Dude, seriously impressed with your fabrication skills. You should join the Teardrops and Tiny Trailers forum. They have alot of trailer fabricators over there that may be able to offer you some tips on your interior.

License plate area

Tom, Where did you get the rear license plate enclosure?

If you have any spare time, I (and I bet others) would love to see more detail on how you bent the uprights. Awesome!

thanks
Mike

The license plate bay is a stainless lasagne dish for 5.99 Euro.



To bend my tubes I used this tool and bent by hand.



And I have a pattern to control the radius before I cut the tubes to the same length.

If you want to see the complete process from scratch, you can take a look HERE in the TNTTT forum, but you need a little time to read.

I built for one year now and there are 18 pages with 270 postings and 180 pictures inside.

What I post here is the Express Version

Thanks for your encouraging comments !

Tom

Thank you - I hope this will happen

To be honest, my plan is to sleep inside - to make it cosy and how I will decide on my 16 day test ride through spain.

I need only a foldable 3-inch foam matress, sleeping bag, a pillow and a hook for jacket, pants and T-Shirt.



Under the deck is a big baggage compartment for cloth.
And in the step in well under the desktop I can store my boots during the night.



Some LED lights for reading and writing in the evening I have.
But my first aim is to ride my 50th anniversary 7000 km tour and find out, what is missing and what would be fine for more comfort.

Tom

Thanks

But I am a System Administrator, working all day with my PC.
In my vacation no TV, no Radio, no Music and no Internet!

I only take a a cellphone with me to show daily a sign of life to my family.

But I will take photos to make again a travel diary on my homepage like I did for all my bike tours since 1988.

HERE you can see my 2013 tour thru Croatia (only with tent).

The button "Nächste Seite" means "next page" !

Next step was to strip the frame again, deburr all new added holes and degrease all so that the sikaflex would stick perfect in my seams.

Then I loaded my rivet gun and went out into the dark (garage) for the final shootout!

I started from the stern and riveted me in eight hours to the front, sealing every new seam with sikaflex.
