Excellent work there Brad! The new updated frame was a smart move allowing you many more options such as your awning mount & cargo area. Love it! Enjoy the fruits of your labor now!

Not sure what the weight of just the aluminum frame was, but I remember lifting the whole back end up off the ground with tires and wheels on it so it couldn't have weighed much.

I drove it across the scale at the landfill on the way home and the dry weight of the trailer was 1580 lbs with both propane tanks filled up.

Absolutely incredible. This is one of my favorite renovations so far.
You saved an old trailer and made it a masterpiece.

As for a portable toilet there is no better option than the Thetford Curve.
I ditched the original 10 gallon porcelain marine toilet in my Scamp 16 for the Curve and I couldn't be happier. Saves water, allows me to carry an extra 2.5 Gallons since it has it's own fresh tank, I can empty it anywhere for free, and it's comfy!
Better yet the space saved allowed me to build a bathtub where the old toilet was. I simply remove the toilet from the tub when I want to take a bath.

I think it would work nicely for you along with a small tent for it that you could set up under your awning.

Again, AMAZING renovation of that trailer. No criticism here!
It really looks like a brand new factory job on a modern (and expensive) trailer. Impressive.

Thanks for all the great feedback guys. It means a lot to have it coming from experienced people like you that have probably seen a lot of these kinds of reno's before.

Wow- what a great job. The exterior reminds me of those bug out back country trailers you see featured on sights like Gizmag. The aluminum frame is the perfect solution for longevity. That little egg is a real head turner !
