Sure. I build the whole thing with stuff I had laying around. The kitchen was sourced from an old toolbox and stove, sink from a pop up. Heater was also from pop-up. The tool boxes on the side serve as a pantry and a closet. Everything has Led lights inside and 12v power outlets and lights in the tent for reading/watching dvd's etc. It has a 16 gal water tank with a flo jet pump and eco temp on demand hot water. I built the trailer from an old toyota truck bed. It has 3500# dexter axle with 5x5.5 bolt pattern to match my old jeeps spare tire. We have traveled with it quite a bit since I finished it 3 summers ago. It has been a lot of fun to build and use. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Here is what I started with.

Yeah I grew up backpacking and my wife grew up camping in an RV so we met somewhere in the middle. Its just enough roughing it for my taste and just enough glamping/comfort for her.

Thank you! I am cheap! hahaha sometimes it pays off. Even though it has a lot of used parts and isn't fancy, it is completely functional, durable, and unique!

Awesome build, I like how you used the trailer tongue jacks on the back to level it, nice work! Inspires me to want to finish my trailer.

Thanks rustED....... Campers/trailers are a ton of work, but totally worth it once finished!
