    Default Offroad Trailer

    Decided to build an "expedition" trailer. All said and done, it will have solar, running water, slide out kitchen area, tent, awning, etc..

    That's great, Daniel! Exactly how we should all do it: build our own! Can't wait to see this finished. #loveit

    Got the upper rack built today and the cable run... I'll have a strut on each corner to push the rack up high enough for the awning to clear my head, and a small hand winch to raise lower it. [IMG]Untitled by Daniel Avis, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Friend of mine who owns Stout Tent is having two prototype roof top tents made, one for him and one for me.... I"m getting it at an incredibly discounted price in turn for letting him use my trailer for things like the Overland Expo and such.
