Trailer

Benny can only haul 2000 pounds which means I can’t tow my truck. So I found an enclosed trailer on Craigslist. Its 6×10 and should be perfect for our traveling endeavors. I got it for pretty cheap, but its in need of a little work: a new vent hatch, new tire, new interior lights, anchoring points to strap stuff down, and most importantly, a motorcycle chock so I can bring my motorcycle with us. It has a ramp in the back, and a door on the side. I’m hoping I can get everything in there without exceeding the weight limit.

I’m bringing my motorcycle just in case we break down, and need to get to the nearest town, and just for fun. ;)

I started by putting the vent on today. I removed all the 2×4′s from the previous owner. Tomorrow¬† I am going to get started on putting the wheel chock in, and all the eye bolts for anchoring stuff down. I also found a 55 gallon drum today that I plan on mounting in the trailer, for storing additional veg oil for the RV.
