    There are a lot of times when I wish I wasn't a moron. This is just another.

    How I'd love to have the skills and know-how to build something like that.

    Nice work Brosef.

    Gonna finally be starting on a lid for the trailer soon. I think I'll also be respraying the fenders with bedliner. The paint on the front of the fenders has been getting beat up from rocks being kicked up from the truck.

    When I built the trailer I didn't have my Tacoma yet so it was designed around towing it with my 80 series Land Cruiser. There's some wiggle room on the ideal track width, but generally its nice to have a track width slightly wider than that of the tow rig. On the flip side if you can keep the track width close to the same then the trailer will be better at following in the same tracks as the tow rig which can be extremely helpful on tight or technical trails.

    So I decided on 64" WMS to WMS. That is .5" wider than the 63.5" track width of my Land Cruiser. It works great with the Cruiser and even though it's a little wider than the Tacoma is has been pretty successful there too.

    I don't know the track width of your truck (2010 right?) but I would guess it's pretty close to that.

    The one in the pictures is a first gen Mombasa. It's an entry level tent but has worked well when I've used it. I'm trying to save for an Eezi-Awn or Maggiolina.

    Along with your truck this looks like another top notch build. The fact that you did it yourself and saved a huge amount of cash is just icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing the build.

    Damn I need to learn how to weld. That trailer came out awesome man. Only think I would've done differently would have been to make my own fenders out of diamond plate (so what if I have almost 150sq. ft. of it in my garage) because I like that look more but I still admire what you did with it.

    I might be building new fenders sometime this summer. The current ones on it work fine, but I may be adding some side boxes that will work better with square top fenders.
