Good call. They're awesome to us here. Something about being in the Pac NW or something as they have a couple of pretty awesome ones around here that has an absurd amount of outdoor stuff with minimal rental fees

whut rbmgf7 sed... also known as "Money, Wealth & Riches" essentially a recreational rental joint... everything from horses to sea-doos - used to rent a rowboat and a camper (little scamp) on the weekends from them back in the day. They auction off assets once they've reached their life expectancy (still good chit though) and buy newer to continue the mission.

If you're interested, you could also check out DRMO auctions... linky same idea, different organization...

It's great to hear about MWR. Sounds like a great program; one that's well deserved.

I never thought I'd like a pop-up (the snobbery is humerous only in that I can't afford any kind of camper - but ), but I find myself very attacted to the Coleman Evolution (E3). http://www.colemantrailers.com/e3

Nice idea in theory. Not sure I would want to put a 500# motorcycle or ATV on the tongue of the trailer though...

Not on the tongue, but on the main bed of the trailer. Seems to be balanced out for this.

The main problem I see with those is one more step to set up. Every time you want to set up, you have to clear the load deck. Would be a real headache on a multi-stop trip.

At an RV show a year ago we saw a few small, hard sided, camper trailers (like 16' regular campers with aluminum sides) that had a load deck out front. I've been trying to find one online to post in this thread but couldn't find it. Seemed like the best of both worlds, but I don't have any idea what the weight would be on something like that.

Only if you needed to use both of the fold out "bedrooms." If you were only sleeping in one of the "bedrooms" you could leave the other folded in and not have that problem - but you'd still have to set up the camper. I just really like the roominess and functionality of the rig for its weight and size. "Tip out" for the dining area/table, toilet and shower, two "bedrooms" and the ability to haul two bikes or an atv. Seems very well thought out to me.

OK, I found one of what I was talking about. This one is on CL - I'm not selling it, and don't know who is, but here you can see what they look like and what they're selling for.

This is probably more than your little truck is able to pull, but it's a very cool solution to a common problem.

Thanks!

I am not sure a 30ft trailer is still a little/light camper...

Don't the 'bedrooms' slide out ? If they do, then you would need to slide both out I would think to use the camper
