Next would be lights, maybe some sort of outdoor galley and an awning.



It looks like it was originally a Trailerboat shell. There should be a boat on the roof!

Agreed. It looks like it's for one "fully dressed" Harley or Goldwing.

I'll be damned. I saw one of them at a car show once. I didn't make the connection. That's gotta be saved by someone!!!

I own this thing... super light weight and with it's large tires and pointed nose makes it great for towing and tracks great. I have it for sale but if I still have it next spring I may modify it for camping. It's 4x8...

I would turn that into a tiny camper in a skinny minute. A couple of windows, a roof top vent, wire in some 110 and 12v and a 2 doors and you would have the perfect rigid tent...

What are you asking for it?

Kewl, and they are still sold. If I was closer I would look you up.

I was looking at the others - the ones that look like a porta-potty on its side, and they are not tall enough for a dirt bike. My dirt bikes are 48" at the handlebars and the trailer is 41" inside (at least at the opening anyway).

I also found this:



http://chariotmanufacturing.com/brow...-shuttle-11-0/

Between the need to either haul a trailer or put a bike in the vehicle, and the need for something a little better in the snow than a lightweight AWD version of a 2WD vehicle, I decided I would want either a Toyota compact pickup or a Jeep. I.E., something a bit more heavy duty.

I had six inches of snow when I got up this morning so I took the truck to work instead of the Bimmer. Would have never made it with the car. Driving a 1+ ton flatbed truck was exactly fun, but being a 4x4 it did well in the snow. Problem is that the snow only lasted for two miles until I got to the pavement and then the truck was just a slow old beast.

Need to get something smaller and more of a daily driver. I was hoping that I wouldn't have any snow and then I got it dumped on me. May get more tonight.

Thanks, I'm asking 1800, cost just over 3000 for a new one in Edmonton Alberta where they're still made. Link here

There common use is small rvs and mobile offices for the larger ones, I believe they go to 26ft.

If you're going to tow something like that behind ya, why not just tow a pop up or regular camper trailer? LOL

It's way fancier.
