It's aluminum, very light - rated for 8,000/800. The ball weighs as much as the adapter it feels like.

This and the stainless ball and cross pin make for less rust/corrosion to deal with.

Nice!
Do you haul it loaded with water and fuel? How much of each and what’s the gross weight of the trailer?

I would think it must be towed empty as the tanks are too far to the rear to balance full of water. Kind of looks like a Louisiana crab/crawfish boil party pot though. Or in a pinch you could make soup for thousands!

Very nice build and I like the custom cover as well!

Yeah first all villagers take bath and after we make soup.
To show off more with my tub I have made a little web page.http://www.tubtoheaven.com/Tub-To-He...athing-tub.pdf My neighbor is working as a sales manager and my sister's husband is photographer, we made this web page together, why not to show off with it.
It was gold winter night in Estonia. We were in sauna and we got brilliant idea to make our own bathing tub. Thankfully my neighbor had stainless steal tank from milk factory and next day we dragged it next to sauna and we made fire under it
And so this build was started.

Where on the trailer are the chimney sections stowed for transport?

528 gallons = 4,488 lbs of water. Add in the tub itself and there is no way you are towing that full. Most of that weight is behind the axle. Has to be filled on location.

Maybe flip it around so tub is in front of axel. Then can tow with just about any 1/2ton truck. I realize Iím leaping continents.
Itís still cool as ballz.

Two piece chimney are placed between boiler and tub for transport, there are two pracets where chimney is placed and strap are holding them in place.
I made it on purpose that tub is behind the axle, you cant tow it when water is in (I'm lending it to my friends and their friends). Empty trailer/tub is palenged so that you have 20kg pressure on towing hitch.
