This military surplus trailer wasn’t designed to be pulled by civilian vehicles, it was just way to tall for the customer’s van.
Out with the old axle
This axle is rated at 6,000 lbs “offroad”
We replaced it with a normal 7,000lb axle with electric brakes
Normal axle, normal tires, normal jack
We also welded on a an adjustable lunette eye on the front
Switched over to automotive 12 Volt wiring and lights
Ready to go.
Stage 2 was the rooftop tent, so a simple frame was made
The tent was bolted on
