I think you missed my joke but thats okay.

Seeing as the spare takes up what looks to be about 75% of the trailers capacity, have you maybe considered storing it outside the box so you could put stuffs under the tent?

Powr I sincerely hope your mother recovers from this as well as you and the rest of your family. I couldn't imagine this situation in my own life. We will keep her in our prayers as well.

On a lighter note I'm curious how big of a PITA these short trailers are to maneuver in reverse. I remember the headache of backing in a wave runner trailer into a side yard and imagine these being much worse.

Speaking from experience...it is a PITA. If you keep it slow and steady it's not too bad.

I got the joke! Haha

In all honestly I can't find any other way to mount it elsewhere. I have plenty of storage in the jeep, the trailer carries so equipment but mostly gas and tools. And if course my tent.

Wow, what a horrible thing to have to deal with! I hope your mom comes through unscathed. She was lucky to have you and your Dad right there.

On a related note, not sure I would remember the CPR training I got years ago if I had to go through a similar circumstance. Something like this makes you think about brushing up.
