Just replaced mine with a new set of the Rancho R9000's...just like me, cheap & easy.What Shocks is everyone using? I don't like the Napa 76839 that are currently on my Chaser, and trying to find a different part. What is the Rancho part number? Anything else worth getting?
Got a pic of the awning closed? I emailed AT to see if the awning mount can take the additional weight but didn’t get a response.Added in a rhino rack bat wing (new design of the fox wing)
I went with this one since it’s a bit lighter and I can zip the oztent Rv5 to it
And it has poles which can be staked down... seen too many of the pope less ones try to take flight, and if you can’t use it in a storm it’s kinda useless
It’s kinda huge
Looks nice. Would take probably take a few wks of winter if you’re going to bare metal and a whole rebuild. Drying time between coats of paint will increase in colder weather. Paint and primer and clear... rust remediation. Sounds like a fun project. I was thinking of how to convert this to a teardrop trailer myself...I have a 2008 Horizon that I set up for my Land Rover Discovery. It's a great rig that has taken my fiance and I on adventures all over the country. We love it!
I recently picked up a Gladiator as my daily, and have realized that I no longer have a need for my Discovery. I love it but if I let it go, I can justify trying out a BMW R1200GSA...I can live with that trade! Anyway, I was going to part with the trailer as well, but am rethinking that decision.
I'm toying with the idea of a tear down and refit of my 2008, and matching it to the Gladiator. There's a couple small spots of rust I'd like to address, and I have an Alucab Gen 3 tent I might put on in lieu of the massive Eezi-awn. I'm thinking of sand blasting the frame and boxes and doing a repaint. The electrical is fine, but I'd probably replace some of the 12v sockets as they are pretty worn and redo the lighting. New seals all around. For some sweat equity and a few thousand dollars, it would be like new again.
Has anyone done this? Thinking it could be a winter project for 2020/2021. How many hours do you think it would take to strip one of these down and rebuild?
