but we too LOVE the Benroy style! (best use of available space!)
I have a pop up camper for the misses and the youngun'. This camper is just for me and my motorcycle trips to the mountains, and wherever else. I wanted something small and light that can run off my small Honda generator. And that I can use anywhere, like on side of the road in the middle of nowhere.

I like your idea on the tongue and have a possible improvement for you. I did something similar on a log splitter but made the jack part of the fixed (trailer side) rather than the tongue side. It allows me to remove the entire tongue for theft and I'm less apt to gouge my knees when working around it. In your case it would also deter theft and allow you to adjust the tongue without the burden of the tongue weight. It appears you have put a lot of planning into your build so I suspect you may have considered this already.

Best picture I could find, the tongue slides into a receiver like yours near the yellow wires.
Yes, I am putting a stabilizer jack on the front. I just haven't yet. I have to patch up the 4 holes in the square tubing and build some rails in between the taillights and fenders. When I do that, I'll weld the jack on.

Of course I have $0.02 to offer also

Instead of that gargantuan cooling unit, you can get a De Longhi portable heat pump - A/C for around $500.

Wish I could. Wouldn't be enough room on the inside for that.

The silicone dried up faster than I thought it would. So today, I cut the notch for the hatch on the walls. Then laid down epoxy, then bed liner on the bottom.

I also I put the bed liner on the bottom of the floor. So I am going to let everything cure for the night. And in the morning, I'll place everything on the trailer, and start on the cabinets.
