Another great design LaMar! I'm planning to build a modified version of your Vetsport trailer next fall. I want to build it so I can remove it from my 5x8 utility trailer.Casters may be the solution.

Right on Brian! Have you looked at the Wombat micro-camper design?

It is actually a better design than the Vetsport and easier to build. I will send you the plans if you will build one.

Here is an overview of my own off grid cabin and many of the projects I have built or were built from my plans:

I have built many many small structures including the cabin I now live in. Construction is basic and you are welcome to visit my website to see the many structures I build. I can not afford to build all projects I design so I provide the plans for others. I am a professional architectural draftsman.
