Do you guys cook the fish at camp you catch that day?
We have done so many times. It's one of my favorite meals. And that sounds awesome on the tent trailer idea, have you ever heard of the overlander jeep? The guy has a tent on a fold out roof rack thats like a 8 man tent that pops up top of the jeep

Yeah that's kinda like what I've got in mind for my trailer, I want to have a storage box compartment and then above it have the tent that can fold out and set up high off the ground.

Here are a few that I've looked at that look awesome!

Dude those are awesome. I really like that idea and would love to see yours when it's finished. Just an idea to check into, ide use a pintle hitch instead of a ball, just for the added movement while towing it when offroading to a camp spot. Just an idea to look onto

A pintle Hitch, is that just a ball hitch that has a clamp on it?

On the trailer side it has just a loop and on the car end it has a hook with a clamp on top to keep the loop on.

They are much stronger than a standard ball mount but that's not really needed on a tiny trailer, they do make noise when stoping/ starting because they are loose in between the loop and hitch but that allows them to move all over the place while wheeling but still stays true behind you while on the road.
