Adding some finishing touches, all that's left is the new wheels and fenders. Should be finished in time for our Yosemite trip. :D

So I have been working nonstop to get the trailer campable for our camping trip next weekend. The sleeping room for our infant son is temporary until he is old enough to only need a rail. I had to extend the jack handle to clear the new tongue box, that was actually pretty easy. Here are some pics of my progress:

What did your final weight end up being?

And where did you get your windows from?

Nice work on the build! :thumbsup:

Had a great time camping near Yosemite. Quite a few people stop by and look at the trailer and everyone seemed to like it.
My take:
Towed perfectly, even on the bumps I barely felt it.
Our son did as good as you might expect a 9 month old to do.
I loved how light weight it is, so much so that I decided to turn it by hand to face the river. My guess is 600-700 pounds dry.
Found a few things that I plan on changing, but otherwise she camped very well.
Can't wait to go camping again!

Getting ready for the Treasure Island trailer show with some new paint. Also installed some solar vents, can't wait to test them out.

I like the simplicity of your galley. The new paint should be cooler too.

I really like your Renegade build! The lightness of the design on a jet ski trailer must be nice, and it is both cool looking and functional. The new paint job looks sharp. Nice work!
