    That is awesome! I might be too fat to sleep up in there though.

    SWEET! I think this trailer deserves its own thread! Let's see some close-up shots of the kitchen/sink area, the shower mount, the storage box, and the tent! What brand is the RTT? Looks *great*!

    Thanks!:) The RTT is from the car top tent company. Here are a couple more shots of the storage/kitchen box. Also the water tank and LP tanks. Got all my insperation from this thread and Drews great build and information he provided. Here is a list of the mods:
    26 gallon water tank that feeds the shower, sink and spicket on the front of the trailer powered by a flowjet pump.
    Deep cycle battery in action packer storage box with fuse panel. 2 15volt solar panels that lay on top of the storage box to help recharge the battery. 2 12 volt recepticles on each end of the trailer.
    On the kitchen box, I place the 2 burner stove on the folded down door for cooking. The sink drains to the ground and I place a hose to route the water under the trailer.
    I am using a 12 volt bunk warming pad to provide some extra warmth on the cold nights.
    The tent works great. The first trip I took it out on was to the Great Smokey Mountain Trail Ride and it poured down rain almost every night we were there. Never had any water in the tent. Also took it to the Cruiser Crawl last year and it rained a couple nights there and no leaks. I'll try and take a few more pics and post them up.

    That thing does need it's own thread...

    Can we get some more info on the water setup with detailed pics. It's very similar to what i was going for.

    Here are some additional pics of the water set up. I ran a hose from the tank to the shurflo pump. From the pump it goes to a T. One side goe to the spicket on the front of the trailer, the other goes to another T. One side of this T goes to the cold side of the sink and the other to a cut off switch before the water heater. It goes from the switch to the inlet of the water heater. From the outlet of the water heater it goes to a T with one side going to the hand held shower and the other to the hot side of the sink. The water heater works great but you have to make sure you have the dials set up for the pump flo and heat. Last time I had it out camping I had both dials on full. It would heat the water up for about 20 seconds and then shut of the gas. You could hear it shut of, so you just shut the water off at the shower head and waited a couple seconds and then turn it on again. After I got back home and had plenty of water to waste I got it dialed in so it runs perfect.

    When we took it for a 4 day 3 night camping trip, 2 people could take a shower each night and use the water to wash dishes etc. and we still had around 5 gallons of water left in the 26 gallon tank.
