That is awesome! I have been considering building one myself, thanks for the pictures. Great job!
As far as being rain proof, yes! Probably as well for pulling it through a river that's up to the fenders, I think it would be fine. The top is fairly heavy, so is the tailgate and they both have a 1" lip. I think I may add a thin rubber gasket on the bottom of the tailgate for added tightness, but once it warms up I'll take a pressure washer to it and see. Scott/Sunfire Off-road did a great job fitting everything together as it's all tight!nice looking trailer!! When is the first trip? Is it weather proof?
It's a standard 2" receiver hitch. I based this build off of the Pikes Peak trailer, which the guy that builds those thought that the standard 2" hitch was quieter for general towing. I'll tow mine to Colorado/out west which is about a 3k mile round trip. He also thought that it did fine for off-road towing and he's done some decent towing with his (see his videos here). I do have a cushioned long ball mount with a 4" drop to clear the spare tire (as I have an AtoZ rear bumper with a built in tow receiver).Uhhh, what type of hitch connection do you have???
LOL... Me or you being the old guy?! :cheers2::thumbsup: Very nice! Light enough that an old man can move around by his lonesome. I be lovin', it...
After watching that video my impression is we're both are getting a bit long in the tooth...LOL... Me or you being the old guy?! :cheers2:
