Dear all,

Thanks for contributing.

I found some images on the forum I presume to be Bogmonster’s trailer y’all are talking about – cool.

Mcd22 – what a great setup, definitely looks solid. Well done. I would have worried that the KM2’s would be too heavy, but then again the carcass is stiff relative to the weight of the boat that you could run low psi and the main contributing weight factor would be the wheels…

I’m aiming towards something along that line.

BTW, I like your Defender; hopefully the replacement will have that much character.

jyaski – interesting alternative to portal axles, I wasn’t thinking of removing the axel, but maybe I should give it more thought.

Feel free to contribute more pictures everybody – they fuel the mind.

Have a look at Expedition Portal's forum. There's a section for off road trailers. Many are home made and will certainly fuel some design ideas for you.
