If I decide I need to get a reverse mortgage on it, I'll get ahold of you.

Haha this made me laugh

How what ? With the cam door locks and no windows it certainly is more secure than the pot metal door locks on a regular camper.

Man, I'd have loved to hear your opinion if we would have gone with what we were originally thinking about... a 4x8 teardrop.

The beauty is, you don't HAVE to set up the tent to just pull over and go to bed like you do with a pop up.

Those are kind of cool. I thought about soing something like that but with the ability to still stick a few motorcycles in it. I was thinking a smaller v nose with the galley in front so you can prepare food inside during the rain and have access to that rear door.

Either way, good score on the trailer. Like WhiteRhino said though, do something with that door so you dont get locked in! Id brt you could probably swap out the latch to a camper style semi easily.

EDIT; It already had the camper style latches so why not remove the cam latch all together?

Why not cut out the back bar on the LJ and fab up some motorcycle ramp carrier thingy?

Cool little trailer.

I'll just stick the padlock in the cam lock when we're inside making it unusable.
