    Worked on the trailer build a little over the last few days, trying to figure out how to hang a ledger on the wall for my cots that will fold up against the wall. Well it finally came to me......automotive clip fasteners, worked out really well to attach the 1 1/2 angle ledger and strong as hell.

    Here's the 1 1/2 angle iron ledger in place, I will weld hinges (cots to ledger) so I can fold them up when not in use.

    Fabed out a propane bottle rack that slips in a receiver welded to the tonge, built the shelf to fit a milk crate. I'm not sure but I think you can go to prison for "BARROWING" milk crates but i'll take the chance.

    Solar panel is installed over the man door, still have to run the wires through the roof and connect to controller and batteries.

    The panel is a 20 watt and didn't cost me anything, did a little trading with a buddy. I love to horse trade

    Worked on my trailer mod a bit more this weekend and finished welding the cot frames. The frames are constructed of 1" EMT with pre bent 90* corners. One of the pics shows how I constructed the leg hinges, they work really well. I didn't want cot legs that either screwed in or pined so I came up with this hinge idea, when you fold the cot against the wall the legs fold against the bed, when you fold the cots down for use gravity folds the legs down.

    Well, here's a progress update on the trailer build. Purchased some cordura fabric and had a local tarp and awning shop cut, sew and install grommets in the cot material.

    I used p-cord to lace the fabric to the frame.

    This is what I came up with to latch the cots to the wall when not in use, worked out pretty slick.

    In the top cabinet I installed a battery charger for the onboard 12 volt system when I'm on a generator or plugged into a 120v source.

    I installed a couple 12v cigarette type plug-ins for charging misc. pieces of equipment...cell phones, gps etc. Also installed 120v wall plug for whatever and plumbed in the propane for stove and heater.
