    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    I ordered a 270 awning with all walls from Overland Vehicle Systems in early March to put in my trailer before our big road to Montana, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico. At the time of ordering they told me that I'd have it in early May, but it ended up showing up 2 days after we left for our...

    M116A2 that can grill a cow... Build !!

    Thanks for the feedback! I've seen those but wasn't sure how well they worked, especially since my tanks are laying flat (only about 8 inches difference from empty to full). I was thinking sight glad might be best but would rather not penetrate the tank again.

    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    Picked up a shower enclosure to add to the trailer before our big trip. I didn't want the enclosure to open under my tent and in front of a door so I built a telescoping mount that allows it to push out in front of the tent and in the perfect position for the shower connection.

    M116A2 that can grill a cow... Build !!

    Nice build! How do you like that water tank monitor, does it work well? I need to come up with something for my build, never know how much water I have left as is currently.

    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    Finally got around to installing and wiring in external USB and Andersonb electrical ports. Anderson is located directly below the hinge of my tent so that I can plug in my tent fan and Hard Korr 39" light that stays in the tent. USB is located on the oppositeb side for charging electronics...

    Guy only charged me 200 to sand blast it. It was dry sand blast.

    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    Tough question, if I built another one I'd probably build it from scratch at this point but when I first started I was looking to build as cheap as possible and thought I'd be able to use the axle and a few of the existing pieces. I had someone else sand blast it for me, it was an absolute...

    New 270 Awning available.

    Get what hints? I don't care what you ordered 6 months out if you knew it was going to take that long then that's fine. They told me I'd have it the first of May when I ordered. Now they are saying it's going to be 6 weeks min later than that. If getting the hints means being happy and...

    New 270 Awning available.

    I ordered the OVS Nomadic 270 and walls for the trailer I built on March 23rd but they are telling me that it is going to be mid June before I get it... Not real happy about that because I have a huge trip planned for the end of June and when I ordered it, they told me it would be ready the...

    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    Appreciate it 228B! It has been a fun project for sure, and love the way it's performed on the three trips we've taken it on so far (has about 2,700 miles under it's belt so far). I need to post more updated pics

    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    That's why I used the rod ends they rotate in any direction. I can have all 4 posts at different heights if I need to quickly level the tent. I usually level the whole trailer though because if I don't the stove and sink won't be level when they pull out.

    Off-Road Trailer Build - Pump Trailer Transformation

    I considered actuators, but when I drew up plans I placed them in the middle of the rack to try to keep pressure even in all posts. I think if you only go with two in the corners you would run into binding issues. I ended up going with the gas struts because I wanted a cleaner look, the...

    Are you trying to lift the whole tent rack or just the awning?
