    Question to those running the same vehicle wheels on your trailer..

    I have matching Jeep Hard Rock rims and BF Goodrich MT tires on my Jeep and my trailer, including trailer spare, just because I want to. Why not?????

    trailer frame: what did you forget?

    One item that I wish that I had done differently is to have the tongue tube run from the front hitch, completely through the entire length of my trailer frame (like a spine) and then terminate at the rear of the trailer with a receiver hitch receptacle. In my mind, I would then have that main...

    M416 Build Up

    WOW, Nice job! There must be more than 1,000 M416 trailer build threads in here, yet you came up with an original solution that I don't remember seeing in here before. In the movie, "Find Forrester", Sean Connery says, "Well, you've taken something which was mine... ...and made it yours...

    Shower Thoughts.............?

    It's my understanding that some African tent safari camps use a shower tent and a bucket with a nozzle. One brand that I've found is the Tarpo Company. I do not have one, but have been thinking about building or buying something of the sort. Pretty old school and simple.

    Shower/privacy/potty tent solutions?

    I bought a really cool Oztrail green canvas shower bucket with brass rose at the Overland Expo a couple years ago and would like to get a bathroom tent that is designed to support this sort of device, but have not found one yet. Any suggestions for that type of bathroom tent? Obviously, there...

    DIY Expo Trailer Builders Q&A Thread

    I have one other thing I'd like to mention about the height of the sides and top of your trailer. I do not have an RTT on my trailer and I wanted to be able to see out my inside rear view mirror over the top of my trailer and I can. It's not any big deal and obviously I can also just use my...

    DIY Expo Trailer Builders Q&A Thread

    I used these same Jeep Rubicon - Hard Rock wheels on my home made trailer a couple years ago. After I bought my axle and mounted it and got ready to mount my new wheels, I discovered that the wheels have a very deep offset. I had to order aluminum spacers so that the wheels could bolt on to...

    Feedback on Trailer Propane Tank Sizing

    I have a 5 pound propane tank for my trailer and I mount it in a large fire extinguisher mounting bracket. It works fine for me. Also, the fire extinguisher bracket was fairly reasonably price, if I recall.

    My new candle lanterns

    I'm still loving mine! There was a really bad ice storm here at the ranch last week and the REA was out for a day and a half. I used my Bushlites that evening and was really impressed by how much light they provided. I also had fun using them in my tent at the Overland Expo this year. Last...
