Dry rot could be a HUGE problem. Thanks for sharing Carl.

The first thing I thought was 'Viking ship, upside down'. It needs a dragon's head on the prow!

Some people get way to caught up in styling and profiling for burning man!

IMO beautiful little trailer. Living on the Oregon coast has taught me one thing about wood... we have boats still in use here in the fishing fleet that are easily as old as that trailer and they hold up in the wet just fine.

Now that you mention it, I totally agree.
Would be a great one piece upper and only
need a matching floor to put it on.

Custom paint would be a real biggy on this.
