Well I have bitten the bullet. I have ordered a trailer for my JK.
Yeah I know it is a 4-door and I *should* have all the room in the world, especially when compared to a CJ. But I don't. I am a card carrying member of the Cabela's club and have a monster dome tent, two big ass'd cots with the accompanying self inflating air mattresses plus some big sleeping bags and take just Debbie and the dog with me on the trail.
But it's all worth it. Debbie doesn't really like camping until I made her really comfortable and didn't want to buy a travel trailer. So now she likes it but since the dog gets the entire back seat everything has to fit in the back, back and there just is barely enough room. Oh and I have a 98 quart cooler that keeps ice for 14 days!
So needless to say I had to do something and since lightening the load probably wasn't going to be the option..... I have ordered a little trailer.
I looked around. I did some shopping. I found some good deals and some nice people. I also found that a ancient rusted out military trailer must be made of gold.
I checked the usual suspects. But ended up going here
. Primarily because it isn't a tent trailer and the tail gate comes down for loading (quads and such). It doesn't have a hard top but that should help keep it light. The other advantage was that they are nearby for pick up.

seems like a nice guy that knows what he is doing. I'll post up some pics as I get them during the construction.
