Hey Dennis, I've been rolling around under all sorts of trailers and 5ers looking at their slide outs and without a doubt there is 3X as much steel in your frame as in any of the production trailers I've seen. I think you got a killer deal on yours. I can't see the complete tongue in the pics but it looks like it is getting a 2 1/2" ball--is that right? Jack

Looking good.

Do the fenders stay that high above the tires?

Sweet! That thing is stout enough to go with lath and plaster and stucco and a real ceramic comode as well. I look forward to seeing your plans as they develop. Jack

Wow! That sure sits low for springs. Very nice profile!


I built a trailer a few years ago with the Torflex style axles. I like them quite a bit, but the motion seems to be different. They seem to work well though.
