    Im thinking of using a trailer that is basicly a box with a tailgate, the size of the box is 3.5′ by 6′

    this would set the camper a ways above the fenders. What would be the minimum  width and length of the supports under the floor. if that makes sense.

    is there a drawing of where the mounting points are. ? how far apart ect..

    thanks

    after looking at more videos i think I figured out you can pretty much mount it where you want.

    I thought there were pre set holes in the floor where it gets mounted to the trailer.

    Well, there ARE pre-drilled holes. Those are meant for aligning the ‘bunks’ that are provided with the kit. If you intend to mount to a trailer that is narrower than the camper itself, then you ‘might’ need to use them. Essentially, the ‘bunks’ are longitudinal rails, made out of 18mm plywood, that are used to elevate the shell about 3″ above the mount point (in most cases, that’s the wheel wells). My impression is that they were meant for mounting to a smaller ‘harbor freight’ style trailer.  For most other trailers, you’ll be doing a ‘drill-fill-drill’ where it makes the most sense for your case.  Hope this helps.

    I filled the existing holes and drilled new ones to match my trailer bunks.

     

    My floor sits just barely above the wheels. Any higher and the galley flat could be too high for some.
