    Well, I finally got a camera again. I don't have a ton to update, I've been busy with other stuff.

    Running light wiring is cleaned up and hooked back up from the nose to the mid markers. Bathroom walls are up and the bathroom door is hung.



    I got the front switches in.


    I picked up the house batteries on the way back from my last riding trip. They are 6 volt golf cart batteries that with wired in series to give 12volt and 186 Ah. I'm trying to come with with a sealed battery box to mount them under the bunk and vent out through a hose. It's looking like I will be making my own as I'm not finding any that will work for under $150. Together the are 11.5 tall, 14.25 wide, 10.25 deep and weigh 120 lbs.

    Dual 6v's are they way to go for extended use or heavy loads. I did the same thing in my truck camper, they seem to go forever compared to a regular marine or deep cycle battery.

    Thanks, If I could just find some time to work on it.

    I found a box that will work for the batteries, but two weeks and it's a no show and their website is currently down.

    Only thing new is the battery monitor.

    Nice job on your trailer. It's a lot of work, but enjoyable.

    I customized a trailer in similar fashion last year.

    Mine was only 7' wide x 7' tall x 16' long V-nose. I had the trailer built with (2) 5,200 pound axles, two layers of 3/4" plywood for the floor, spare tire/rim and I upgraded all tires to radials. I converted it into a toy hauler for my Wolverine, and to camp out of for hunting season. I insulated the walls/ceiling, added two windows, a latch lock, shore port for power, some 12 volt LED lights, wiring, exterior porch light, switches, deep cell battery, charging station for phones, shelves in the front and sides, (2) removable bunk beds in the rear, Yamaha 2000 watt generator, and a Mr. Buddy heater connected to a 20 pound propane tank (outside).

    16' is a little short. I would go at least 20' if I were to do it over. I'm not sure what you're pulling yours with, but mine is heavy and tall! Mine weighed 3,500 lbs empty before I converted it. So maybe it's 4,000 lbs empty now and around 6,500 lbs loaded for bear (or deer) LOL. One thing for sure...it sucks the fuel when towing it. Last years I tracked all my mileage and gas on a hunting trip to the western UP and back in November. I towed it with a 2017 RAM 2500 4x4 with a 6.4 HEMI and got just under 7.5 mpg for 1,400 miles!!! It's right at 9' tall and it really pushes a lot of wind. Your trailer is wider, and heavier...I can only imagine what mileage you will get!

    This year I bought a 2017 RAM 2500 4x4 crew cab, 8' long box, with the Cummins turbo diesel to pull it with. It has twice the torque, and gets substantially better mileage when empty.

    Mine is certainly "rougher" than yours. But here's a pic inside:

    I'll be pulling it withan 01 7.3l Powerstroke crewcab dually 4x4 with 4.10 gears. I'm thinking it will get 8-10 mpg. Unless you want run 55mph it always gets around 10. 4.10's and an old diesel don't really like 70 mph. The only thing that really changes it is my small trailer, 2300 lbs with the buggy, or no trailer. I dont think it knows the difference. Over the last 6 years it's averaged 9.27 mpg, and is used only to tow.

    10 mpg

    12 mpg

    9 mpg

    9 mpg

    9 mpg and a little over 32k gross

    JRAoffroad,

    NICE Tow Truck! A diesel is the only way to pull something that heavy. And an old pre-DEF diesel is even better.

    After last year's gas buying exercise I decided to up grade to this:

    It'll pull it much easier, longer wheel base, and better mileage too.
