at the time that last pic was taken it weighed 1760 thats with the camping gear and kayaks on, that was with the 2000lb axle tho. it bent at the spindles from the 35's on offest wheels and spacers, so it was replaced with a 3500lb axle so i probably gained 50 or so lbs there. alot of weight could be cut easily if planned out right and materials were switched out to aluminum through out.
c monster- i lost track of material cost along the build,some stuff i already had some stuff got bought and didn't get used.i would guess between 2500-3000. definitely cheaper to buy a cheap pop up camper and throw a heavier axle and springs under it-add a set off 33s and go. if anyone is building or repairing a camper tho i have most pieces of a 25 foot 5th wheel camper here,windows,sink,boxes of wiring and hardware etc. all cheap
ya the back hatch opens up.theres a lower storage area and a table top section for cooking on-will get some pics in a day or two. the 5th wheel stuff i got from a guy wh junked his 5th wheel trailer due to water damage.i'm up in new glasgow.
