What did you do to your trailer today.

It's already loaded down and packed to move. Overloads closer but not touching. I loaded 60/40.... No sway. My new pintle hook gets here today, I also have a offset pintle plate to raise it a bit. I'll set the raptor's king hydraulic bump stops to tow mode (still in baja mode now) and level it with the plate and it will be perfect. It felt pretty good as it was. Just add working brakes into the mix and it will be just fine at 55 mph for a 1,000-mile move.

Hey, just what we all need is a seat less no flush toilet that is mounted in the door way ready for a kitchen fire to fall over trying to get out of the trailer. The fire marshall would not approve, muchless the codes inspector.
But you have never gotten a whiff of my 7-11 burrito out gassing. You would climb over Mount Everest to get away from it!

On a side note you do remember that is just my storage trailer and it was easer to put it there for now out of my way.

Spent a couple of hours at the drawing board to design a folding bed. Came up with this after much thought and one finger operation.
Truth right now I do not need a working kitchen or bathroom. Small shovel makes at drop point for bottom end waist and all trees always needs watering. When it rains guess that's when I take a shower. As of now I do not want to have to carry my dirty water or potable water. It is storage for tools , parts, food and last emergency sleeping. I can run it on my small Honda 3k inverter generator for the AC or small plug in space heater and lights are all LED. Yea Razors "Taj" is something to behold with all the fine work. Who else would add crown and chair molding and you would think you were in a Victorian home. What can you say when you see it but wow.

Mold and mildew might be an issue.

There are some inflatable mattresses available now that are tough as nails and pretty awessome (easily stored). Just a thought.
Yea not worried about mold / mildew trailer stays plugged in and AC set on 78*. How bout a water bed nice for sleeping and I do not have to get out of bed to get a drink of water in the middle of the night.
Yes I do have for that real emergency when got to go NOW and even a cork stopper will not stop what is about too happen. Being the nice guy I am and the land fills do not need more plastic the old fall back dig a hole. Most of the rally's so far have had a good bathroom / shower.

I built a rack from super strut so I can carry my canoe, and to run a tarp set up off the back. I found these little auto LED lights at Home Depot and paint matched them and put them in the inside. They have a auto setting where they come on when motion is detected, but also have regular on and off. I also added power by wiring in a 100ah marine deep cycle battery and 750w inverter. I connected it to an external kill switch so I don’t have to climb inside the trailer to turn things on. Also ran a weatherproof outlet to the outside of the trailer as well. This will work well to have lights at camp and to be able to recharge stuff and power the things we need on a family camping trip.

That is very ingenious and very cool!

That material used to be called unistrut back in thew day (but then I'm an old man that's been out of circulation some):

- Are super strut and unistrut maybe just different names for the same proprietary product?

I am pretty sure its the same stuff. I actually bought the post bases and the heavy duty corner pieces from Unistrut, but the long sections were from Home Depot and branded as Superstrut.

After 19 years it was time for a new truck. With a new truck came a new color....White.
Everything I ownen is RED to match the old truck, EZ-up chairs, tents, ttrailer, kayaks, camping items, you name it.

I tore the tub off the frame and freshened it up.
The neighbors who watched me paint it red 10 years ago were not happy as I painted it in the front yard.23000313_184572305438138_5988161970184369805_o.jpgtr2.jpgwt6.jpgwt2.jpg
