Climateright........I don't know anything about it, other than I probably won't have enough power to run the heat this winter, unless I'm plugged up somewhere. Power for the Dometic fridge & lights is covered.

I've read through all the pages and took alot of info to apply to my new to me scout trailer. This forum is awesome.. I've add OVS 4 person tent and their huge 270 awning. I had to make a Bracket off the front to hold there length.

Added ARK jack front and rear. Front barely lifts the trailer enough but it works with this size tire.

Added a rear bumper with basket based on another user's suggestion. The company dirtworks is 5 minutes from my house and I liked the simple design for adapting it to out trailers. I mounted it using the receiver and d ring mounts. The ark Jack's in the rear swing to different levels and can be tucked underneath or to the side of the box. The side mount blocks the tag but allows for more clearance if needed off road.
Do you have the part/model number of the rear jacks? Ive been looking for something for upgrade the ones on my trailer

Robert at Dirtworkx made me a piece to add to the bumper where I put a couple of clamps and it’s perfect for mounting a shovel.

Hi Catalanbull, do you have some pictures of the jacks that Robert did for you. I have not yet install mine jacks on the trailer. I have the same ones as you the 30".
Yeah for sure, here are the pics of the arm he cut and welded the jack’s brackets.

Credit for this idea goes to Garrett

Finally got my trailer and already drilling into it on the second day. Will be installing additional supports for the 23Zero Walkabout 87.

Does anyone know how to adjust the alignment on these trailers. I’m not seeing anything that looks like it would adjust the toe and camber. So, if anyone has a pic of the adjustment points, that’d be super helpful.

Thanks for all the inspiration so far.

There are more details instructions somewhere back in this thread but here is a simple explanation and pics.

Outside adjustments are camber. Inside adjustments are toe. The disc (see second picture) rotates for the adjustments. Inside and outside adjustments will affect each other.

My trailer had a pretty significant "squat" when I first set it up. By making the adjustments I was able to remove almost all of the squat. There came a point where further adjustments could not be made.

I've put about 14K miles on the trailer and have noticed no unusual tire wear.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, very helpful! Now I'm just trying to figure out how to get the goofy shaped washers to move. I've loosened the nuts, but still can't get them to budge. Are they supposed to move freely?

Should the trailer be under load or jacked up off the ground?

Mine moved freely. Another thing you can do. Once you get the alignment use a paint pen or some crosscheck torque seal and draw a line on the nut to the frame. This way if it moves on you, you can tell easier. Mine move a smidge after hitting washboard roads, so I keep a wrench handy to put it back every so often.
