Well after 2 months the camp/fishing trailer is done. Minus new tires and wheels to match the Jeep.

I love seeing trailer projects!

How long is it from tongue to axle? How does it track? Weigh? Looks great!:thumb:

It's 12' 10" from hitch to tail, so about 8' 6" roughly from axle to hitch. Also the weight is not known yet. The scale house is further then i want to drive on the old rotted tires. It does track great, even on rutted dirt roads. I pull it with my 4 cyl and its almost like its not there. Once its loaded with all the gear it still should be fine.

Nice. So are you using the same wheel (4-4.5) etc, spacing on the trailer as your Jeep?

It turned out really nice. Great work!

Thank you for the kudos. I have to wait for a couple of months before I can afford the matching hubs, then i will be running the same wheels and backspacing.

I forgot to mention that I was able to get to the scale house and it weights only 400 lbs.

Nice job! 400# isn't bad at all!
