My trailer fully loaded is only 1500lbs. The trailer battery will run everything in the trailer for about 3 days except for the a\c and the built in tv\dvd. The tv and a\c take 110v power. I have solar power to recharge battery.
Im planning on installing more solar panels, 2 more larger batteries, and a converter for the a\c and the tv!!!

^You've got a cool plan going! Keep us up-to-date on it.
Well my trailer is a new thing and so is having auxiliary power. It's about 1100#s. So far I'm pretty much using the battery to charge my MacBook, iPad, camera batteries, etc., with an inverter. I did buy a Lightforce handheld light that I hooked directly to the battery (so I can communicate with UFOs and hunt big foot ).
And since this is a picture thread I guess I should post another picture! This is in my trailer thread but it's recent. It's my tree house on wheels.
i got a trailer for free from my grandpa and haven't decided how im going to set it up just yet i like that its long enough to fit a dirtbike into it but i also would like to build a full camp trailer but not sure if i will shorten it to setup up for rock crawling. here it is i just cut off the fenders to try and mount my 35" tires but the hub is too large to fit my spacers on. does anyone have an idea of what to do other than trade for some correct size wheels? I know i also want to extend the tongue and put either a Lynnette eye or build a custom 3 axis pivot hitch. Ive got 2 storage boxes for free i can put on the tongue as well for storage then i can decide if i want to shorten the box. I was wondering if i can flip this axle to make a sort of portal axle it doesn't have a bend its strait all the way across. anyways heres some pictures of the project what im really wanting to know is the axle flip or spring over or new axle and what shoed i do with the hubs to get my spare 35's on there. It is constructed mostley of angle iron but i think its beefy enough to hold up to some basic camping loads. And id like to replace the wood siding with some metal siding and redo the floor, and make a new swing open tailgate.
