We provide the base, then you make it great.  These plans are strong, so feel free to widen it a little or to add a little length.  Use these customizing rules as a guide.  The trailer design is tough to handle your adventures, so throw in your gear and go.

Depending on your needs, this size can be just right for packing a few extra things to make the trip a little more comfortable — and stylish.  Customize for the look like you want, while you customize the function for the gear you need.  This is the launch pad, so add box, a solar panel, a rack, a rooftop tent, or a topper.

  • Trailer bed size is 4′ 4″ wide by 6′ 3″. long so it will actually fit 4′ wide cargo.  (Not chincy on size like many competitors.)

  • While Trailer bed height as shown is 26.5″, actual height will depend on the options you choose.  Lift it to match your 4×4 tow vehicle if you want.  Also, bigger tires are an option — for looks and for function.
