A Cool Idea For Camping and Bringing the MC

http://http://www.competitiveedgepro...FbFxQgodnQ0Avg

I found this and like the idea although the price seems high. It's their idea so you have to pay for it if you want one. I routinely motorcycle camp but wife will have no part of it but likes to ride on day trips. The Wrangler is where we agree and will camp. I miss the motorcycle or other toys when we go out. This seems to work for hauling debris from the yard as well as being a great camping alternative. Has anyone had one of these and what do you think?

Buy a trailer from Tractor Supply for $1000 and the Colman 8 man Instant tent for $200 and you will have as good, if not better setup.

You can buy an enclosed trailer to haul your bike in and then sleep in for that price. I bought one that was converted to a camper with A/C, cabinets, appliances. The beds fold up to haul the bike. You could just add camping equipment as you go.

Irish, I have been toying with that idea as I have an old Pace 10x6. Was thinking about going to a tent/awning maker and have a tent extension made to attach to the trailer. An area big enough to store bicycles and motorcycles or just cook and lounge under. Walmart sells small cheap air conditioners and wiring a 120 plug or two is no big deal. We have a queen air mattress. The trailer is 1000lbs and rated to haul 1000lbs. The frontal area is 42 sqft, approximately 17 sqft over Jeep's recommended 25 sqft. Gas mileage would suffer as well as possible handling issues. Still thinking about this project or the Lifetime Trailer. Thanks for the input.

I bought some used 10a rims from a nice guy in Spokane who builds custom built Jeep trailers. Just enough room for 2 to sleep in, kitchen opens up in the back and ramps allow you to load two dirt bikes up on the roof of the trailer. What made these unique was that they were built to be towed by a Jeep as far as weight and height, had axle-less trailer suspension so there was great ground clearance. No idea of the price, wish I'd snapped a couple pics of the setup.
