roam with a view first camping trip done

Postby jbyrd » Mon Aug 29, 2011 1:44 pm

Ok so i have alot done on my ttt but for entertainments sake i am going to post a little at a time as to not overwhelm everybody.
My plan was just a simple ttt but things have spiraled out of hand alil bit LOL (don't they all?? ) plans changed 100 times before even starting the ttt and have changed 4 times since the start. my plan was greatly inspired by the look of sunny16's trailer :thumbsup: but has since changed alot. was going to be a 4x8 but ended up with a 5x10 and so here is the story of that.

I didnt get a picture of the original trailer but just to let you know it was a really rusty green boat trailer i started with and after hours of grinding and sanding heres whats left.

I sprayed the whole trailer with two coats of rustoleum flat black, then two more coats of rubberized underbody spray. :ok:
until later, see ya

Thanks for the support, if you lived closer to me I could have you about 10 boat trailers to choose from all for around 100 bucks or so.

Thanks, yeah there coming I feel if I unload them all at you once then people lose interest (maybe just me dunno :thinking: ).

Ok so here are some more pics of my progress, started the floor with 2x4 construction and topped with 1/2" ply, I am concerned about the wieght but not tremendously as my tv for this trailer is a 4 door dodge dakota.

I used tsc fence and barn paint 2 coats, then a coat of rubberized underbody coating and the attached the floor to the frame with 12 5" carraige bolts.

Jeremy,

You don't waste anytime, do ya? It took me about 6 months to get to the stage where you are.

Your profile is really cool! I love the non-traditional builds. They have so much personality.

Keep the progress going and the pics coming.

Take care,
Tom

ok time for some more pics :D by the way my walls are being built out of 3/4 ply.

Also I have been struggling with a name but I was thinking about "room with a view" on account of all the windows I am using and the giant front window. What does everybody think? Seriously i need some feedback on this, Please.

I chose to go with cargo doors because they were big enough and cheap (50 bucks) for both with shipping.
