I've taken up ATVing in the last 2 years so I don't use the camper as much because I can't pull both the ATV trailer and the camper trailer.

The trick is to bolt this ON the ATV trailer!

I see a bike rail where the tongue tool box sits and a car toppable 12-14' aluminum boat or kayaks on the roof racks!

To me, THAT makes sense! Outfit the interior as you wish, from sparse to luxurious. Add an ez-up to erect off the back and pull out some folding chairs. Lots of potential there.

The base is 4x6 foot. I haven't figured out how I could position it on a 6x12 trailer and have room for two ATVs.

The trick is you put a hitch on back of the 6x12 trailer and pull 'em both... train style.

Elevate it on a frame? Use it up there or drop it after unloading? Could you tilt it on one side, then drop it to the floor to use after the ATVs are off? What would it weigh stripped of the trailer frame?

Mount it at 45 degrees, point a corner into the V of the trailer nose maybe?

10 X 6 isn't enough room for 2 ATVs? Heck, I seen (and have also myself have packed) ATVs almost standing straight up on their rear wheels/racks.

It is conversations like this that made me start this thread. I enjoy hearing people's experiences and thoughts on the various little, light stuff.

How long to set up/break down? Did you do the canvas work, or completely outsource it?

Well, the ONLY problem with those trailers in my mind is that while they are heavy duty as all get out, they also are pretty heavy empty. Not that it's a prohibitive thing if your tow vehicle is robust - the large tires make it very easy to take on lesser roads and if you were to go to a pintle hitch...

Nothing better for hauling big loads of firewood though. Or rocks.

Plus those truck tires are pretty cheap compared to trailer tires and last a lot longer. And the wheel bearings will last a hundred thousand miles

I think I've convinced myself that I need to take a ride up and check out this monster

This was hanging out at the Fabshotz last time I was there, the dood was having a new axle installed on it................yeah the axle will be narrowed



A bit messy but, cool in side..........this shot was taken from the side door, didn't get to see what was in the very back back as it was locked.
