It has been a long three and half months since a fire halted production of our Dinoot fiberglass tub kits. Yesterday was a major milestone in restarting production. The damaged molds have all been remade and we moved the entire mold set to a new facility. Over the next week, a final cleanup, inspection and pulling
Here is an overview of a Utilitarian style multi purpose camping trailer I recently setup for a customer. For Compact setups, I would normally use a 3.5’x5′ or 4’x6′ trailer, both under $500.

Andy Lilienthal wrote a great article for OutdoorX4 Magazine’s Trailer-Supported Adventures section titled “Dinoot Trailers for the budget-conscious adventurer”. The article begins on page 60. If you have a hardcopy; it is in Issue #18. The
How many people decorate (trailers) for Christmas? We thought we were the only ones that made Lego Dinoot Jeep Style trailer Christmas scenes. But our customer, Kyle, out did us on a grand scale. Kyle went all out this year decorating his Jeep and matching Dinoot Jeep Trailer. It brings a smile to our faces and we
I’ve thought about making some sort of Camp Kitchen / Chuck Box / Grub Box for a while so after a visit from Hans of Trail Kitchens and some testing, we will be adding the Compact Model Camping Kitchen to our line up. With many great features it was an easy choice. Here are a few
We are very happy with how the Modular Bolt Together Trailer Racks prototype (no (customer) welding required) DIY trailer rack has gone together.

Beginning to work on my new trailer rack concept prototype for my demo Dinoot Trailer. Yesterday I cut all the tubing pieces to size and started test fitting. As is the nature of prototyping; found a hiccup with the first batch of Corner Connectors. Luckily it was quick and easy to resolve. Got the trailer rack
I’ve begun prototyping a new trailer rack concept. The idea is taking a modular, bolt together approach to create a versatile system adaptable to many trailer applications. The focus is designing it for DIYers so they can use a small collection of components to create rack setups tailored to their needs. I envision working out the
When building a DIY Compact Camping Trailer many folks begin with a Harbor Freight bolt-together style frame kit. The Heavy Duty Harbor Freight frame kit we prefer using has a 2000 lb load capacity. For lightweight home-built camping trailers, this can make for a stiff ride which is why you may need Smooth Riding Camping
Our new demo fiberglass J-Series Dinoot for towing around with my Chevy Tracker is just finishing up and we took it on the road. I tweaked the size to be better portioned for my Tracker. Made the tub 5′ long x 51″ wide. Then pushed the tires almost to the edge of the tub and covered
