Then a better mattress, sheets, pillows, curtains, and bedspread....you know....someone might want to look in it at the campground.

Throw away those cheap taillights and get those good led ones too. Running conduit under the trailer to put all the wire in to protect them from brush and sticks and stuff when we go off road camping. Upgrade the battery to an Optima gel cell too. Buy a trickle charger/maintainer for the battery. Buy that aluminum tool box for the tongue to put it all in. Make up a heavy cord to power the AC stuff and add a through the wall plug. Drink holders, dehumidifiers, mirrors and hooks.

All that being said and $5000 later I am still thinking of things I would like to do to the Wee-Go at some point in time to make it better....LOL. It's an addiction that just keeps on costing, but I enjoy the work on it and we enjoy the using of it and that in the end is what really dictates what is the right amount to spend on your trailer. IMHO

Hi Bill
Did you say you have a Wee-Go trailer? Out of Bracebridge? Possibly looking at one. Curious about quality of build? Bob & Marie, Ontario

Never heard of them. I built my trailer and named it Wee-Go. As far as I knew there are no others with that name.

Hi again,
Sorry , there is a company in Ontario Canada that builds a style of teardrop trailer, somewhat like the the Micro Lite Twist TR7, but larger, called the WeeGo camper trailer, which I am possibly interested in. Sorry, I saw the name and was hoping it was the same brand, not name. Sorry for the error.
Thanks anyway. Good luck on your build! Bob

No problem. I looked them up and really couldn't find anything. Their website is pretty empty and their Facebook is just as empty. I think they must just be getting started or something. I designed and built my trailer a year ago and it doesn't look anything like the one they show on FB. One post only and no phone numbers, just email. Doesn't sound like a full fledged company to me. I would be a little hesitant to spend money with them myself. Just saying.
Naw Bro, We ain't lost. We just ain't never been here before!

Thanks, going to see his trailers in a couple weeks, about 300 kilometres away, but now maybe considering talking to a local cargo trailer builder who says he can custom build! Will see! Thanks for the info and advise!
