Yeah, I kinda remember hearing about that in the early 80's, I think there was a recall on that axle..

I have one of these, www.sylvansport.com called a Go trailer. I can haul a bike or four wheeler. It can be used as a utility trailer. Kelty tent pops out of the clam shell. While moving camp means packing everything, I can unhook and drive and leave the camp at camp.

Dusty (DTrain) from this site has one. Brought it to Fourmile Freakout last year. Great concept. Putting it up or taking it down only took about ten minutes. Looked very well made and plenty comfy. Intriguing is the word. A real hybrid concept.

If it is a quick and easy set up (and take down), I don't see too much problem. What I see as a problem is having to unload the trailer each time you want to set up.

I could see using an Adventure Trailer concept, except mounting the "rooftop" tent high enough to fit a bike and other gear underneath.

Or you could just convert one of these



in a similar manner for much less money (I would think). I considered it with the one I have, but it's got a bent tongue from a mishap offroad years ago, and I never got around to fixing it. Plus, the M416 has a swiveling lunette hitch, so it's much more capable when the roads are really primitive: I've towed mine in to the Doll House in the Maze, for example, without problem.

You're getting the trailer for 9 Large.

The accessory you're referring to costs many, many, times more than that.
