Hmm.. that would work. That would be pretty easy actually with one of those pickup bed trailers... Only thing is I think a trailer made from a pickup bed is pretty redneck lookin'. It would be pretty damn functional though.
wouldnt be too red neck looking as long as you cleaned it up, painted the frame, lifted it, punt 33's to match (and a spare off the back just like the jeep) and welded/filled/painted tailgate with a frenched in liscense plate and matching bushwackers.....hell it might even be better that these other ones......course by the time you fixed it up like that youd have more money in it then a brand new tentrax...

That's pretty sweet man. Do you have a guess on how much that weighs? I've been looking at little popups and other things, but building my own sounds so much more fun... And a hard roof might be more appealing to the woman.
So other than the "pop-up" trailers anyone have any ideas as how to sleep a family of 4? The local JEEP clubs claim to fame was back in the EARLY 60s they converted the old military trailers so that way they could always take camp with them.... never had a "base camp" put electric brakes on them a pintle hook & went everywhere, worked great for two or 3 folks all over the S.W. but I've got two kids & a XJ so I'm lean'n towards modifying a MJ bed with platforms that fold into the bed & then fold out and are supported by the side of the bed & legs...... have a local guy make up the tent...... I want a go just about anywhere trailer so I'm try'n to stay away from the "pop-ups". I guess I want too much......naaaaah!

We tow a Coleman Sedona behind our jeep.
I still need to do a spring over on it so it tows a little better behind our lifted jeep.
The hardest thing about towing, was finding a rear bumper that is rated for towing. Most are not. We ended up in getting the Warn rock crawler. It is rated for recovery, but not for towing.
Our camper is about at our max towing weight also. We have not connected the electric brakes on it, but will do that this summer for running some of the hills around here that we have to climb in and out of our wheeling spots.
I think California has a law about trailer brakes, or something about that. I need to research it some though.
We are not speeding down the road with our camper behind us now either. We are usually running with the truckers and other big campers in the slow lane here. Especially on the hills.
But it is nice having the camper to come back to after a day of wheeling. Easy to sit down and relax in. Big soft bed without any rocks to lay on.
The only disadvantage though, we can not drag it through Dusy with us though. We would have to break out our old tent for that trail.
was looking and found a jeep tj trailer that was made out offa tj cut off at the firewall and the bed was flat and the windows in the full doors were still working even had a hard top and it had a spare tire mounted on back the best part was it had a strait trailer axel and could be mover by on person with the little wheel on front Looked neat pulled by the same color jeep wiah I had a picture Think I would sell my pop up for something like that
