How to Convert Utility Trailer into a Travel Trailer
With the right tools, a plan and a little work, you can convert a utility trailer into a travel trailer. Learn how here.
This plan is given as a general guide. The skills necessary involve wiring, metal cutting, woodworking and more. If you're not handy, perhaps you know someone who is.
Many years ago, I showed horses with a friend. She and her husband purchased a six-horse fifth wheel thoroughbred trailer. The half of the trailer (a stall and a half), was converted into a travel trailer. The other half of that stall held equipment and feed. The last two stalls were for the horses.
They purchased a wrecked travel trailer and salvaged every working piece they could get. Very little went to the junkyard. Their cost was admirable: $1500 for the trailer, $3000 for the trailer and materials. Trailers remotely similar to theirs sell for $25,000 (used) and up. Nice job.
Start at the Beginning- Planning:
The best place to start is to get a notebook and pen. Decide what you want in a travel trailer, and ask yourself questions:
Registering your trailer:
Call your state's Department of Motor Vehicles and find out how to register a converted utility trailer. The designation will change from utility trailer to travel trailer. Be prepared to fill out paperwork, and perhaps take your travel trailer to a weigh station and more.
Don't be afraid if the process seems a little lengthy. It's for your benefit and safety. Converted trailers have been on the road for years.
Find RV windows at Motion Windows.com, PPL Motor homes in the parts department, local salvage yards, or your local RV repair shop. This allows you to choose the size and shape you want. For energy efficiency, you'll want the double-paned, insulated windows.
Cut your own door, trim with edging and attach to the trailer. You can also choose pre-made doors from the above providers and install it.
Decide before you start if you'll seal back loading doors, or keep them as is for hauling ATV's, bicycles, etc. On longer trailers, this can double as a storage room or impromptu extra bedroom.
Until the late 70's, most travel trailers were built without air conditioning. They did however, have a roof vent for air circulation. You'll be in a metal box- you need the vent. Additional smaller vents placed at the bottom of the wall allow cool air from outside to come in, and for the inside heat to escape.
For all but teardrops, roof-mounted A/C units cool every type of RV on the road today. They are far less expensive than a whole house unit. You can also mount a window unit in your RV. Make sure of the bracing so the A/C can travel without being damaged. Most RV'ers will either mount it in the front or back for travel.
Alternatively, place it in a side window for use, and take it in when traveling.
At an RV park or some campgrounds, electrical power is available. RV's hook up their electrical system to the park's power, called shore power.
For those who boondock, or dry camp, battery power is essential. Generators or solar panels charge the battery bank, which provide power to the RV.
Unless you cook everything on a barbeque grill, solar oven, or electrical appliances, you'll need propane. A portable propane stove with a supply of bottles is great for your cooking needs.
Propane lines, gauges, and connections should all meet safety guidelines. Do not salvage these- buy new.
Propane tanks are usually carried in a holder across the tongue of the trailer. Boxes are made to hide them from view and protect them from road debris. Home made utility boxes serve the same purpose while housing batteries at the same time.
If you can get a whole unit from a salvage vehicle, great. Carefully inspect the holding tank(s) to ensure there are no leaks. If there are, buy new holding tanks that match.
Designing an RV bathroom isn't that hard- buying items piece by piece can get pricey, depending on the manufacturer.
Installation of an RV toilet isn't much different than a house toilet. The toilet sits on top of a flange which allows waste to flow into a holding tank or sewer line. Bolts hold it to the floor.
The wastewater lines will be under the trailer. Practically every RV dealer and repair shop sell sewer hookup kits. Talk about your project with a sales associate-they'll be happy to help you design and purchase all you need.
Go as minimalist as you want or as fancy. A sleeping bag with a foam pad, air mattress, foam pad, or spring mattress, are all options in today's recreational vehicles.
Design a bed that matches your mattress size, one that folds down from a dinette set or sofa, or a bunk bed set up that folds down from the ceiling.
A permanently installed propane stove with an oven is wonderful. You can cook anything for yourself, family or guests.
This does require propane tanks, also called bottles mounted on the front of the RV, or in a holder inside one of the storage bins.
RV refrigerators aren't like house-type refrigerators. RV refrigerators are designed to stand up to the rigors of the road. They also operate on a dual or triple fuel system. This means they can draw regular 120Volt AC power, 12Volt DC (direct from a battery) power, or operate using propane.
They are also designed to expel the heated air from the coils to the outside of the trailer. A house-style refrigerator expels the heated air into the space around it. Against a wall, enclosed by cabinets, the house-style refrigerator won't last long, and your trailer will heat up.
They do cost more than a house-type refrigerator. If your budget won't accommodate one in the beginning, choose a small, dorm type refrigerator and ensure it won't bump around during transit.
An alternative in the beginning is the old favorite standby, the humble ice-chest. Models are available that claim to keep ice frozen for 5 days in temperatures up to 90 degrees.
Since your trailer is smaller than a house, salvage usable cabinets or buy the small kitchen cabinets found at home improvement stores.
The alternative is, of course, to build your own. They're basically boxes- just make sure they're mounted to the inside framing.
Inside Walls and Insulation:
Of course, you can have bare metal walls. It is your trailer. I promise in the summer heat and winter cold you'll want something more than a piece of metal between you and the elements.
The existing utility trailer walls are already built with framing that supports the metal. All you need is framing for inside walls. Since your trailer has heavy duty walls, 1.5inch framing is all that's needed. Fill in the spaces with the best insulation you can afford, and install it according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Frame around door and window openings to provide something for the mounting screws to attach to.
Here you have multiple options. Fuel operated lanterns, battery-operated lanterns and equipment, AC power or DC power.
Design your system to hook up to the park's (RV or campground) shore power connection. Research RV electrical systems to find every piece of equipment necessary, so you don't have a problem.
Solar power is also an option, and can work hand in hand with your AC system. Solar panels charge your battery bank. An inverter converts the DC power from the battery to AC power for your appliances. To maximize your power use, consider LED (light emitting diode) lights, which use minimal power and 12 volt appliances.
There are a plethora of books on RV solar power and solar power systems. Make sure you purchase everything you need ahead of time.
Generators should not be discounted. They produce AC electricity for your RV and emergency needs. For a DC system, an inverter is needed. Charge your battery bank and turn the generator off. There are devices which allow the generator to start automatically when the batteries are low, and turn off when the bank is charged.
For smaller batteries, consider a solar battery charger. They're inexpensive, and work beautifully. For cell phones, iPods and other small electronics, recharge with a separate solar charger.
Most floors in RV's and travel trailers are pressboard or heavy duty plywood. In utility and delivery trailers, you'll find wood planks. Ensure the planks are in good condition, seal them and place plywood over them. Vinyl, carpet or other flooring installs easily.
Books, magazines, a television (battery operated, AC powered or 12 volt), radio or even a deck of cards will suffice when the weather outside isn't friendly.
Wow, that's a lot to consider and design. Keep in mind that the home built travel trailers of the 20's and 30's didn't have solar, generators, battery banks, computers, satellite dishes, and so forth. They didn't have showers and toilets either.
If you want to get started with your conversion right away, I'd suggest the vent(s), windows and door first. An airbed or mattress on the floor, battery operated lights, portable propane stove, a porta potty, and something for entertainment and you're ready to go.
I would suggest painting the outside so the RV park or campground doesn't think it's still a utility trailer.
An outdoor extension cord plugged into shore power and through a small access panel gives you a single 13amp to 15amp circuit. Run your computer, a lamp, a small patio burner or TV/DVD player.
Build the rest as you have the funds and time. This gives you time to decide on a floor plan you'll love.
Have fun with your new travel trailer. Before long, you'll be showing off the exterior and interior.
