The building of the Haul Trailer

I built this a while ago, but I added to it today, so that the post would make sense I thought I would bring you up to speed on the whole project!

Building my haul trailer. I haul a lot for several reasons... mostly
because I like to have two different bikes everywhere I ride.

I acquired this treasure at an auction for the assets of the company that did not pay me for the last 7 weeks I worked there. I had the axles completely rebuilt and new brakes put on it prior to the company's bankruptcy by its owners. So I knew it was old, but I knew it was pretty
**** solid.

These are the before pictures.









So I stripped the inside and sanded the outside, ground out any rust spots I found and filled some holes up. Put on two coats of Omni Epoxy paint in the form of flat white primer. I insulated the walls and finished them in paneling. Then finished the ceiling with a white finish board.

Added in a roof vent. A 2000 watt inverter, a small pancake air compressor. A 3500 pound winch, a folding aluminum ramp, flood lights all the way around it. Deep cycle battery, a charger for the battery. LED lighting inside. Then I rhino lined the floor and the stone heights of the outside of the trailer.

Finally a friend of mine wanted in on the action so he airbrushed a little art onto it.

I have had the trailer for almost four years now, I decided to add a few items to it.

We set the trailer up a lot as a base camp for riding different areas of the country. Plus since I have the air bed in it we can also sleep in it if rooms are at a premium.

Was cruising craigslist and saw an 8 foot awning for sale cheap. Went and looked and added it to the trailer.

Came out pretty slick.









All put away!

I keep various essentials in the trailer.



I don't keep the wife locked up in the trailer, but we do eat lunch while traveling to a location in it a lot or while using it as a base camp for a location.



















Anyway we like it and it offers us the ability to see all parts of North America.



I would like to thank my sponsor... my welder!!!

Cool man! Nice Harleys and nicely built interiors all good with Barbecue and Bourbon. But what I find particularly interesting is the 'Dodge'. Those Hemis and a whole new discussion can start. I am fascinated by Dodge Brand. Wish they introduce in India. I can still see some vintage Dodge trucks plying on road when a trip is planned to Golden Temple, Amritsar, India; but they are rare.

Had a challenger as a kid. Dodge did the best job in bring a modern version to the market. Plus the power in the hemi is just great.

But it is actually my wife's car.

However I have my eye on one that I want.

Love the trailer ! You know how to travel in style ! Seriously tho, there's been a couple times I could have used a winch and an air compressor.

Nice car too.
