Your rig looks great. And the small toy haulers I see here look great. My question is, when you take the bikes out and move in - is there a gas or oil or tire or grease smell? Or do they vent fairly well while going down the road so that sleeping and/or spending time inside of them is fairly pleasant?

Mine has intake and exhaust vents which I have never even had opened up yet, so far so good.
Thanks.

To me the gas is not a problem, the sweaty boots and helmets and gear stink it up! I leave all my gear(and sons) in the trailer all the time so the trailer always has a bit of a locker room smell to it, the second floor sleeper takes care of that.

I "built" my own......

6X12, full 110v and 12v systems. Plumbing for a sink and small shower stall (which is the unfinished part you can just see in one of the pics) will be next year.....

Woohoo! I'm picking up one of these on Thursday (not my pic, I just borrowed it from the manufacturer's website):



Not as small as some of the ones in this thread, but definitely smaller than most! It's a Northstar 850SC. I'll post more pics once I've got it.

I looked at this today, it's lightweight, in good shape and clean, I'm thinking the price is a bit high, but don't have much to compare it to....................any feed back would be appreciated

I think so! He stores in one of the side cabinets, and makes drinks once you arrive at camp.

Someone on this thread (I think it was Patrick46?) mentioned a meet up on the Oregon Coast for small camp trailers. I tried o do a search for it, but had no luck.

I thought it would be cool to check it out.

It would have to be really nice for that money but yah they go for big money around here. the I have seen the bigger ones go for 4500.. in about the same shape..

It is only a starting place on the price.
