    Curious if any of you have checked out the Look trailers? http://www.looktrailers.com/trailers?trailer_id=1108
    The guy that makes these is apparently the son of one of the guys from Haulmark and I have been reading some good things about them but I have not actually talked to anyone that owns one. The prices are great and there is a dealer in Grand Junction so I guess I need to take a run over there one of these days soon to check them out.

    I image a 3500lbs...it will say on the trailer what it is rated for.

    It is 3500. Leaves about 2500lb for the load, which I'll probably be between 1000-1400 usually. Camper stuff plus one or two bikes. Should be adequate.

    Thank you for the compliment, I am taking it out for the first time this weekend so I will grab some pictures of it out in its natural habitat.

    I added a poly tongue box to house the battery, and added a couple of 12v outlets for cell phone charging.

    I have test-towed it around on the highway and city streets, and so far it pulls nice, my little Frontier has no idea its back there.

    So far so good!

    Took the Eriba for a test drag behind the Defender this evening - great match for the truck.

    Man that's a nice trailer setup. I've never seen a trailer like that with a fold out bunk area.

    This thread is awesome, and I have become fascinated with the micro-trailers. I thought of buying a big class C but they are so expensive, and really I'm looking for a surf/camp vehicle. I have a 2013 Golf Wagon 2.5L the book says the tow capacity is 1000lbs (2800lbs in the UK, go figure)

    So I am looking at one of these, functions as a small camper, and utility trailer. Maybe get a small roof top camper to go on top for the kids, and we are good to go.

    I'm out of the 'little' category I think.

    Went to the trailer dealer with 2 grand in my pocket, intending on putting a down payment on a single axle 6x12. Price would have been $3002 out the door for a V-nose with ramp gate, single axle, no brakes. Saw a 7x14 there for $4200 otd with tandem axle, 4 wheel brakes, LED light upgrade, and still a ramp gate. Bought the 7x14, as it was only 600lbs heavier empty and either way I have plenty of truck to pull it. Pick it up tomorrow. :D

    Down side is the $1200 extra was going to be spent on finishing the interior. At this point I'll have enough to insulate it and get it good enough to start using it for what I need. I'll have to save up some more money and finish the build later on. No biggie, the stuff I'll put on hold was more 'nicety' than 'necessity'. Fold down bed, cabinets, that kind of stuff. I can get by without for now.

    Pictures tomorrow, my phone was dead while I was there. Figures.

    I've narrowed it down to 'earth'. Or 'Baltimore'.
    Do you have any other pictures of that trailer, please?

    Thanks guys.
    I built this trailer 16 years ago and just rebuilt it this year, I needed something more for camping but still be able to use it as a utility trailer.
    I am adding brakes to it this weekend, it's only 1280lbs but gets pushy off-road on down hills :eek1 Tepui are great RTT and an awesome company to deal with.
    Camping above Big Sur with the guys from Tepui.
