Well more like whats left of it !
The story goes that a strong wind ripped the roof and tent off. The fella I bought it from took the the rest.. I got the body and some lights.
But I only want the frame. The frame is 8 ft long and 6 ft 3 ” wide. The hitch is another 46 “. Very light .. I towed it home like this about 80 kms. Those darn 8 inch wheels survived the trip.. I hate those.. They are not staying ! I’ll go with 12 ” better on the highway.
When I got home I noticed the back of the trailer was coming apart! Well I’ll just finish that job.. I don’t know why but I saved all the lights.
Some wire too… always need wire ..right ! And then I made a pile out of the Jayco.. Because like I said .. I only want the frame.
Some of the wood was rotten in the walls, and a lot of the screws were not holding anything. Hence the pile. One thing is for sure… it will no longer be a Jayco tent trailer. Even though that’s what the registration says. Okay now we have a trailer frame & wheels !
Oh ya with torsion suspension too !
Hopefully not wore out yet. So there we have it…
What should we make of it ?
I’m kinda favoring a little tear drop style trailer. It’s the perfect frame for that.
Hmmm.. That would be fun. Well I’ve got time to think about it. Yes.. and so I set to work designing this :
This would be a “Foamy” build. Construction foam board with a fiberglass finish. Just a bed and some storage inside. Rear outdoor kitchen . Lots of teardrop trailers use this setup…
