I am building a trailer to pull behind the jeep for camping and going to my family's cabin. A friend of mine owns a metal fab. shop and he is helping with the project. We get together once a week and after work and it is starting to take shape. I figured maybe others might be interested in our ideas and you could watch the trailer take shape as we work on it.
The project started with the need for storage space to go on trips. I picked up a used tonneau cover from a Ford Ranger for the top of the trailer. I didn't realize that it was wider in the front than in the back and that was our first problem to work through.
Our current issue is finding rims. I would like steel rims from a jeep so I won't have to cary a spare tire. I haven't found any yet at the local salvage yards.
Also I think the sides are to high. We might have to cut an inch or two off. I think it looks to boxy, but that might change a little when we make the fenders. We are trying to match wrangler fenders as close as we can. We built the sides high because with the tires I have and 16 inch rims the trailer should be about the same height as the box on the jeep.
Well here are some pics so far. It looks rough, but give it a little time and she will take shape.
