Welcome to the Enjoytime outdoors Camper Trailer Build Project!
One day this past summer, when planning a camping trip, I was struck by the thought of having a home-made utility trailer for hauling and storing our camping gear.
After several extended YouTube ‘research’ sessions, I stumbled upon several great purpose-built trailers, one of my favorite being Jeff Furr’s trailer build.
The basic objectives for this project were rather simple-
1.) Buy an affordable ‘donor’ trailer off Craigslist
3.) Build a custom body that didn’t look like every other aluminum utility trailer on the road
4.) Start by keeping in simple- with just the bare essentials, there would be time for enhancements, based on my first-hand feedback
5.) Complete the initial build within eight weeks (to be ready for a pre-planned camping trip)
6.) Complete the initial build for under $1,000- trailer, materials, registration and license plates, etc.
With these simple goals in line- I was off and running!
Please follow along to see how we went from this beat to hell donor trailer to our tricked out road-worthy, one-of-a kind tent camping gear trailer!
