Custom expo/jeep/m416 style trailers from RLC

We can build custom trailers for off-road vehicles.

Pictured is a basic small trailer we're building but I'm open to building custom to your specs.

We have pulse mig capability so can make the whole thing or just the tub out of aluminum.

***Any style construction, any material, any axles/suspension/brake system***

Just some specs on the one pictured. I'm getting this one finished soon and am going to put some epoxy primer on it and paint it desert tan.

3" Channel frame. Drilled receiver stock tongue under the standard 2" ball coupler

14 gauge tub.

3500lb dexter axle 1500lb springs 5x4.5 bolt pattern

31" tires

LED lights.

16 ga fenders.

This one will be $2995 when finished.

Built this one a few years ago and sold it before finishing the interior. Sort of a militaristic teardrop camping trailer.

Would like to build another similar one and finish it out.

We have A LOT more capabilities now vs when I built this so much more is possible.

Nice looking product, I see that gusset at the bend, attention to detail...Plus the gun ports on the tear drop are Walking Dead worthy...

Thanks.

Finally finished. Went with Saraha Tan paint (Jeep 2012 color) and had it deglossed. Over epoxy primer

Going to do an awesome build soon with one of these with Timbren axleless suspension, aluminum tub, roof top tent...the works.

The original is still here but let me know what you need and I can build it.

Looking forward to seeing your new trailers with the axle less design. Do you have an approximate price range?

Customer bailed on the axle-less build...but I sold another one like the above and will be building soon.

It's getting 35s and a roof top tent.

Basically price will be the same except add the difference between the price of the axle less suspension and the stick axle. Prob in the neighborhood of $500 more. (subject to confirmation._

^^^ this one is a bit different but visually similar.

I added 1x2 tube for the side rails and light location is better, among other things.

Made the bolt on rack for the roof top tent and mounted it.

5x5 bolt pattern to match the JK.

As mentioned, I can make just about any type of custom expo trailer for you.

I've been building a few more of these.

(Ignore the wheels...customer was supplying them for his yota and all I had were some gmc wheels for pic purposes.

Building another one of these now as well as another small camping trailer.

We've built one of these and are building another one similar right now:

Military Inspired Teardrop style camping trailer Custom Made for You. | eBay

I had a build thread on here but photobucket took it out.

If you have an adblock you can see all the pics on photobucket...jamscal is my name there same as here.

We're also going to build a enclosed 'gear hauler' trailer soon if that's what you mean.

Thanks,

James
