First Overland trailer build

Oct 18, 2007
Watkinsville, GA
This started out as a boat trailer. I didn't have a good idea on what exact ally I wanted to end up with. Here's is a partial list of what I didn't do correctly:
1) the box is too small, it's about 3.5 feet wide and a little under 5 feet long.
2) the angle's aren't square
3) the fenders are level as long as the trailer isn't (especially the passenger side)

Here's a list of what I did correctly (I think.)
1) The tires/wheels match the ones on my 60.
2) The tongue is almost the correct length.

I've pulled this on various overlanding trips included most of the GA Traverse.
The basket up front can hold a 5 lb propane bottle and a couple of 5 gal gas cans.
The basket up top can carry a full size spare tire an a couple of "totes". I have a spare on my 60's rear bumper so I probably won't carry another spare. (I put it up there to provide a visual clue.)

Here's some photos.
