great idea.....i am going to steal this.
Feel free. It was given to me by another inmate. Now I still use my wheel choke and most of the time I carry a pop up bike stand. So I just draw the bike down onto it so nothing sliding around.
Started with open floor plan.
She looks like a nice partner to go play with too! https://advrider.com/f/threads/bike...t-other-g-f-b-f.484912/page-601#post-38949163
Nice setup, very nice home also. Nice touch to add length to the tongue, sure makes a difference.
I would have to alter that setup also but these things are usually a work in progress.
Yer not takin a couple of the gummint's trees home, are ya?
No way .. Greenhouse purchase...
Well after trying the rtt thing for a bit, i have to say simplicity is by far the thing i enjoy the most. Ground tent, self inflating pad, and a heater in the cold.
The Weeroll rig is designed to have the AC unit easily removable. When travelling it's out of the slot and a latching plate is in its place.
Thor Outlaw 29H, garage holds 2 bikes. Added 4" suspension lift, 2" bigger AT tires, 400W solar.
Well, since the Thor Outlaw is a little out of my price range, I tow my XR650L around the Northeast and Canada with my trusty '06 Toyota Matrix XR. It has a 1500 lb. towing capacity and I can sleep very comfortably in the back with the passenger seat folded forward. That leaves room on the other side for riding gear. Yeah, it only sleeps one and you can't sit up in it but I still get 30 mpg while towing.
Roaming Rally, Ontario, Canada, May '19
Mini van might be a more comfortable option, I couldn't stand getting dressed while laying down.
Any concerns levelling the rv like this?
I thought about getting a mini-van but then I'd have to live with a massive people hauler during the other 95% of the year when I'm not hauling a bike to a rally. Can't afford to have a dedicated toy hauler/camper. There are compromises with this little setup but it works for me.
I think the matrix has a sun roof....
I'd probably stand under the hatch to get dressed. A couple old window curtains and a couple magnets to hang them for privacy.
There are tent attachments for hatchbacks that take advantage of the open rear hatch. That might be next. A vestibule of sorts. But I'd need to unhook the trailer. Nice to just load the bike and go without having to break down a tent.
I hung a single curtain from the hatch of my minivan. It would cover the side and 1/2 the back. I'd hang whatever side I wanted the privacy. Couple magnets sewn in the ends made for quick haul down. I could leave the trailer attached.
What would or could be the concerns?
Not mine in the picture...but I've done similar or higher, the longer the rig the worse it gets and mine is 44 ft.
What I don't get is the people that block their wheels when they have the weight on jacks. It's level and the weight on the jacks what would cause it to roll? 40 years of camping on unlevel ground and never had one roll. Once the weight is on the jacks, which it is when you unhook a TT or 5er it ain't gona roll. A MH if the front jacks are down while the rig is in park, it ain't gona roll, so then you can lower the rear jacks.
One reason i got out of the rtt and back into a ground tent. Got tired of packing up.
