Currently tongue is just bolted in.


On my next build, I'm toying with a removable tongue. It would be impossible for a thief to tow.

:thinking:

Nicely done with the underfloor storage.

SoapCreek Adventure Trailer

Postby soapcreek » Mon May 28, 2018 10:27 pm

Framed out the back hatch and taillights between the activities of the day. Didn’t get around to skinning the front and top yet. Plan is to camp a couple times before deciding what we want for galley setup. Unfortunately I am not going to make my original goal date but should have it usable in another couple weeks. That is if I can quit thinking of things to add to the short list.

Finding it difficult to get out of vacation mode and get back to work on the trailer. I did finish the hatch door this evening. Started to round over the edges also.

Nice work! I've been impressed and following your build. Slowly trailing far behind through a similar build. :)

Thank you. I’m still hoping to have it to paint by the end of the month. One thing I wish I could do over is the outside skin. I should have moved the first piece higher on the front so it didn’t break on the curve. Currently sanding and applying a thin layer of filler to get a smooth curve. Ultimately it will get covered so I think it will be ok but if I had it to do over I would do it differently.
