Camping with my Jeep themed trailer!!!

We pull an older Coleman popup that weighs in at 300# less, sleeps 6, has plenty of storage and two pullout double size beds...this little guy would be nice if it weighed in at less than 1000#!

Little Guy
 
true it does weigh a little more and that was surprising to me too, but they said it weighs more because of the features. It is on a 2x3 steel frame with a skid plate covering the bottom and huge jeep themed tires protected by straight fenders. It does weigh a little more, but I wanted something to go along with my Jeep and something that could go over anything. I went through their corporate headquarters and talked to Dillon, he gave me a good deal and walked me through the whole process. This is their office number, ask for him and he can help you out...877-545-4897

Is YOUR name Dillon?

dman19 04-15-2011 01:21 AM

no, my name is John. My username on here is dman but that's because my last name starts with a D so friends just gave me the nickname dman.

haha, I was going to ask the same thing. Looks nice but for me 1500# is a bit much to pull behind my Jeep

Gotcha. Welcome to the forum, dman. :thumb:

dman19 04-15-2011 12:04 PM

Yeah it weighs more than most but I got the smaller one that weighs 1,400. It was worth it for me, but I think I'm just obsessed with camping :cool:

Yea, that's pretty sweet. Be good for those that like to travel old access roads etc...

Chewy1959 04-15-2011 09:14 PM

I can understand, I kind of lean towards the pup tent and sleeping bags...welcome to the forum

How long is the inside bed? I'm 6'4" and haven't found one for sale here in Albuquerque to physically look at. Everything I have found online I have liked and I'm very curious about teardrops. Is that model fairly roomy inside and how to you like the kitchen set up?

Looked it up on the comp and it looks pretty roomy. We have those mattresses for the kids and I fit on those just fine. Cool

wat3rdog 11-11-2012 04:15 PM

Pics?

I live in Indiana and went to a dealer in Kokomo to see one in person. I thought they might be a little claustrophobic . I am only 6'0" , but there was quite a bit of room inside. It is not like trailering more like having a tent that is already set up with a galley in the back. You can get a built in stove , sink, and fridge if you want. They also offer A/C, but I didn't see one with that option. They did have one with a sound system DVD player and TV built in. I am 64 years old and it sounds like a good idea to have a comfortable queen sized bed on a level waterproof platform for sleeping at the campground. True I will miss the acorn under my sleeping bag in my tent, but I could learn to deal with that after a good nights sleep. :-). I haven't spent the money to buy one yet, still considering it. Has an exhaust fan in ceiling that will help stop condensation, a problem with high humidity here in Indiana. It will also fit in my garage so I wouldn't have to pay to have it stored. Still a lot of money for a camping accessory . I was told that I could get one that would be color matched to my Jeep (that should be getting to the dealer soon). That would make it a Jeep accessory, and you can't spend too much for Jeep accessories.... :-)

Nice. I've been doing a lot of research but no one around Albuquerque seems to have one that I can look at. I like the idea since I'm tired of my pop up. I want to pull into a spot and done. I figure that if camping I only want to go inside to sleep or get out of the weather. I also like the idea of a road trip with no hotels and a trailer for gear.

How much roughly?

wat3rdog 12-21-2012 08:22 PM

http://www.golittleguy.com/teardrops/
$6k range give or take

wat3rdog 02-25-2013 11:39 AM

It's been a bit but after looking at the little guy in person my wife and I have set a goal to buy a 6 wide rough rider for just under $10k. They can build it for 35" tires for no extra charge. They will do what ever you like for a true custom build.
