Off Road Trailer stuff

OK Before I reinvent the wheel I figured I would ask here.

I am slowly getting my off road trailer project ready to move forward. I have all the big stuff Honda Generator, Refrigerator that runs on 12 volt, propane or 110, propane stove, RTT, awnings. What I need are:

-Heavy duty drawer slides

-lockable premade doors

-good LED task lights

-An easy way to lift the RTT and awnings to roof height for in camp set up

Any help would be great

Cheers
Eric

It is entirely custom under an 88" Series roof that tips up. It will have Defender hubs, wheels, and tires that match my 110. No pics yet

Eric, give Bob C. a call. He has incorporated all of those components into a trailer and bed based unit.

I never really made a build thread and have not solved all of your questions, but my trailer is made out of a stretch NAS D90 frame, defender rear axle, 109 tub, and the roof out of two series 88" roofs and I use an RTT. The top has a side hinge and gas springs/struts to support it. Works nicely. I still need to finish a few things and do slide out drawers and things so do share what you find. Ron mentions the twp best sites for info on trailers building in general.

Thanks Ron I will check over there too


Charles that is exactly how my top works. Mine is a single 88" top but it sits on a custom built trailer. I helped build this "gem" in 1994 when AB still had a restoration shop.
