I-Ball

Expedition/Excursion/Overlanding RTT Trailer

Overview

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.'

We have outgrown the first trailer (not enough room for 2 adults, 2 kids, and dog, even for short trips) so a new build is in the works! Everything worked well on the first trailer with the exception of the heavy 4 person tent on the narrow track trailer – too tippy! New build (IBv2): M101A3 (I need to record the date, forgot it). Very clean and included stakes, sides, and cover (I will be selling that stuff and the HMMWV tires/wheels to help fund the build). Goals : New tongue / receiver...
