    any hard tops out there?? :? im looking to put on a hardtop for security with either a spare tire mount or a full rack on top. i was thinking that the hardtop would be hinged from the front and open up to allow easier access to the front of the trailer, but then able to be dropped and locked so i wouldnt have to worry about my stuff walking away at rest stops or restaurants.

    You mean like this? The fiberglass sheet was originally destined to be a shower wall, but it reshaped around the framework easily. The skin could also be done in aluminum if you had it. Framework is 4 cutdown cornerpieces from a Duce with additional framing of 1 ½" lathers chanel. Hinges on the front are made from 1/8 pipe with removable pins so the whole top can be lifted off. A pair of washers are welded to the tailgate & topframe for pinning or locking.

    The top weighs about 70 pounds and can be lifted off by one person. The winch on the nose serves to lift the spare tire to the Aframe for storage, and assist in loading as well with the top off.
