The trailer looks great! How are you handling your power and water supply?

Thanks guys,
The there are two power systems. The tow system (lights and brakes) is powered by the jeep. The house system ( everything else) is powered by a pair of 12V deep cycle batteries. The two systems are for the most part isolated, but the onboard charger can take 12V from the jeep to charge the batts at a much slower rate than if it were connected to shore power.
The water system consists of a 25 gallon tank w/ 12V pump. It will also include a propane fired water heater (hopefully before it gets cold).

I suppose you will be camping in remote areas so there won't be an issue with storing your grey water?

Correct, no waste water tanks (black or grey)

Nice job. I like the tailgate set up.
I see the Rubi wheels with center caps. What did you do for hubs? I have not been able to find trailer hubs that fit inside the small diameter of the wheel.
