I first built the trailer around 10 plus years ago. I had painted it red to match the TJ but its been a good trailer for the 5 recently. So I decided to freshen it up and paint it a more neutral color. Machinery Gray. Had to make a new spare tire carrier as the old one was bolted up against the body of the trailer. This allowed me to make the canvas top for it I made a wooden frame. 4 trusses and a center 2x4 that is removable from the trusses that way the whole thing can be stored away when not in use. Bought a speedy stitch from Joan Ann fabrics as well as a kit to make your own eyelits. I like the new color much better as it looks better behind both the green 5 and red TJ. The Speedy Stich was also supper easy to use. I wanted to the whole canvas tarp to sit up because I also have a fold out camping tent that mounts to the trailer. This way I can cover the whole thing when the tent is on it. Otherwise I would have went with the smaller tarp and not a 6x8.
