Jeep camping trailer

Has anyone actually seen these Jeep trailers? If so, what do you think of them?

I've never seen one. But at $10,000 and $12,000 for the Trail Edition and Extreme Edition respectively, I don't expect I will anytime soon.

I'll just buy the most badass tent I can find. Then I'll think of something else to do with the remaining $9,500-$11,500.

Cost was my main concern, and I agree with you Jeff. The old Coleman tent is looking just fine!

they are pretty much a pop up camper with a heavier duty suspension, larger tires, and a beefed up hitch. my hubby plans on making our pop up into something like that for almost nothing. we have the pop up, wheels and tires off one of the jeeps, and the old springs off of our trailer. all he needs is new shackle mounts and a pintle style hitch.

Instead of the Pintle-Lunette type, which is the strongest, military type, but--NOISY

Look into the "Max-Coupler" or "Lock & Roll" they are both full multi directional, but strong and QUIET !!

The pintle ring, is a good recovery attachment for the hitch's. but noisy for towing !!

Personally, I like the more utilitarian nature if this brand - no need for most popup amenities just to sleep and hang out if it's raining, and I don't like cooking inside anyway. Plus is all aluminum so it won't rot like others. They're worth a look for sure.
