Great looking trailer! Do you have more pics of the build? I love seeing the intricacies of something going together.

edit: nevermind, I thought your trailer looked familiar. I watched it go together in the Fab section when I was in Afghanistan. Congrats Dave. Good luck with the business!

Thank you Sir.

It sounds like you are back from AF. IF so - glad to hear it. If not, safe travels.

My plan is to post as many pics as possible during builds. I will be posting them on our site as well as here. I, as you, enjoy seeing it come together.

Merry Xmas to you.
Dave.

Axe - that is something we have thought about doing and could do to power a 12v system. The rub is that folks tend to use the lid as a place to store extra items, like a large cooler, etc. If a client had not intent of using it to carry anything, a 12v solar system would be very interesting to design and implement. We have built other trailers that have onboard 12v systems that run off marine batteries but it would be nice to have it constantly charging via sunlight.

The lid on the JT-1 can be removed in under 5 minutes. First disconnect the 2 lift assist cylinders and then pop out the 4 hinge pins. It can be done by one person but two people make it easier.

The lid goes back on in reverse order. These pics are from our very worn and dirty original prototype.

Hi Dave,

I'm just down the road from you in NM. Have you thought about doing a fold down tailgate. This would allow use of the trailer to haul over length items like plywood, lumber etc. I've been looking for something to use as a utility trailer and to haul camping/fishing gear.

Jello - first off, feel free to come by if you are ever near the Springs. Shoot us a note via the email on our website.

To answer your question, I am working on a design right now that incorporates a tailgate like you mention. I will post the sketches up here when I am done.

Dave.

Why make them outta nice wood? I guess thats the reason for the price being high as it is. I like the look of the fenders like an m416 had. The three piece fender. Very nice trailers though but couldnt see myself spending that much on a trailer when I could get a nice popup for that much.
