Looking good so far!
When you are ready to fine-tune your design you might find it helpful to break all of the parts into separate components. You can then lay them all out and get them ready for CNC milling!

I do the same as eLink. And even with out CNC, you can draw 4x8 plywood component and layout it out underneath the components on the ground. Makes it easy to plan material usage and cut order.

Took it to the scales today, 1600lbs on the trailer axle.
I still have quite a bit of the small details to finish with most of it being in the front.
The tongue weight percentage is currently at 17.5% and while that's close with everything remaining and the storage being in the front I feel it will push it closer to 20%.
On the scale the front axle was 2640 and the rear was 2920, they are both rated at 5500lbs. Without trailer the front was 2700 and rear was 2640. Total was 7160 and my JLU's GCWR is 8016.
