6x12 CTC log cabin.

Converting Cargo Trailers into TTTs

6x12 CTC log cabin.

Postby Wolfscout » Thu Jun 30, 2011 10:13 am

A couple weeks ago, I purchased a used Trailer.
The couple who owned it used it for hauling a motor cycle and camping but they never really did anything to it.

laid a mattress on the floor, added a side window.

So, I'm going to move along a few steps. I have begun putting insulation on the roof.
I've put a deck on the tongue that will hold my batteries and propane tank.
Image

I got lot of plans and ideas coming.. will post more soon.

You've got lots of possibilities there! Nothing like a clean canvas to create art on.

True pete. The wife actually found this CT for sale and had a fit over it.
We had been talking of getting one and not tent camping anymore. (we had gotten flooded out of our last camping trip.)
She liked the "log cabin paint job". it's very rustic as are we. So it's a good fit.
And yes, taking that idea and going forward with it in some areas.

got some stain this AM and stained that deck.

Looks like two batteries and a propane tank will fit nicely enough.

Hee hee, that is just great! I really like the Accessories 'Deck' up front; nice thinking out of the Box. Tongues, as on my TT, can look kinda 'clunky'. They need 'something', and I think you nailed it.

Now, you need only a gal around with the prerequisite Ellie May Clampett/Daisy Duke outfit on, and some appropriate Music going! Even w/o those 'fine' touches, your Rig will definitely initiate some fun conversation as you camp.

Yesterday evening I installed some 110 receptacles and a ceiling light with switch. Waiting on my 110V power inlet to shore power to come in.

Today I obtained the second battery and box for the deck.

Then I installed the rubber sectional mats over the while trailer.
We Built a really strong bed frame this AM and stained it Redwood.

Coming projects are to finish installing three patio lights, and a couple strategically placed 12v power outlets.

I wanted the bed frame strong for when I stand up the mattress on the side I can stack lot of heavy totes on the 3/4 plywood sheeting.
I'll probably be replacing the block with some 4x4 legs bolted on soon. The blocks take up too much room beneath the bed for storage.

The metal chimney on the house in the rear almost looks like you also have a wood stove inside the trailer.

:D :)
