Came over to catch up on my JK reading and ran across alot of guys with tent trailers. Well I got tired of setting up so decided to build something that all I needed to do was open the door and go to sleep. Here is my build thread on it.
ealizing that an offroad Teardrop will be to small for the 3 of us I have decided to take it a bit further. One day I will build one of my own designs but this will get it going much quicker and should work till i have more time. I got a 5x10 Enclosed trailer. Plan is to build a bunk for the little one and the wife and I will sleep on the floor.
With this I can camp anywhere. It will just look like a Jeep parked with a cargo trailer attached to it.
Started insulating the roof. I should be in the r10 or higher range on the roof.
Got the front cabinets welded up. I am starting the Vent install on the roof. I got a Fan-Tastic vent for the top. It moves alot of air and can go in or out so it should keep it nice and cool. Also looks like I am going to have 32 gallons of water if I can make the containers fit.
Holes drilled in the top as a thunder is playing in the back ground:
Bigger Hole in the top.
She is in and right siliconed up. It poured and hour after I got it in so I got a good leak test done. no leaks!!!!
Thanks for the compliments. And yes, I am thinking about the next build already and thinking maybe a slide in drawer for the Squirt.
No, I have not weighed it. It weighed 900 before the build started. I am pretty sure I am under 2000 lbs. loaded without water. My 32 gallons full would weigh about 267 pounds alone. Still very light. The Jeep pulls is great. Just got back from a long weekend trip and another 750 miles.
