New Cargo Platform

I've wanted to get the generator out of the truck and onto a cargo platform on the back of the trailer for some time now. During our last trip, I noticed that the trailer came from the factory with attachment points for a cargo tray so I contacted my Jayco dealer and they got me a quote. $774 plus shipping and tax.....

I have the tools, so I roughed out a plan and had a mechanical engineer at work check the dynamic loading in Solidworks so I'm good to go.

Support bars are 2-1/2 x 1/8 wall square tube and the platform is
2-1/2 x .078 wall square tube, 1/2" expanded metal, and some 1/4" round bar set 1" above the deck for convenient tie-down points.

I threaded some holes in the bottom of the support brackets to remount the stabilizers.

Here is the result:









I can stand on it and jump up and down and it does not deflect any noticeable amount

Oh yeah, I spent about $200 on materials

Thanks,

I may cut out the 4" risers just to make it easier to get the genny on there..

Wow that is very nice. Could you not load the gen from the end without the riser? They
look good for securing rope to.

Can yours fold up or be removed nice looking setup. Those brackets make it easy to devise a proper support.
