    Looking back, this build became an obsession with accumulated parts, different ideas, and "trying" to make an all-inclusive build where I'd want for nothing more. Ultimately, it was unlike the "truck-box" camp trailers that I used to build years ago- and was a really just a challenge. I found my old plans from @99-00, and realized that if I did it again, I'd probably just mod one of those older set-ups. It was so much easier and I could build one in a week or two. Funny thing now is that most of the "big" builders "newest" trailers are almost identical to the trailers we built almost 20 years ago.
    To sum it up- keep it as simple as possible, save all the good ideas and energy for the camp, not the trailer.

    Are those tank brackets just semi air tank brackets ?

    Old military stuff.... They fit the little 5/10? pound tanks perfectly. A small flange at the bottom or the top of the tank with the bracket gives it two points of mounting although you would be hard-pressed to budge the tank (even in a hard collision) with just the straps.

    I'm going to go through my old take off air tank mounts we have at work . Hopefully I'll find one that fits
