I'm thinking I might convert my 2 wheel 6' x 10' enclosed trailer with ramp door into kinda toy hauler camper. Looking for some ideal's of what to do. Need wheel chalk and tie downs in the floor, maybe a couple cabinets in the front corner and a fold down bed in the rear. Use a pop up outside for shade and a table to cook on. I have seen a few trailers done like this but would like photo's of some of your's to get idea's. I'm just getting idea's now but might start this winter. Thanks

We did that a few times with our 6X12 trailer. I used a front wheel chock I could easily remove and put tie down close to the walls for the rear

we just used an air mattress and used a storage bin as a table in the front for our lamp and to put keys and such on at night. then we had another bin for our clothes. I drilled a hole in the floor at the nose and dropped a 25 foot heavy ext. cord to use for power inside. I didn't bother insulating it as it's such a confined space it heats and cools pretty fast and holds well.

I would just pull the cord back in and wrap it up with bungie cord when traveling.

we liked doing that the few times we did it but we can't really do that anymore as I can't get the rig in a normal trailer anymore

Just a thought but remember the center of gravity or the amount of tongue weight when arranging the inside! Moving the bike to the rear of the trailer to add "comforts" and such to the front might result in a light tongue weight causing an ill handling trailer!!

watch the weight.  will not take much to overload a single axle.

This trailer has 5600 lbs axle, and I will put a tool box on the front for extra storage. I can't get to crazy because I still need to use it to haul gear in. If I put a wheel chock in it will have to be removable and Harbor freight has the D ring tie downs that mount to the floor. It has a side door that is nice and I have slept in it overnight a few times but the wife is not to crazy about it. So it needs a little fixin up  for her. I will have to make some stairs to get in and out the side door. Maybe find some from a motor home and mount them. I have hauled the bike a couple times and it handled fine but the trailer had about 800 lbs of 50 amp cable in the front so the tongue weight  was fine. I learned my lesson along time ago about tongue weight moving my mother in law from Washington. I was in a rest area repacking the whole load to get tongue weight. Any way I'm just thinking about this cause I have the trailer, I'm not to sure I want to haul the bike and then ride it. I do like riding and seeing things.
