i can see the benifeit of having a trailer on the trail, but it seems like it would be more trouble than its worth. thats just my guess, i have never wheeled with a trailer so i dont know for sure.

That is one NICE trailer build up.....I'd like to make a 5x9 for my dirtbikes with gas can holders (maybe a pump too) a battery, air compressor, storage, 31 inch tires to match the jeep, and if I really found some money and time an air suspension so I could kneel it and just ride the bikes on....

I like the idea of the moveable tongue though.....thats smart

Guy with the "blue" TJ uses it to haul all kinds of gear on long trail rides in Canada. He wheels with the wife and 2 kids in the back so there is NO room for tools, parts, and crap like that. Didn't give him much trouble on the trail. He banged it up a bit though.

I like the offroad camper trailers....but I wouldn't want to tow one just to haul parts, etc. build a Jamboree rack and big roof rack, just my opinion.
