Haha. I'm not worried about a liger. Chupacabras are a bigger threat.

Trailer nearly complete. Fenders, tongue box, fridge and electrical all installed. All that's needed is tie downs and fuel can holders.

So far I have about 1000 miles on the trailer, both on and off road. I'm definitely happy with the prototype. Yep, we're gearing up to manufacture these trailers. We're also working on a new trailer coupler. More on that after some extensive testing.

I'm working on a prototype multi-axis coupler that I plan on selling. Need to get it completed and tested before I start showing it off. And working on a patent before someone snags the idea....so...no pics yet.

It was on purpose. I'm usually detailed in my posts. Once I get some testing done I'll share the photos of the coupler.

I went for a larger tongue box for extra storage of dirty gear for items such as fire wood, wheel chocks and chairs. This is also where the deep cycle battery and power systems are placed.




40 Liter Fridge/Freezer






I placed two power boxes. On on the left for a auxiliary plug for a light or charge phones, etc. 30 Amp fused link.




On the right is the power for the fridge.
