This trailer was largely built on impulse and 'lets try that' hence the name I-Ball (eyeball). Happy to say we had virtually no mistakes and I have not needed to change or modify anything. This one was truly 'built, not bought.'
Bantam Trailer as base (from M100 ¼ ton military trailer design, the Bantam/civilian model has the tailgate). This trailer will be ideal for a 2 person tent setup. The pics show the 4 person Tepui (~250lb load) which is not included. Approximately 2,000 miles since the build.
