I made this last year and just now getting around to posting it. I picked the old guard shack up from a customer of mine. Rough shape but it turned out pretty awesome. I can stretch out and be comfortable while watching the kids bow hunt 150 yards away!

Nice. I have a small plywood decked trailer about same size for towing a three wheeler. I have considered doing the exact same thing to make a towable stand, but with a full back door so I could tow it with my three wheeler inside. I of course would have to build my own shack on it.

veryf nice. I especially like the a/c. Start running it now (i assume with a generator or get you one of those fancy new trucks with plug in power, park a distance away with long cord) so the deer and hogs will get accustomed to the sound while coming into your feeder. It will take some time but will work and then you can hunt in real comfort sleep2 and watch your bow hunters.

I have a trailer (no deck) to do a similar build but trailer frame is too narrow and low between tires so will have to build it up with metal for little heigth before building shack.

Windows are super big. Might consider curtains or something to keep them from seeing in so easily.

You might want to add leveling jacks at least on the back two corners. My trailer blind has jacks on all four corners. Can't stand hunting from an unlevel blind.

It has one on each corner. Super stable to hunt out of.

Ya the windows are way too big. I painted the top half, put camo screen in the bottom half and have curtains inside. Deer will get within feet when I corn close to the blind.

Ac was installed when I got it. Decided to just leave it as a conversation piece ha! The insulated walls make this thing very comfortable

That sounds pretty neat. This one is 6x8 inside. The whole family can sit for a hunt if we want too.
