    That's a pretty slick set up there, John. Did you customize it or buy it with the rear kitchen area already there? Maybe a bit tight in sleeping area? What does the solar panel power? More info please!

    Thank you, I built it from the ground up. The complete build details are here. http://www.earlycj5.net/forums/showthread.php?80343-Starting-a-new-camp-trailer

    Solar panel charges the 12v battery in the tongue box and runs the interior lights and roof vent fan. It produces up to 190 watts. I also have a truck fridge 12v/110v fridge/freezer that can be powered from outlets inside the trailer or the tow vehicle. Basically I can run any 12v appliance I decide I need.

    There is air conditioning in the trailer when I have shore power or genset. It is just too hot in the summer in Texas to camp without one.

    The sleeping area is 5 ft wide and 6.5 feet long. I am 5 ft 11 inches tall and it is big enough for me to stretch out in.

    You guy's all seem to have a lot of fun with your trailers, I seem to just use mine for practical duties.
    Sold the short one painted tan and had to use the one I got from Big Bear to transport a roll of film to San Diego.

    Yes, all the sides can be removed in about 5 minutes and the doors lift off leaving just the top.
    It's the prototype but I really like how it works. Much less noise and heat transfer from the top side. It weighs about 50 lbs. The next one will be lighter.

    It's not steel, its fiberglass, just primer grey right now. One person can lift it off and carry it. I slide it towards the back and tilt it down to the ground.
