

So can I!

What a gorgeous and well-built trailer to begin with. Looking forward to seeing more pics!

As I said I could probably have skipped the primer and put the garage paint directly on. The color (Pebble Path) works really well with the white and silver.

The quality is definitely there (so is the price - you get what you pay for).

The only thing I could say is that the finishing (nothing related to the actual trailer and exterior) is not to the same level. I would suggest finishing it oneself, ordering with the windows and roof vent and doing the electrical and walls yourself. I have a tight timeline and elected to take some shortcuts.

That being said, I do not regret my purchase one bit.

First weekend report:

I finished running the wires but ran out of time to connect everything to the distribution block. First and second night, I ran a single circuit with a 12v PSU (mostly the fan) but by the third night all was hooked up and it was glorious!

Next step is to get the e-track loft bed built/installed, even with the inflatable queen widthwise, the cot was too long and taking un-necessary space.

Also gotta streamline the setup/teardown routine. Luckily with the double axle and rear stab-jack, the trailer is pretty stable.

No more progress for a few weeks as vacation calls!

Enjoy your vacation!

BTW, when I looked previously at Neo trailers, there wasn't a dealer in Texas. Now there is one in Fort Worth about 15 miles from me. They are also an ATC dealer. I need to go by and check them out.

If you can cross shop an ATC vs a Neo, I would totally do it.

After some few busy weeks, we finally installed the e-track.

Word of caution make sure the lenght of the self tapping screw is shorter than the thickness of the wall :frightened:

We got lucky this time but it must be barely touching the skin.

I need to get some 2x4 to put in the e-track beam socket (4x) also some plywood (2 sheets) for the sleeping surface. I need to strike a balance between strength and weight of the plywood sheets as the set up needs to be fully removable to get the bikes in.

Which thickness should I go with?

I've been planning to build my bed the same way, but hoping to see someone else's first. I figured 1/2" would do the trick.

Going with 3/8 plywood, the largest span between the 2 x 4s is ~20", I did a quick test and that should support the weight.

I will also be securing it to the cross braces via t-nuts and hex screws, it will add some more time to setup but should tie everything nicely together. Been thinking about removable perpendicular braces to the cross braces, if I can find the hardware. I maybe also over-engineering.

Word of caution, measure each cross brace, the trailer tend to be slightly wider in the middle than at the ends, at least in my case.

Good evening, new to forum and prepping to build as soon as I get a trailer. I am considering the NAMR. How do you like it? Anything you dislike? Also, how are the white walls attached, screws? I will want to strip mine to insulate and that is one thing I was curious about. Best wishes on your build.

:( Not seeing the pictures again. I would love to see more details as I'm in the planning process myself. Nice looking trailer. I've looked at some locally here and they seem like nice trailers. The R&R I'm looking at has 22x30 windows, I'm going to see if they have larger ones available.
