slider latch installed and it holds like a charm I can pull the trailer around with the rear slider and it doesnt move.

Ive had a bit more time to work on the trailer
led "bar light" pulls out over kitchen area for night cooking



closed in



front step and front door done.





top frame done


tailgate frame done needs latches also decided to mount the tire on the drivers side to help counter the kitchen weight



also for cargo retaining bars work amazing for anti shake bars and are super easy to use

latches in strikers are next



Spare tire mounted on the drivers fender cant be removed without opening the cargo area
double sleeve to stop water transfer as much as possible

Nice stuff there. What kind of total weight for the trailer, all loaded up, are you expecting?

Well its a slow go but heres one free sat worth of work
new wiring with 7 pin connector.... Free thanks to a buddy that works on big rigs


cooler access door


I was worried the jack may get beat up if I didn't move it off the trailer when off road so I decided this was a good place for it


finally secured the rear cargo tie downs


I got myself a Coleman expedition fold up kitchen but it wouldn't fit easy so I figured a way out. the top shelve has 6 3/4" height and the back is 18 1/2 so there should be plenty of storage. I will also have a top shelve that I can put longer items on that are less then 4" thick


Finally I figured a way to attache the diagonal supports to the feet while giving myself a bigger "footprint"


No matter how much I do it seems like this project is never going to be finished.
