Still needs (a lot) of work. But I'm pleased with how it looks!

I don't have too much info on the Chateau Portal Trailer. It's a tilt-dump trailer, and from what I could find, it looks like a u-build "partial assembly required" from a department store circa late 70's early 80's. 200 lb weight and 1,100 lb capacity. I fully rebuilt it, welded the frame where needed, new hubs/bearings, wheels/tires and wiring. I have the Jamie Rivers front and rear hitches. It's been on a couple of very successful trips and thousands of km's, and now a travel essential.

It is. Thatís how they did temp hitches back in the days of big solid chrome bumpers. This one is actually a U-Haul rented hitch one would rent when renting their trailers. I donít pull anything with it but it keeps officers from calling my tag-a-long a trailer and keeps me from required trailer tag.

Do these trailers use a spring/rubber torsion or are they suspended by the rubber for the dampening? Ive seen zero fittings so I know they are greased but do they move freely. I can't seem to find the answer. Thanks Rippers for the pics.


Hi, what brand tires are you running on that Essen?
Like them Cool

This is our 1976 Sage Green Westfalia Sweet Pickle and her 1980'ish Coleman Caboose Trailer we call Pepper. It weighs 160 lbs empty and has a max load capacity of 750 lbs. The clam shell top can be opened to either side though the supports that prop it open are meant for the right side. You store it by removing the top turning it upside down and placing it in the base. It then can stand on it's end against the garage wall. Our hitch is one made by Jamie Rivers (http://www.globalserve.net/~jrivers/latebayhitch.htm) and it works great, I can remove the hitch and store it when not using and save my shins. The trailer is suited well for hauling tents, awnings, chairs and whatever else we use to carry on the inside or in the luggage rack of the bus, though I would not put anything delicate in there with it's leaf spring suspension. Much more comfortable for the people in back as we travel. When driving you barely know it is there and we can cruise 65mph easily (on flat ground of course Laughing ). We had someone reproduce the stickers (pictures are of the original stickers) for the sides and put new wheels and tires on it.
