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.
