For that price to rent, I could have MADE money when I was in the oilfield. My co gave me $75 per day to supply a tt, I could have pocketed the difference at those rates.

I cannot imagine dragging that around with a stock Jeep 3.8.

I spoke with the owner of VRV this morning.towing that trailer with a stock 3.8 is easy. You aren't going to tow it at 90 like the idiots coming back from the nascar races do with their 30 foot campers and chevy suburbans, but a wrangler will pull it just fine.

My concern was stopping. He said the trailer comes with brakes on both axles. considering that I have no worries about pulling this setup at all. Complete with a full LP package, a/c, and a wet bath it will weigh 2200 lbs. in a 6 X 14. That is what I'm going to consider buying. I'll make a decision when/if my house sells.

saw this on the north side of Elkhart county boonies.




For sale. Only about a mile a way from a salvage place that would have everything to complete it,including a/c.

Could be done for about 2500.00 and a little time.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Awesome set up. That is exactly what I envisioned when I started this thread.

This is on the Orlando CL. I'd love a trailer to pull behind the Taco, but the RT or the future GS must come along as well. I'd be curious to see how this tows with a load that far in front of the axels.

http://orlando.craigslist.org/rvs/2254645031.html

Trailer was extended by AmeraTrail Trailer, 35" to haul my Kawasaki 750 Brute Force with 30" tires.

I wonder if for a single bike if that platform and extension could be about half of what it is?

They are full width trailers too, that seems to make a big difference in giving you the feeling of a larger space than you would think. I thought they were awesome! Very utilitarian, looks as if it is easy to clean, great for dirt bikers and dogs!

We liked them so much we sold our Forest River Rpod and I have been talking with Tom at livin lite he's building us one of his VRV toyhaulers.
Not exactly cheap but they are ALL aluminum they have no wood to rot, that's worth a lot in my book.
I don't want to seem like I'm pushin' their stuff, I just think they have some nice trailers.
Thanks for the info! I don't mind the utilitarian look at all, specially if you don't end up with mold and mildew. I am eying the 13 footer too as a private bath/shower is nice in questionable area's/campings.
Unfortunately the nearest dealer is 170 miles away..

Not so little/light.

It was all Bonnie Abbzug's idea.
