Looking into doing something, build or buy so I. Can keep all our gear together and just drive away with it

I am thinking a 4x6 enclosed or building an actual off road trailer, I see guys love using 1/4 ton army trailers but they seem expensive and when I used to see em they always had rott issues in floor

Just storage, 16" door on the side near front, tailgate door on rear, I have 50" aluminum boxes to mount on each side, also want small platforms on both sides of the wheels

This will be an evolving work in progress, for now just storage, I will post pics as I make real progress

Nice. Any thoughts on changing the hitch to a ring (pintle?) or one of those lock'n'roll setups?

Yes I need to build the hitch cause trailer has female socket at each end

Doors are on latches finished padding on floor, need to throw gear in so I can configure inside
