Lookin' good Tim - it's a great setup for a dual purpose toy/camper trailer. That new frame you had built is BEEF for sure.

Just don't get rear-ended with that tank hanging off the back....

Yeah, a good argument for getting my brake lights hooked up . Though half the time you'd need to plow through a bike before you get to the tank, so it'll be a mixture of propane and gasoline in your crumple zone... don't follow too close!

Got my new tires. 30 x 9.50 x 15" Maxxis Big Horns. I'll be strapping the spare to the front deck for the short term, eventually will make a carrier for the rear bumper.

Got around to making my carrier. Also the first official 80 series parts have made it... the pulley came all the way from northern CA for the privilege here (thanks again BrentBA!)

Started with a piece of angle, chopped it up and 6 sticks later had it zapped to the frame.. Added in a couple tie plates for good measure, but at least half those welds have decent penetration so am not too worried about it. I also cut the long side a little long, needed a MSFH to get it in position, so that interference fit makes the welds almost cosmetic. The short one is on the back bumper so will be easy to monitor.

The obvious comment is about how low the tire is... yeah it's lower than I wanted but it's underneath the lifter access, so couldn't be tucked up any higher. I thought of putting this on the front of the camper, but then it kinda blows my less tongue weight crusade... but considering how long and low the rest of the setup is, I'm thinking it'd be some freaky series of events to smack that spare on something the truck's rear axle, hitch, front of camper, and camper axle miraculously cleared. It's not like we're running Cliffhanger with a camper here.

Overall pretty happy with it, and lots more room on the deck up front for cargo.

It looks like your swing-out on the 100 works with the trailer hitched, that's nice.
