Re: Interesting trailer?

The mesh holding up the canvas is genius. I would choose a different base though- 1-ton military can't ride or tow very well and there is no way the build is heavy enough to justify it.

Agreed. I do like the direction he was going. The top is nice but way overkill. Why mesh? If solid he could of gotten rid of the cover.

Re: Interesting trailer?

This trailer was either discussed or For Sale on Expo a while back.

I agree that the mesh would be great for bear country, except that a bear is smart enough to figure out that the end of the trailer isn't covered in the mesh. Interesting build though.
