    This is a great idea! Now all they need is to find a carpenter who likes the idea enough to devote some spare time to it.

    I have no idea why they think that $8K would be needed to build this. It’s the sort of thing that a tinkerer would do in a couple months of weekends and evenings for free, just for the sense of accomplishment.

    Fifty years ago, you’d see plans for this sort of thing published in the back pages of Popular Mechanics magazine.

    This video is pretty much unwatchable..panning, zooming and sped up I couldn’t get through it. I scanned ahead and never did see any trailer, and I could hardly understand what anyone said.

      Executive summary: There are a lot of lovely computer drawings of what such a trailer might look like if it were manufactured with fancy welded aluminum box-channel frame. No trailer exists as yet.
