We feature a lot of high quality and sometimes pricey trailers on our site. Why? Because we believe that quality should be key on anything you rely on in the back-country. If you lack the fabrication skills or the time to invest into a big trailer project, purchasing one of the ready to roll models is probably your best option. If you like to get your hands dirty however, and you’re good with a welder, then a home build could be right up your alley. This month we’re taking a look at one of the coolest examples we’ve seen so far. It’s a 1966 Apache Raven Tent Trailer, and it started as this $400 box.
We’ve watched as this trailer quickly transformed from an ugly blue caboose to a tuned, and very cool, trail machine. Features include an A-arm suspension, spare tire and fuel can holders, overhead rack, and more. Check out the photos below and then head to the following link to read through the whole process.
