Nice trailer. 6ft wide?


I just picked up a 7x14 force elite by R&R in June custom built with some extra options. I added height, extended the tongue, added LED reverse lights, swapped the thin white wall board for 3/8 plywood, and put a man door on the street side. One thing I wish I would of done is changed the man door to an RV style door with a window.

pics here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmoAThbB

After watching the sled build I can't wait to see the trailer mods :)

Looks just like the other trailer I have here for 2 sleds. All aluminum but rarely use it. Big and wind resistance.

It's all relative to your experiences. I am used to towing a 28ft TT 8 months of the year so it's little with less wind resistance to me
:D

Took the window frame off to check walls thickness and wood thickness. Surprised walls are 3/8.

1" space in walls.

I was too late to add insulation to walls before they built it.

Things you dont think of till after.

So prob pull walls down to add insulation. I will prob do a better job doing it anyways

What is the plan with this trailer? Are you making it a little camper or something? I would love to have one that size.
Mainly sledding. But may use in summer once in a while for camping. Or if i get another KTM bike for summers

just something to think about, but I have had a bunch of trailers over the yrs and my current one 8.5 wide enclosed deal, and where I park most of the time, is a tuff deal at night, and always made me wonder why so many trailers NEVER have back up lights.

so this summer I decided to add some to my trailer, and MAN I am glad I did was real simple, LED off road lights off e bay very cheap, and a great mod to maybe think about!

I have also been wanting to add a back up camera/live feed while traveling too, but have not fond a model yet I care to gamble on, as every model of them(wireless one;'s) seem so hit and miss on reviews no matter the price tag
been hoping tech improves on them but so far seems to be a stand still in them!
and another project I been thinking about but haven't done yet, is figure out a way to add motion activated lights to the inside, this way I never ever forget to shut them off, and well, they come on as soon as I drive in!
I'll throw this one out there since I know your pretty good at modifying things, LOL
