Well, the time has come to put the plans into action. As a baseline here is a shot of the trailer in its new home in a pristine state. This is a covered trailer park where I will install the solar system, windows, HVAC system, and any penetrations to the roof or walls for windows and such. I am hopeful to include videos of this project but here are some stills of the basics.
I will give you some shots of the interior so we have a clear starting point. We are starting at ground zero. I got the trailer while I was living in Texas a year ago on an awesome deal. It has some hail damage but I am choosing to ignore it, it did nothing to the structural integrity of this unit. This is a very well built 30ft long car hauler. I have great expectations for it. I am super excited about this project.
I will continue to remove all the wall paneling and the ceiling sections. The goal and first steps are to clear out the interior and work on the electrical infrastructure. I am going to have a major solar system as part of the first part of this project but more on that later. I am running a small solar generator for basic lights as I am working on this in the evenings and it is dark out. I have very limited access to the grid. I have a lot of this project to share and am eager to answer questions if you want to jump in and ask.
As with all these projects it is what the person building it brings both in the vision and capacity to build that guides the project. I have been following blogs on cargo trailers for the last two years. I don't quite understand the "haters" who have to jump in and correct someone else's project so be nice and I will gladly respond. I would love to hear about your project as well.
Here is a shot of my little solar generator. I am currently charging it on 110v but once the weather changes I can get some sun in my life and do it correctly.
A lot more to come over the coming weeks and months. I expect this project to run two years as time is not that available for me to put into this but, I am eager to move it along as quickly as I can.
