Default Cargo Trailer Conversion Update

Wanted to show yíall how the rolling deer camp has progressed. Absolutely the best investment Iíve made for the lease. Hereís the link to the original thread.
https://discussions.texasbowhunter.c...=Portable+deer

We have spent at least 20 nights in it this year, very comfortably. Not a mouse or a bug has infiltrated it yet, while another lease memberís rv is overrun with them. I brought her home yesterday and converted her to fish a couple of kayak tournaments.

That is great news on the mice. I hate those suckers. I was wondering the other day how it did this year. Great job on taking your granddaughter.

Pretty cool!


Is your Ranger lifted at all? I have been wanting something like this but my measurements told me that my Ranger is too tall to fit.

Not lifted and stock tires. You can order extra height on the trailer and door. If I remember, I ordered an extra 6" for clearance.

Thanks for the comments guys. It was a long time in planning and I still think of new things from time to time. Going to add some shelving in front over the summer.

If you heat it, make sure you vent it. 2 guys and a kid killed by carbon monoxide last year in one.

I just bought new fire alarms, there are battery powered CO alarms that were not expensive.

Nice build. I saw a guy with one for elk hunting being pulled up a national forest road.

Just saw this. Yes, Iíve got smoke alarms as well as carbon monoxide detectors in there. If it gets cold enough to need heat all night, I just crank the generator and run a small electric space heater. I also keep a window cracked if using the catalytic heater to take the chill out. Safety was a big priority since my family stays in here with me.

If you have 110v you could use an electric blanket and be as snug as a bug in a rug. CO monitors are inexpensive and itís a silent killer.

Be safe and hunt hard.
