This crazy idea was discussed with a fellow member or two a couple years ago. I had a tough time finding one but, Kenny found one with the help of Jeremy in Maryland. Yeah, a few miles away and in the wrong hands for my ideas to come to life until a trade was made. Kenny had bigger and better ideas than I did for the bed but, he traded the Green Monster off. We soon struck a deal and started making plans to build the trailer.

Huge thanks to @onelow1ton and @1BADI5

I'll update post with pics as I make changes and additions.

I thought a slide out BBQ grille would have been an option for the front compartment. But all in all, it's a sweet project Mark.

Ding ding ding! Already found a Coleman griddle/grille that fits in one of the draws with just cutting the back of the draw out for the gas line

:D

That's a really long tongue on that bad boy, any plans on adding anything up front? Glad someone finally did this though, looks awesome.

Yeah, gonna add a tray to hold two jerry cans, fire wood and the spare may end up there.

I was wondering about the same thing. Perfect extra storage space!

Another thing I kinda noticed was the trailer seemed to tilt down towards the front when hooked to your truck. Is the ball too low, or the trailer too high? (it might just be the angle of the pics I've seen) And is color matching it in the plans???

Worn out saggy leafs. I have a set of AAL's to go on the truck to solve that issue.

Still didn't answer whether it's going to be color-matched...

Awesome idea, great build, and glad to see that nation members contributing. Nice job! I'm very interested in seeing how this progresses and what your plans for it will include.
