Default Expo/Camping trailer build

I want to build a offroad trailer and have a general idea of how I want to build it.


Junkyard short bed tacoma rear frame, bed, suspension minus axle
Add a trailer axle under the leaf springs and wire trailer brakes

Build a tonneau cover from plywood with support to mount a RTT

Fab a trailer tongue with room for 1 propane bottle, 2 gas can and 1 water can

Build a solid rear bumper with D-rings for recovery/tiedowns

Now all this is planned and purchased except for the truck bed. Im hoping that posting on here will network me with someone who knows someone who is parting out a tacoma.

For an axle I would highly recommend a Dexter brand axle with electric brakes. Also look at E-trailer dot com for good deals on a lot of trailer hardware and accessories.
