Hi All,

I scratched an itch 4 years ago to build a small trailer used for camping. It was intended to be a 'quick and dirty' build using lots of salvaged and used parts. I however ended up 'investing' a little more than I thought in it but in hindsight am glad that I had. Since then I have been very happy with what I have created after spending over 100 nights in it and dragging it thousands (realistically 10s of thousands) of kilometres.

Its also been a constant project with small improvements being made yearly to help add to our camping enjoyment. While I constantly have upgrades I would like to do I am starting to feel the itch return as I have grand ideas for additional trailers.

Since I found lurking this forum so helpful when I was first building mine I decided to join and act as a resource for anyone who may have any questions or comments about the relatively unique way I did things. I'll post up more in a retroactive build thread.

Welcome to the forum.

Nice trailer, we are hoping to make it to BC next year, it's been on the bucket list for awhile now. I'm getting my teardrop close enough to use it. Can't say it's done because I don't think it will ever be done. :lol:
