You have a tent on a cot. I have a cleaning table for my tools on my bed.
Nice little trailer. A bit rich for me.
I have always opted for old motor homes so I can tote my canoes and motorcycles around.
We traveled 6500 miles last year with this old Chevy.
I've always wanted an old Toyota dolphin motorhome in good condition. I'd convert it to 4wd and have some fun. Since it rains over 100 inches a year where I live almost all trailers and RVs have water damage and mold.
Yea, til the scorpions come out and bite your face!
Chris! That's a shat ton of miles. Nice job! Where did you go?
Two young kids and a wife in the car, three hours is about my limit til they drive me nuts.....
In Reno, within city? Nah, more chance with rattlesnakes. I literally live near a breeding ground for rattlesnakes. The hill is called rattlesnake mountain
I like these trailers, saw an almost new one for a little under 10k. Super light too, can be pulled with a subaru outback if u want... also they have offroad ones with big suspension
The soft tent trailers are cool but not for year round' and if they get wet you have to worry about mildew/drying it out everytime. Almost got one then realized that issue.
Roof tents are the same thing, not the best if your going to get it wet
To avoid those issues with mildew and etc, don't go cheap on buying one, and prep it properly for storage. I really want one. I was reading somewhere that the Australian manufacturer of roof tent is one the best one to get. Not sure tho.
My kids have flown the coop so it is just my favorite girlfriend and I traveling.
The bulk of my travel last year took us from Chicago to Polson Montana to visit my friend who is an operator at the Kerr hydroelectric dam on the Flathead reservation (wore my Tesla t shirt in honor of Nikola ). On the way major stops included Yellowstone, Badlands, Sturgis bike week, and the Crow Nation Pow Wow.
We took off nearly every weekend for short trips. Indiana Dunes National Park, Starved Rock State Park several times, Biker events like the Bean Blossom Boogie in Indiana and The Iowa Redneck Revival. Also a few trips to canoe on the Wisconsin River.
I also took it down to Macomb Il. for a week when my darling daughter made me a grandpa!
This year heading East to the Smoky Mountains and Washington DC to visit my son.
Favorite girlfriend? How many do you have?
We bought this over in Saiger land last summer (Minnesota).
Cascadia vehicle tents in Bend, Or makes what many consider to be the best. Really high quality breathable fabric. Thats really the issue though is you cant store them wet, so they arent good for camping in the wetter months in the PNW. Your fine if its wet for a few days before you get a chance to dry it out somewhere or have a big shop to do it.
I just like the hard pop up trailers because you can camp in the winter or whenever
It's got flipping floor vents!
