Rack Build taking shape

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

I have started cutting and welding tube on the rack build for the M1101 trailer.  Starting to look like a rack.  The idea is for the rack to be at about the same height as the truck (with the roof top tent) on it during travel and then raise up about 12 inches giving the tent a sleeping height of 7 feet. This will serve a couple objectives.

  • enable me to secure under the rack / RTT all my camping equipment and keep a lot of it out of the weather.
  • lower my center of gravity
  • lower my wind resistance
  • give me access to the trailer and contents while parked
  • give me nice high platform for whatever

still need to iron out the details on how to make it extend and retract but I have some ideas.
