    You could build one (well I could anyway) for around $1000 or less, 5K is crazy, there is nothing to a tray.

    I got quoted $1500 for a dog cage (I needed two), ended up building my own for about $350 for two cages, nice saving, and my time is free (sort of), but I have the tools to do it, so makes it a bit easier.

    Def cheaper to build one. Shouldn't be too hard to do at all either. Only issue i may have would be narrow and wide pipes to be bent into shape; narrow for the rope tie down bars and the wider pipe for the headboard and ladder bracket.

    Gonna be driving home in April to Tassie so may hit the old man up with his tools

    If you value you skills, time is certainly not free.

    I do go camping, my camping is basic, swag or tent, would love a camping trailer, I do have a trailer I take camping, to cart my stuff, but it's not a camping trailer.

    Got an issue with my ute.. It's a Triton MN and now and then when i take my foot off the accelerator the revs don't drop off for 1 to 2 seconds. Usually throttle response is as normal as anything.

    It's been happening for a while now.

    Lubricate your throttle assembly.

    Well it's more free than paying some dude $65 an hour for something I can do just as good, some things I can't do I pay people to do it.

    So how much you can save depends on your ability.

    I can figure out most mechanical things and how they work. I can pull things apart and usually figure out why they stopped working or how to fix them.
