05/27... Still working on the welding of the upper frame. Have the water heater framework started, also the wiring compartment, another cross member, that will be X top and bottom once the water tanks arrive.
All welds are completed front, back and sides.
I reinterate, there is not an off road trailer on the market that is in the slightest competitive with this trailer, nothing stronger, anywhere, any time or any place. I have drug mine on trails the others would never even consider and beat the heck out of it. This is the production trailer and it is stronger than mine.
I made a change to the lower frame, in that I ran 3/4 inch angle iron along the base of the wall frame. The wall will drop into this rail and it will be filled with Pl4000, that will seal the bottom of the wood and make a strong enough bond that the whole trailer could be lifted by one side.
My goal is to build 9-10 a year, nothing more. That way I can keep the quality, the strength and improvements coming. I am showing a lot on this build, but most would never even attempt a job like this, so I have little worries of people copying me. Should begin on the wiring tomorrow if I finish up all the welding I can do today. - Bob
