I am going to skin it with 16 gauge I want it smooth on the outside . Right now I can still lift the frame by myself Without the tires on so I would guess it weights around 200-250 🤷‍♂️ Figure tires are about 100 lbs each. I am hoping to be under 500 lbs when it’s finished . I plan on making a lid for it so maybe 600 lbs all in .

Am I the only one impressed this was built in a week, nice job! Cool paint job too. Matching paint job on the trailer perhaps?

Ok open to ideas here . Not sure what to use for the floor . Sheet of aluminum ? 3/4 Marine Ply with Frp on the bottom and Marine carpet on top ? 14 gauge steel . This will get a Top made so it will be water tight . If i go with the Steel or Alum I would have to get a rubber mat to keep things from sliding around alot

If you did the marine ply you could recess some e-track. I love the stuff lots of different attachments available for securing loads or accessories.

Here the use of phenolic plywood is common for trailers and horseboxes, it is waterproof. I think if I was doing it I would use a sheet of either aluminium or stainless and coat the interior with bedliner. My trailer is monocoque from 3CR12 steel
