Neat little homemade trailer - slow2day - 05-15-2019

At the ferry terminal in Prince Rupert,British Columbia. Looks like a Honda CRV pulling it.

It's cute and original.  Looks ultra light.

Kinda like a rustic (and very tiny) airstream!

...or an aluminum hobbit house!

now see I see it totally differently. I don't see cute I see someone who doesn't know what they are doing and a trailer that is probably a hazard on the road.

first off look a the clearance between the tires and the fenders. it's no much, which tends to mean that it's way overloaded.

then the windows. household windows have no place on a mobile build, none. I don't care how people try to justify it, it not the right product for the job.

then the door. obviously something is gong on there because they have a bungee holding the door closed. am I surprised? no not at all from what I can see from the pictures.

so to recap cute no, hazard yes.

I know I am a buzz killer, Debbie downer, but you have to be realistic whenyou look at things.

Yeah, not the most solid rig on the road, for sure.

I tried to catch up to them and check it out more to see if it was just a weekend toy or not but they outran me.

I'd be curious as to how leak proof it is...

What spelling errors?  You had me wondering that maybe the metal construction would  make it sound like a gong every time the bungee snapped the door closed...

Judging from the hinges, the door opens out. So I'm not sure how that bungee could be holding it closed, since it's pulling to the outside.
