Really cool setup, Maddad!

Finding the pics is easy if you know where to look. Click on his name on one of his posts, then click on "View Public Profile".... scroll down a bit and you'll see a section about Albums created. Click on that. Some good pics!

Im curious as to which is a wiser choice, building a small trailer "RV" or is it better to simply have something packed to the gills with supplies?

Thanks for these instructions -- when I get to 5 posts I will check out the photos. Also, just going by the text, it sounds like the trailer is a sweet conversion.

The trailer is great. Excellent storage and great camping and hunting trailer
designed it to be stealth. No exterior windows. No solar panels on roof. Future plans for solar panels that are portable. I still like to be stealth. My electrical source now is 2 deep cycle batteries....powering a small fan and 3 interior lights...2 cigarette lighter receptacles . My 120 volt AC power is provided by a Honeywell 2000 inverter generator. 120 volt is used for heat...Air conditioning. ..dorm size refrigerator. .aired microwave. ..All of which I can survive without.

Just curious if you have done anything else to it, have you been using it, how often, etc.

Couple times a year for hunting trips to the mountains
No new changes.
Perfect for me. Did you check out the pics?

Great trailer, simple but elegant! I like the idea of the rear wall to hide the AC and to create some storage.

One thought, have you considered that someone could easily lock you inside? I'd store an ax inside just in case. Most campers have a roof hatch large enough to escape through as a secondary means of egress.

One of the first things I did was buy a long padlock. One big enough to lock the cam lock bar so it can't be fastened while I am inside the trailer. When inside...I have a HD inside lock to secure from inside.

I m glad I did the rear wall like I did... Makes my trailer "stealth". I didn't have to cut any Windows or make any modifications to the exterior. When I park it...it looks like your average 6x12 enclosed cargo.
And yes the area comes in handy for storage. My 2 batteries, tools, jack stands, grease gun, full size shovel, double bit axe, wheel chocks, ext cords, and wall mounted charger fit well back there.

Any inside pics?
I have a similar cargo trailer. Been thinking about putting in a vent and such. I currently have a L shaped shelf, angle tapered on the front, and E-Track running down the sides that I can use for a bed platform.

Ah HA! I knew I was missing something! These are what I was looking for.
Now that is a sweet little rig. And thanks for the info on the Honeywell generator. I've wondered about those.
PS, is that a Corian counter top?
