    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.

    I see them, I think it has to do with the browser you're using.

    I am using google chrome to host them through a gmail account. I wonder if that has something to do with it.

    Yes.

    Typically... If the person who wants to view your images isn't logged into Google, they can't see them.

    Nice job on the trailer, I think I "Need" one like that. Speedy stitchers are handy, I've been using one since I was a kid.

    I like Rustoleum, they just didnt have it in that color at the local parts store. The Dupli Color is paint and primer for what ever thats worth.

    That trailer looks very handy. The canvas cover looks good.
    I think it will be very handy.

    Weathermaster 12 oz. Canvas Tarp, 6 ft. x 8 ft. at Tractor Supply Co.

    I got one from Tractor Supply. I could of gotten it cheaper online but with the shipping it would have been pretty close to the same price. Plus I got it that day vs having to wait.
    Pretty sure its the one in the link.
