Great work!!
Thank you. I am still working on the fenders, they are almost done. Also, I plan on dismantling everything to get it sand blasted, spray lined and painted.

Sweet trailer! I really like the drop down counter you built. It did not look like you have any type of seal on it? I could have missed it. Any trouble with dust getting in and all over the contents? I know out west here dust will get into everything unless sealed really well. Once again I really like it!

Outstanding build! I recently picked one up from a buddy and plan on using yours as template for my build. What length of battery life are you getting?

Thanks, I put some weather stripping around the perimeter of the shelving unit as well as the drawers. It is a really tight fit when closed, so nothing is getting into it when closed.

Thanks. The battery that I have has about 130 amp hours. I just went on a 4 day trip and I was running the stereo, lights, water pump, and dvd player for my kids through out each day and I never had to charge it. It really depends on what you are planning to use with the battery. Try to use as much efficient products as possible and just calculate the amp usage per product to get an idea of how long your battery will last.
