The Trailer

We took delivery of our new 2016 6′ x 12′ Homesteader cargo trailer in the summer of 2015. Aside from the custom concession window that we had installed by the manufacturer, it was literally an empty box.  Armed with a shoestring budget, some basic construction/electrical knowledge, an amazing father-in-law (thanks, Scott) and a very forgiving wife (thanks, Kristin), we dove head first into converting this thing into a rolling tailgate. 

Upon receipt, it immediately went to the sign shop to get a graphics package installed and then underwent a couple of weeks of upgrades before the first game of the 2015 season, including:

  • Custom TV mount with 40″ LCD tv
  • Full 12V wiring, including lighting and multiple outlets inside and outside – originally run off a 4000 watt generator
  • Rubberized flooring
  • Misc shelves/mounting points to haul our gear 

Since that time, we’ve added a number of upgrades:

  • 50″ LCD tv
  • Custom tongue mounted battery box, featuring 6V golf cart batteries
  • Sound system
  • Cooler space for 10+ cases
  • 3 pop up canopies & who knows how many chairs
  • New graphics package – summer ’18

We’ll continue to upgrade and improve the trailer as needed.  Check this page for updates and photos.
