Hilldweller, don't you tow a trailer?



For your extreme adventures, hitch the Livin Lite Jeep Folding Camping Trailer 2010 to your vehicle.
Made exclusively for Jeep by Livin Lite, these folding camping trailers come in two versions to fit your lifestyle.
The first is an extreme off-road edition that comes with 37-inch Jeep rims and tires, a steel skid plate with hidden axle, articulating pintel hitch for maximum flexibility when off-road trailering, Jeep tail lights with cages, Jeep latches and a sprayed-on liner on its roof.
The street model comes with an actual Jeep rear bumper with matching fender flairs; Jeep tail lights, latches and Rubicon tires and wheels.
You can order yours in the same color to match new vehicles being sold, including matching interiors, rims and tires. Livin Lite.

Those pics came from a site with ziltch info. But this one may be somewhat helpful:

CLICKY

The standard Jeep trailer is expected to sell for $6,500 to $7,500 while the off-road edition will retail for $8,900 to $9,900, Tuttle said.

I took a good look at Livin' Lite before getting my trailer; they didn't have anything really offroad at the time.
The bed is a bit small for me too; it's a standard queen and I'd hang off ---- wouldn't be a problem if it was oriented the other way like the Conqueror.

I'm kinda torn, If I had that kind of cash I'd be stuck between getting the trailer and getting a bunch of crap for the Jeep that would tow the trailer

Do they (or somebody else) sell just a cool jeep trailer like that? I've seen videos and stuff on how yo build on but I don't have access to those materials or machines

Do a simple build.
Go to a builder and have a stout frame made with a 3500 pound axle, leaf springs, shocks, match the hubs/wheels to your Jeep, and install a good coupler like the Maxx.
Put your gear in it and camp.
As you get more funds, add stuff. Electronics, a rooftop tent, water, fridge, bottle opener, kitchen. You can use truck bed tool boxes if you want.
Before you know it, you have a trailer. It doesn't have to be fancy to work well.

I checked with the company. Guy said the jeep model will be at jeep dealers later in the summer. Also sent a link to some other info including a good vid on set up. I like the idea but would really like the off road version.

If I had a JK I'd have to have one.. but I wouldn't be able to attach that to my TJ and not feel like it didn't match. I'd like to take that idea and get one built with my same wheels/tires etc. But then, I'd have to have one for the wife's Grand Cherokee too.. then we'd be broke and have to live in them...

Love these designs but for the life of me can not see how they can cost so much.

My Conqueror is about to go up for sale; have a guy looking at it today, in fact.

And I'm starting a Little Guy custom build.

I want a king-sized bed...
