Have you been thinking about building a DIY camping trailer for your motorcycle?
This build story from the Tventuring.com forum will give you some good ideas. His build begins by using a budget friendly 40”x 48” Harbor Freight frame kit. Having a CNC router, he got fancy making the trailer box, although the design would be straightforward to do with a corner block building method.
His will be a Tent Topped motorcycle trailer using a roof top style tent unit from Top-Tent.com. The expected dry weight of his trailer will be 270-300 pounds.
For full details visit his build thread on our forum here.
I clean and repack trailer wheel bearings around every 10,000 miles or 2 years.
For info on checking, packing and torquing wheel bearings visit our Tventuring forum thread.
Don’t get caught on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere with a bearing problem.
The wait is over! We now have Roll Out Awnings in stock and available on our Top-Tent.com site!
Gave up waiting on my old supplier to restock and changed brands. Basically same awning as before with tan fabric and a $24.00 price reduction.
The Awnings have an integrated aluminum extrusion with full length tracks for flexible locating of the included L-brackets and easily attached to most styles of roof racks. The side poles and support legs are permanently attached; quickly folding into place making setup simple and trouble-free.
