I bought this trailer from a member of the local club and had it painted to prevent it from rusting.When the budget permits I will be making some small changes that will work for me like installing a toolbox in the front and maybe some jerry can mounts. When I get my half doors painted to match the Jeep I will also have the trailer painted to match the Jeep. Finally room to pack my camping equipment!!!!!!
Tell me about this tent! Is that top piece part of the tent or another one on top? How did you secure them? I like this set up and would love to know the details.
wel im not sure i really understand the question but , i will tell you what i know,,
the tent is a serengeti trailer tent from myway tents in south africa, imported by fernado at camping labs if you go to the myway site they have several versions and are not quite the same as the models they export ,but are very close , there are some subtle differances,
the tent i have like i said is the trailer tent, it is one big *** tent designed to sit on top of a trailer 56'' to 59'' inces off the ground, the tent has a queen sized mattress up top and i leave the bedding in there when folded up for travel, there is an aluminium ladder to climb up which stores on top of the bed as well,
the ground room is 7'x7' and has a poly floor that reaches up about 6'' to keep out the dirt and rain , 2 doors one eah side and the entire fron wall can be unzipped to open things up in the nice weather, the african model also has a bug screen that is not available for export, but it would not be hard to install one later, this is definatley on my to do list, the tarp that covers the tent is 2 pieces zipped and velcroed , and can be set in a couple of configurations, depending upon your needs or space, as you see i am mostly camped in heavy bush/forest and some places we go space is tight,
the quality of this unit is second to none and i cannot say enough about fernando and campimg labs , his service was excellent !!!
the price 3,000 plus shipping duties taxes, bla bla bla,
worth every penny, this is the last tent i will ever have to buy
set up is easy after you have done it a couple of times , the girlfriend and i can set it , in the dark in about 10 mins, unzip the ruberized/vinyl storage bag ,one big pull opens up the tent, stake out the tarp , put up the ladder and your done,
this is a big tent, sleeps 2 up top and i can putn 3 or 4 kids in the ground room , but when its just the 2 of us we set a table and chairs inside , mostly for when its raining or the bugs get unbearable,
as a base camp it is perfect,
i will look thru the tread again and see what pics i have already posted and see if i can find a couple of better ones for you
I've wanted to say that for about 12 years now
This trailer spent many years in Idaho, then was purchased in 1985 by the man I just bought it from, in Paradise, CA. Both places are extremely dry. The rust is ONLY on the surface.
This thing is in near perfect condition. It has the pintle (under a bolt-on ball mount), the kick-stand, the trailer brake, and fuel can mounts on both sides and the original data plate. You can see that there are no dents at all. The bearings are new and have just been packed. The tires are new General Grabbers. I am so stoked.
Here are the pics he e-mailed me. It's now sitting in my garage, so I Will snap some pics soon. I am kicking around the idea of sandblasting it and painting it to match my TJ with bedliner inside.

Hello all Im new here and thought I would post up some picks of my trailer ive been working on. Its and old 47' bantam that I ran accross last year. I did a spring over on it. Stripped most of it down top and bottom to metal and sealed the bottom and t=inside of tub with rattle can bed liner, outside I did with cheap walmart paint for now until I deside what colors to go with. Mounted a couple rancho 9000 shocks( much needed ) and some 31x12.5 bfg at's 33' tires on it in photo's. This thing just got back from a hunting trip with me and one of my boys, we logged 350+ dirt road mile up in northern nevada and it did great. Just thought I would share.
