Camping Trailer Build

Overview

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I'm starting an overland style camping trailer build. I know there's a tow and trailer forum, but that seems to be more geared towards car haulers and stuff meant for the road, so this seemed more appropriate since it's built for off-road use primarily.

This will be my 3rd trailer. I've learned a lot from the other two and I'm hoping this one will be everything I want it to be. The first trailer I built was designed to tow behind my old Blazer, it was big and heavy and not incredibly user friendly:

It had a 200qt Ice chest in the back, 4 Nato cans, a 29 gallon water tank and a faucet with pump.

The second trailer was more of a test bed for some ideas I had. It incorporated an old S-10 truck bed and a rooftop tent. It was much lighter, but top-heavy and it didn't have any cool features outside of the tent.

But a top heavy trailer with bald tires and off camber hills doesn't always work out.

I "finished" this build about a year and a half ago, but right now the rig is back in my garage getting some major upgrades. I never posted the original build here so I thought I'd post up everything I've done up to this point and what's going on now. First some background for those of you that don't know me or those that have met me at Blazer Bash but don't know my screen name (I don't post much here). My previous rig that is currently retired until I "finish" the Rock Limo is a highly...
