That is a nice camper, Kevin. It looks like it would be a lot of fun in on the trails, I like how functional it looks. Nice find. Looks like you have some great country to look at as well.

Nice Kevin,
Looks like that thing has some good ground clearence and a good amount of storage... looks like it is pretty close on the length, but big enough you could sleep at an angle if needed...

Cheers,
Neil.

Duude that is a totally awesome find!

I wondered about the PVC pipe also, great idea.. Nice storage too.

Now you have your sleeping quarters for your next drive south of the border!

Kevin that looks COOL!

It may just be the pics but it looks like you may need to extend the tongue a bit to be able to "jack-knife" it on the trails.

I dig it. I think a hardsided sleeping compartment has some real advantages over a RTT.

.
I agree would be a lot more user friendly if you could open the back while the trailer is hooked up too... if you extend the tongue move it far enough away that you can open your tire swing-out.

Yes the tounge is a little short this will the first mod, what would be an ideal length for it? Also should I switch out the hitch on the tounge?
