24’ with 75 gallons of water and 50 fuel, doors on both sides (really like that feature) fold down couch / bed, workbench, cabinets, compressor, camp flood lights, basic Glamis set up.

Do you have interior pix? Always like to see how trailers are set up and get ideas.

Also are your water and fuel tanks mounted up underneath?

Dont really have any detail pics, just the one from the back. And yes the fuel and water are located underneath with a fill station on the port side. One thing I would do differently is put the fuel station on the camp side where I park the buggy, why they put them on the other side is odd. It has 12 volt lighting as well as plug in lighting that runs off a Honda 2000.

Brand name? A trailer like that would be perfect for a one or 2 nighter for now.

Universal Trailers in Riverside. And yea the fold down couch bed works great for snorers that get kicked out of the RV or a quick overnighter if its just me and I dont feel like bringing the RV. Having one with a shitter in it would be perfect.. We plug a little electric heater in and run the little Honda all night if someone sleeps in it. Works great for the 20 something sons who want to play beer pong in it all night anyway.

I really wish I had a side door (driver side) on my 24'. Its such a PIA to crawl over tires, and under shit to get your shit tied down properly.

Yeah it really comes in handy. You can go to the gas station fill the pump station tank and then open the door and fill the buggy fuel tank as well.

I was thinking about adding a fuel tank on the tongue of my trailer, I think it would be pretty spendy to go back in and add one under the floor and also finding the tank- I think the tanks (like the ones used on toy haulers) are like ~$2K. Anyone ever seen it done or know of a company that makes a tank that could be bolted to the tongue and is "DOT Safe"? I usually bring 5 x 5 gallon cans, thats getting old too, would be nice to have 1 tank to fill up.

KSH in Havasu makses them all the time, includes the transfer pump and the tank mounted inside one of their tongue storage boxes. They can make them off of a template you make of the tongue area from poster board.

Haha....I'm considering picking up one of these to haul my RZR behind a MoHo. I could also pull it with my 1/2 Ton to use it for overnighters to areas that are difficult to get a huge RV into like here in the SoCal Mountains. With all metal cabinets it looks like you can just hose it out after a night of drunken debauchery, lol. Nomad – Stealth Trailers

I am having one made for my trailer. 60 gallon for underneath. $800 for the tank. I found the pump, nozzle, hose and fittings all at Tractor supply for $300. A few more odds and ends and it will be complete.

Nice, who is making the tank? I just received a quote from the place in Havasu (KHS) and its like $600 for ~50 gallon and then another ~$330 for pump and hose. Sounds like its pretty comparable. Still not sure what I am going to do you, but these damn threads get me thinking...

A local fabricator close to me. He has done stuff for me in the past. Did some fabricating on a buggy I upgrade from VW to Honda power and made a heavy duty swing away tongue for my boat trailer.

I know everyone has good ideas and it keeps you thinking of ways to improve the usability of the trailer. Next I need to add some sort of water tank.

I think these are so cool. I want to build one I could fit the boat in. Then we could take on NorCal lakes!

I think I like them just for the custom aspect

This trailer works great for our dirt bikes. I can get 4 bikes in it. Like others have mentioned, I want to add a water tank for a pressure washer. Underneath would be preferable.

Let’s talk Etrak!!

Getting sick Of the floor D Rings and thinking about laying down some etrak. Would like to see everyone’s pix and some feedback.

I see Harbor Freight (I know) sells sections, is theirs any different than the stuff Amazon or ETrailer sells?

Appreciate any feedback.

Just had a D ring break this weekend gonna dive into the E track now for sure. Not sure if I should install the E track over my existing rubber floor or possibly thinking about ripping it out and installing some new LVT Flooring.

Oh shit thats No good. Let me know what you end up doing. I still have the wood floor. Did that rubber floor add a lot of weight to the trailer?

This thread couldnt have come at a better time. We are getting ready to switch our whole program up. Going to put our 5th wheel on the market after Memorial Day and moving on to a pusher.

In the market now for an enclosed we can fit our pre runner in and hopefully outfit it for a place for the kiddos to sleep and best case have their own bathroom/shit shack.

I picked up this TPD six weeks ago and promptly un fucked it. And added 16” to the tongue.
Holding and water tanks were ratchet strapped under the floor. Sold the refer for $300 and as a bonus the buyer took the shitter and the 28 year old propane tanks!

Our enclosed trailer is a 20' Carson Racer, when we purchased it, it had a front bathroom the took up the first 4' of the full width of the trailer

it also has an AC unit, 35 gallon water tank and water heater. I've slowly been remodeling, redesigned the bathroom to make better use of the space, it has a full size shower, a corner sink and self contained toilet, but I added a lot of storage for gear on the left side.

the couch and dinette will get recovered at some point.
I lifted it 2" just for increased ground clearance in the desert

Here’s mine. Picked it up for 8k I think. It was brand new.. I have been meaning to add exterior lights and a plug so I can trickle charge all the toys while parked at the house.

I also need to do interior lights as well as a 120V outlet. At some point I’d like to be able to hook a generator up to it to power everything. Hopefully this summer I’ll be able to spend some time decking it out.

I found a roll of the Grey Rubber Floor and it wasnt super expensive or heavy. Its been great and durable, I may keep it or swap it out when I do the Etrack, not sure yet.

Our enclosed has worked out perfect for the kids, didn't want them in and out of the motorhome all day, they hang out in the trailer, play games, watch movies, make a mess and its no big deal, just sweep it out and load the toys when its time to go.

WE do the same, let the rug rats hang out in there. I was thinking about adding a TV but figured we are camping they watch TV all week, they should be riding dirt bikes and playing in the dirt!

that is true, and I'm surprised at how little it does get used, but its there if it rains or is crazy cold and windy.
