    I bought a 7x14 plus a 3. Ft v nose tandem axels built a set of bunk bed that go across the back that raise and lower so I can load and haul 2 atv's in in the front v nose I built a Formica top that you can cook on etc it has one shelf under it to hold what ever. Under the shelf up front I installed a 16000 btu RV heater with forced air fan that runs on 12 volt along with 12 volt lights I also made a fold up table on 1 side about 34x34 inches is really nice being able to sleep on a full size twin size mattress I fully insulated the walls and ceiling but not the floor I am pleased on how it came out but the mileage pulling it sucks 11 mpg diesel.I also have it wired and have 4 2ft fluorescent lights and 2 110 volt recepitals installed to runoff a generator. Hope this helps someone . John

    Well, here's an update on the progress of my cargo trailer mod. I installed a lockable RV style door latch on the man door.

    Pulled out all the plywood, insulated with rigid sheets, fully wired for inside and outside lighting and reinstalled the plywood. Also applied a few coats of Thompsons water seal to both sides of the plywood before install.

    Installed two RV deep cycles wire in series up front in the V portion, with the RV plug the batteries will be charging while in tow. Also fused all my light circuits.

    Still have to install the fold up cots and table, insulate the ceiling and sheet it. I also picked up a 20 watt solar panel with controller, i'll mount it on the roof up front.

    I can't wait to see the finished product either, unfortunately I have a tendency to never completely finish a project. Just keep adding things and tweaking others. Hopefully on this project I'll know when to stop and just use it.

    i would highly suggest a bug net on both doors and stitch it pieces of medal with magnets on the frame to keep out bugs or use Velcro.. i did that to my hunting trailer and made life much easier in the field!!!
