Not the small trailer but it work for us.Comfort for the boss is more important then few extra bucks for fuel specially when company pays for the fuel.
When the boss is happy I'm very happy.

I need a trailer to be able to sleep 4 guys (4 beds) for quick weekend cycling training trips. Do any pop-ups do this?

I was just commenting on it neither being little nor light.

But, carry on.

That's pretty cute, but sleeps 6?

They better be really small or pretty friendly.

Never seen one I'd want to sleep with 3 other dudes in, per your last question...

We have a 5 x 10 now and I can either put a bike in there or we can haul camping gear but not both. This one is 7 x 14, although the v nose gives extra room beyond 14'. The KLR sidecar rig will just squeak in the door with one of the pelicans removed. If I start hard installing a bunch of stuff inside then I will lose that option. We have a Springbar tent for car camping that I really like but the AC on the trailer will open up the option of trips to the beach in the summer like we did when we had a travel trailer.

For now I will probably buy some army cots to get us off the floor, paint the interior with a light color for light reflection and maybe some shelving up high on the sides so bikes can still be loaded. We spend most of the time outside anyway and I like an outdoor kitchen. We will probably still put up the tent for most trips. This just gives us a lot more flexibility.

+1 on the cots.

The last time the wife and I took the box trailer camping (last fall OCR), we took so much stuff it kind of turned into an annoyance. An inflatable bed inside the trailer is NOT the way to go (for us, anyway). We will have to put a little more effort into planning next time. Already have one cot, just need to pick up a second.

Have you looked into roll out awnings for the outside? Seems like that would be a handy way to shelter the kitchen.

Here's the rear "bunk house"



I bought it to use on bicycle training weekends and it should work perfect. Five different bunks. Well, two bunks, one queen, a drop down settee, and a fold out sofa.
