Chamber is 80" long and has a 30" diameter.
Thinking about putting the fire box in the front and using tuning plates.
They will still want to use it as a grill as well.
I'd like to hear your opinions.

Would it be pipe dream to think that I can replace part of the trailer tongue frame, and incorporate it into the 1/4" FB?

Not at all, I think it is very doable especially if the firebox will fit between the Vee part of the tongue.
If it will then the front cross member can come out an be tied in that way.
I hope this helps. Very Happy

Yes, thanks

I was thinking about removing part of the V.
So the FB might be low enough and have the FB side door run along the same angle as the tongue V?

Or possible have a /_\ shaped FB.

+ 1 on that. That would look awesome. Great conversation starter as well.
