Cabinets

No more bunks, the key to this projects was to provide enough storage that the trailer would always be loaded and ready to go with everything needed to have an easy lay back getaway in the wilderness. The cabinet for the front of the trailer was an excellent project for my 4th year of carpentry. With an entire shop at my disposal i managed to build myself a rather nice (and heavy) cabinet. The other cabinets are all the original fiberglass, refaced with maple ply and checkerplate. All of the drawers and doors are attached by way of ball bearing easy glide sliders, and held in with roller catches. The stove and furnace are both originals. The furnace was repaired and both received a fresh coat of tremclad high heat. I put the stovetop on roller clips as opposed to bolting it back in place for easy removal and cleanup. New curtains, rods, and rod holders were installed as well as aluminum checkerplate kicks with removable cellulite foam flooring for easy cleaning.

I am enjoying this roll-out immensely...But I worry you've made it too nice to drag into the wilderness!

Oh yeah, incredible woodwork! You might win for maximum storage space in a 13' trailer.

Final product

Here are some finished pics of the outside. One other feature I didn't mention is that the spare tire carrier doubles as an 'ERP' (Emergency Recovery Point) from which the trailer can be towed backwards out of sticky situations. This project has definitely been the most challenging I have ever taken on, mainly due to the shape and lack of fasteners that can be used. If you need any more detailed information or pictures don't hesitate to ask as I have kept this post fairly basic. Hope to see y'all on the road some day!

I love the way you rebuilt your whole trailer in one day, and all before 1 pm! I have been planning a similar thread for my beachcomber build. I just need another month or so

Where about in B.C do you live?

Fantastic trailer re-build. Looks like it ended up working out great. I'm curious, on your drawers, did you leave the end grain exposed? On your cabinetts, it looks like you put on a piece of quarter round. Thanks for all the pictures.

I love that high-rider look!

What are those wheels anyway - 17 inches?

I edged all the ply with iron on edging you can purchase at your local windsor plywood. the kitchen has a piece of trim for a nosing on the countertop covering the end grain.
