I love your idea to convert boat trailer into blind. I think this is by far the best DIY blind so far since I jumped on board on this site. :thumbup:

I would prolly steal your idea if my ranch was bigger but just 32.5 and Im gonna stick to elevated tower blind.

I brought a little 4' sheet metal brake home from work to bend the tin for the corners. It worked very well!

Yep, I havn't cut them out yet. The sheet metal is basicly just a watershed. I'll cut out the full windows from it. Then I'll build steel outer windows out of 14ga an inch bigger all the way around than the window openings.... to hinge on the outside. There will be lexan windows inside that slide down below the opening in tracks.

I havn't even started the inside yet, aside from the wiring. I couldn't put the floor in because I wanted to be able to weld it to the trailer from the inside, and it won't fit in the shed on the trailer, so I waited until it was dried in to drag it outside. I havn't even worked on it in a couple months until Friday night. Funds and time have been short. Hopefully I'll get a little more steady at it.

It's not as top heavy as I'd feared, but I have to re-work the door latch now that it's on the trailer...or maybe just the weather stripping. Then I'll put some foam closures under the R-panel, then apply a couple cans of great stuff foam, and several tubes of silicon......and put the floor in.

I'm just glad to have it out of my shopita for now, but it's gonna suck finishing the inside this summer.
