This is a Compact Jr. trailer that I was totally rebuilding to allow off-road travel just about anywhere, and be equipped for fully independent boondocking
for a month at a time. You can read more about what I was planning (and some more pictures) at Super Solar Compact Jr.
I stripped the entire fiberglass body and filled in all holes and openings (black plastic and blue tape to protect the bare epoxy until painting) and repair the minor damage. I reinforced the fiberglass from behind. I removed the fiberglass wheel wells and fiberglassed in the holes. I then had a custom frame built of 2x4 steel and a 3.5 ton axle
. At this point, it's a perfect blank canvas for building the interior for your exact needs.
The frame is designed to carry two 100 gallon tanks under the trailer (one fresh water, one gray water.) The rack that you see on the trailer was designed to carry eight 200 watt solar
panels on automatically tilting mount that tracks the sun. That amount of solar power
is enough to allow an air conditioner to be powered via batteries. I also have all the materials for building a permanent solid roof for the trailer, replacing the current pop-up roof. The trailer was meant to be bulletproof in every way I could make it. It's built like a tank.
I have over $10,000 in this trailer already, but my plans have changed over the 4 years I've been working on it. I'm asking $2500, and that includes several parts I purchased for the trailer but have not installed yet, including all LED marker and break lights
, new custom build door frame molding, and custom door drip edge. I'll include the fiberglass materials and epoxy needed to build the permanent solid roof for a very good discount, assuming you don't like the original pop-up style it has already. If you don't plan on adding the solar
panels I designed into the trailer, you can have a welder cut off the rack for about $60. I really want to see someone finish this project, as it would be one-of -a-kind.
