I think there was a company that sold them for basically half that.


I just made my own with my brother.

That's awesome looking
Thanks, it has AC hidden under the "spare" tire, a tv, a shovel, an axe, some rope, and a spot to hang more off if I can think of something. I'm currently thinking a hi lift jack some water and lights.

What length/width trailer you build on?
It was an old 11 foot "Little Gem" camper made in the 1960s. Back then it was 11' x 6' with the body going over and covering the tires and wheels. Every board on it was rotten and every peice of aluminum was bent. The frame itself was only 4x8 with some extensions coming out from there.

The back extensions just fell off while I was taking the old floor out. I use two extensions on each side to hold the saddle boxes and one in the back to put the jack stands to keep it from rockin all night.

The whole thing cost less than 2500 to build

very cool I have looked at the Mopar ones and can not justify $10.000-12.000 they are a little junky IMO and not much there for the money My brother built one for his TJ and we are going to buy a 6x8 and build one for Me.

I have a Viking pop up camper, it's a 10 foot box with a 2' cargo area for storage up front. I am planning on doing an axle flip on it to gain about 4" of ground clearance and then get bigger tires for it. It does fine going down dirt roads and I have taken it down a few 2 tracks to get to camp sites. Nothing to crazy though. If I want to get crazy I will do that after camp has been setup.

Anyone had any experience with one of these? Looks pretty neat!
They also have one similar to the Jeep model for about half the price and it has air conditioning where as the Mopar version does not. It only weighs 636 Lbs. and can carry 500 more.
