Homemade enclosed trailer

I needed extra storage so I took a $100 5x8 utility frame and built a enclosed trailer. The original lights worked just needed a ground wire fixed. I just added reflective tape and she was ready to be registered.

Not pictured is indoor LED lights. I made a power box with two scooter batteries. I have a 22 volt solar panel and three smaller panels wired at 15 volts, trickle charging the batteries. I thought of wiring in some cigarette lighter outlets to power random things.

Ill put up the pics of the solar panesl and the ramp later.

The damage.
$100 for trailer frame.
$100 for wood.
$20 registration.
$10 for locks.
$20 for four solar panels,
$15 for vinyl decals.
$20 12 volt led lights for auto.
$20 bolts, nails, glue, screws.
$20 for paint.
2 free batteries rescued from the transfer station.

haha, that's a harbor freight trailer right? It looks pretty rickety and I wouldn't take it above 45 maybe, but if it works for you then awesome.

Agreed with the rest man. If it works then good for you but it looks like hell.

Looks like you would be crowded inside that, make it higher maybe? What ever floats your boat.
