5x10 Family Benroy on NT 5x8 Trailer (2 Adults/2 Children)

Postby REIGNSS » Thu Jul 27, 2017 1:02 pm

Based on some recommendations I've morphed my 5x9 "teardrop" style into a 5x10 Benroy style trailer which I think will be better suited to our planned usage.

Original Design: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=68959

My 2 main concerns are the "overhang" on the 5x8 frame, and whether or not the axle will need to be repositioned to balance the weight with the galley hanging out so far off the rear (typically use a Yeti 50 loaded with food).

This design does give us a lot more usable storage, but I do have a minor concern about the battery location inside the trailer?

The wife likes the "woody" look so a majority of the sheet goods will be 5x5 baltic birch, which allowed me to push up the roof-line for more headspace.

I also plan to use an ikea slat base for the kids bunk and making the side rails removable by placing them in U channels mounted to the wall/framing vs permanently with screws. I like that this design still has a usable 18" counter even with the bed in place vs the original design that would require the frame to flip up out of the way to use the galley.

It all looks good on paper, but I've never actually built one so I am open to any suggestions especially regarding framing/placement/sizing.

I've attached photos (next post) to give a broad idea of the design.

The model is attached below for those who want to deep dive into the trailers layout (lots of layers to dissect).
