    Cook trailer build questions

    I personally like the stoves with a removeable griddle, like most Camp Chef, Colman or Partner Steel products as I'll occasionally use pots for boiling pasta or a kettle for coffee. If you're confident that all your cooking will work on a griddle, then the convenience of not having to get out...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    I've been making lots of progress on the build during the little bit of free time I have split up. I'd like to get some more detailed photos of what I've done, but for now here is a picture of the trailer with the slide out kitchen in use on our weekend trip. The current sink / stove slide is...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Been slowly working on / planning the trailer interior over the winter. I am building a frame out of aluminum extrusions from tnutz that will bolt to the cross members of the trailer. I have dry fit everything together in the basement ( ignore the clutter in pics ) so that all the tnuts will be...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    I looked through a lot of builds on this site as reference for many ideas, but none to specific. Adv4x4 on Youtube is probably the best resource i've found for using ACM. I have not yet finished the exterior corners, but plan on using some angle aluminum. I am waiting for warmer weather for...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Got the trailer registered and the tent mounted. Next on to the interior. The plan is to have the fridge and sink slide out the front door, with a secondary slide for the stove. For the rear I am planning on having some large drawers with a flat deck on top for larger items such as camp chairs...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Sprayed, and didn't do as good of a job as I would have liked. There are a few spots that got sprayed wet, and a little bit of striping.

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Got the doors mounted and the trailer weighed today. 900 lbs for the axel, and 130 for the tongue, so about 1030 lbs total.

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Got some raptor on the body to color match the Jeep and the cross bars welded on. The fenders and rack still need to be raptor lined in black. I also raptor lined the doors to match the rest of the body, but they aren't pictured as I'd like the raptor to cure a bit longer before putting them in...

    Camp Chef Everest 2X propane hose

    This video goes into how to make a 90° quick connector for the Everest and Mountaineer. Good info for options on using a larger propane tank.

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    I did not like how my framed fenders had so much space between the tires and the top, and realized I was looking at the wrong spec for the timbren flex, so decided I'd rebuild my fenders. I'm definitely happy I did, as I believe theses look much better

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Over the last two weeks I got the electrical done for the tail lights, trailer breaks, and added a 7 pin harness with break controller to the Jeep. Today I finally got the skin on. Some ACM from Piedmont Plastics attached with VHB tape. I cut the roof and floor panels prior to installing as the...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Lots of progress this week. Got some chain holders, front stabilizer brackets, and a rear hitch welded on. Made some tail light brackets for the rear channel and raptor lined the frame. I taped over where the VHB tape will go for the ACM panels, as primer should be a better surface for that.

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Have been getting lots of little things done. Hoping to raptor line the frame next weekend, but still got a few welds to do and a lot of rust / mill scale removal first. Initially I only had the two areas for the crossbars, but after talking to 23zero, they mentioned the tents should not...

    Welding Square tube to Square tube

    I played with both buildings my fenders. Although it's a lot wider cut than yours would be, the mitered one definitely looks better and was much easier to weld

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Sounds like a nice build. Do you have a build thread? I am still trying to figure out exactly how my slide out kitchen will be laid out.

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Haven't made much progress lately, spring is just too busy. Finally got some time to do a little work and got the fenders framed. The 2200lb timbren specs say they have about 6" of travel, and with the current weight the suspension is only squatting by about a 1/2". I still need to figure out...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    That's a real nice setup That's a real nice setup. Love the door storage. Maybe after ic I get a little more comfortable with where I can tow I'll consider another build more similar to this. Do you know the weight of the trailer?

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    I gave building a teardrop style trailer a lot of consideration, but wanting to keep it smaller (my trailer is a 6 foot box, and I'm 6 foot tall), and didn't like that many end up using the sleeping area as storage where you have to unload to sleep. As of now I'm planning on getting the Tuff...

    Dedicated enclosed rtt trailer for the JK with slide out kitchen

    Thanks! I worry a bit about the large street tires on the trailer, but really like the look of matching wheels / tires, plus not needing a extra spare is nice.
