What are the loops for? (The ones that look like safety chain loops but in other places.)
Thanks for the photos
Raya, The original support under the doorway was two stubs of angle iron. Each one was a different size, like they just used scraps. The new support is 1 1/4" angle iron from old bed frame rails.
The old floor was really rotted and felt like you would fall
through, so I decided to add the additional supports at the doorway and on both sides of the walking area down the center of the trailer.
The "loops" are made from half links of 3/8" chain, there are 4 on each side and 2 in front and 2 in back. I put them on for 2 reasons.
1) So there would be good places to tie down a tarp if I want to cover it for the winter.
2) If I want to lock the trailer, either at home or when camping, I can use a padlock and a loop of chain or cable through the wheels or to a tree and connect it to those locations.
