A homemade box trailer holds a four-link suspension on air bags attached to a fabricated axlehousing with electric brakes. Brent originally tried a leaf spring setup but found it too bouncy on the trail. The trailer houses a 29-gallon electric pumped water supply and a giant marine cooler and still has plenty of room for camping gear. Brent built a flexible hitch coupling for the trailer, and it quite simply follows the big Chevy everywhere it goes.
