No such luck. The only way to have the interior lights on is sending power to the taillight pin, which means all the marker lights and tail lights are on as well.

I'd like to have it easily removable since the trailer barely fits in my garage as is. ;)

So a permanent roof rack would make the trailer too talk

Couldn't hardly tell I was pulling it.

Sweet. I like that it has the rear hitch on it, for a bicycle rack or a gear tray.

I finished the power pack yesterday. It works well and the lip of the cargo box allows a cord to be run in while allowing the lid to be shut, so I just need to run a short cord to the side of the trailer for onboard power.



I also attached a tv wall bracket to the front of the trailer. I was intending this to be for a laptop, but I found a little tv/dvd at a yard sale last week for 10$.

Paul04TJ,

I always liked the Little Guy. But, wondered how hot and stuffy it will be inside during July and August camping. I know there is a roof vent. Does that help much? What do you think?

We just brought it home yesterday.
But the roof vent is powered, 3 spd, reversible and the windows slide open from the bottom up.
It had a pretty decent draw of air moving through it.

Worse case, they do make an AC/heater unit that sits on the front cargo rack.

I cant imagine you could lay down in that thing. can the average person (lets say 6') lay down all the way without hitting head or foot?

Looks good. I'm a bit jealous. What are the specs on the LJ? Tire size, gear ratio, auto or stick? This info may be somewhere in the thread but I don't want to search through 6 pages.

How did it tow? If I was you I'd put a trans temp gauge and external trans cooler in it.
