Seems like a real PITA to me. I wonder what the dishes in the cupboards and the stuff in the refrigerator looks like by the time he gets to camp, where ever that is.

didn't see any tire pressure changes, but !!

That looks like a tough off-road trailer-

Looks like he had a Max-coupler type hitch-

LOL. I had an experience late one night towing my pop-up tent trailer to a big 4x4 event last year that I never want to experience again.

I normally take the same usual dirt desert road to this event I have done 4-5 years in a row but no, my then-new GPS suggested there was a better route and showed it on the map. It was 10pm but ok. So I stayed on the paved road for another mile and then took the turn off it recommended. 1/2 mile in, I can see the lights of where I'm heading about 2 miles off. Great I'm thinking, this was a good decision and at that point, I'm thinking how cool the GPS was to give me a better way to the camp site.

Well in another hundred yards, it all went to hell. Suddenly I'm frigging ROCK CRAWLING in 4Lo with my Fleetwood tent trailer behind me. The trail has closed in around me so I couldn't back up and turn around. So I press on and after the trip from hell, about two hours later to go the next two miles, I pull into the camp site totally worn out and wondering what damage I had done. The rear bumper hitch had bent the bumper from the extreme angles the trailer had put on the ball, and the rear of my tent trailer had its rear fiberglass covering torn partially away from the rocks it was being dragged over.

That "trail" was actually one of the easier but still difficult rock crawling trails for the next day's events.

I'll never quite trust my GPS as blindly as I once did.

Great story! A GPS can be helpful, but it also can screw you up on the best route to take!
