FS: 5x9 Teardrop w/ Accessories - $6500 (Florida)

We are selling our super cute custom-built teardrop trailer. We have expanded our family and have now outgrown our lovely trailer. We greatly enjoyed building the trailer and then taking it on adventures through FL and the Carolinas. Construction of our garage kept trailer was finished in 2014 so there are many years of adventures yet to come!

-5’ x 9’ trailer sits on custom powder coated frame w/ leaf spring suspension. Axle is comprised of 0.25" steel tube & 5-lug 1750lb Northern Tool hubs. Needless to say it rides and pulls great and is overbuilt for the application. Northern Tool hubs have mounting tabs for electric breaks should you want to install and run a brake controller (not pre-wired but applicable pin the trailer harness is free for use)
- Flip away tongue extension- welded to allow for compact garage storage and makes for easier navigation of campsite (no bruised shins!)
- Includes 3x 1” trailer hitch mounts at the rear. The center can be used for bike racks or additional storage accessories in transit. The L/R mounts can be used for custom accessories (ie: tables) which may be mounted via receiver hitches for campsite use.
- Stabilizer welded to frame at each corner- allows for trailer immobilization regardless of terrain. Use of these stabilizers with dollies allows for easy manipulation and un-sprung garage storage in order to lengthen life of tires/suspension.
