Ok here it is!!! The hitch installed the wiring has been done and the trailer has been painted for a while. I finaly took pics. Thanks BIGMO for the great hitch. Thanks to Whitings57 & MrClean for the trailer advise. Original thread; New guy / Pulling a Trailer. On 12-8-2010.

Here is a few things I did different, The wiring was spliced in under the fender soldered and shrink tubed for the long haul (no ScotchLoc Connectors here). The wires & trailer plug I run to a "Grifter Box" that mounts behind the liscence plate with the 5-4 wire adapter. Sorry Mo this created a problem the box would not open as the ball was to close to the box, with some cutting, trimming, shaping and a little welding, viola, a longer tow bar was produced. Problem solved. Local auto parts store was able to do a pretty goog match on the paint not perfect but I,m happy. some WalMart bling on the trailer, a piece of carpet, some eye bolts, etc. and its finished here are the pictures!

Now you just need to go out to Home Depot/Lowes and pick up some grab rails in the bathroom/healthcare section. Backers on the underside of the top and screwed down gives you a luggage rack. It won't support much but it should hold a chair orone of those folding aluminum tables. I used mine to hold the 6 poles to my hammock stand. Not the ideal solution for that I think now, but it got me to Oshkosh and back.

Yours looks pretty good.
