    Camping Trailer Frame Build

    Hi,

    I was going to build my camping trailer on a tube frame but saw some people using angle on utility trailers in this forum. My question is: I want to put the angle iron with the flat side up in order to place a sheet of plywood on the top of the frame and not down in the frame. How would I attach the A frame tongue to the bottom edge on the angle? There would be no surface to weld to just an edge. Hope I am making sense. I am thinking I would have to go to at least channel iron.

    popsmrf, welcome.
    and i agree 100% anything wood gets glue unless its intended as a friction hold point.

    just mostly lurk around here but had to say that is very kewl. i have always wanted to build one of these. how much do ya think ya got in it money wise? very nice wood work. nice to see another person that knows the power of wood glue. haven't tried the gorilla stuff yet. if i put anything together that involves wood it gets a dab of glue on it.

    sorry for not replying sooner

    the trailer is the base for a folding tent which opens up from the trailer. The trailer itself holds all the rest of the camping furniture and kitchen equipment. Most trailers are built from box or RHS as it is known down here. Just starting electrical work, like a caravan it will be powered.

    Thanks! I have a picture journal from start to finnish. I still need to do some paint in the galley and some trim on the two doors but it is pretty much done.

    Disclaimer:
    In case anyone was wondering... My trailer design is way out of scale regarding the steel and tires. I was just getting an idea of how to lay it out. Quick and Dirty.
