    They show two bikes in it, but at 48" width, it is going to be really tight. I have an enclosed trailer with 56" interior width (5' exterior) and two WR250R's just barely fit, and they have to be staggered to fit, which means I'm using almost all of my 8' length. That trailer is only 7' long which means staggering won't be an option.

    But for someone else it may be an option. It's also very compact and won't take up much space when you're not using it, and it can be towed with a relatively small vehicle. Different strokes as they say.

    I agree...they are overpriced. One of the main selling points for me was the fact that I can keep it inside my garage and even raise the roof once in. +O4kxneVTe+KUkvYaS2kWg.jpg

    I've been working out of my Lance 1475 for 2 months. The wife came to visit for 4 days and no longer is interesting in a Tiny House.... :photog

    I considered an attached canopy but went with a Coleman Screened Canopy Tent instead. It's easy to set up and the screens are optional for those buggy nights. It's more versatile too because you can set it up anywhere including over the picnic table.

    Looks good, the awning checks a few other boxes for me. We vend out of this little camper sometimes, so the awning is ideal for that, setup a table under the canopy, people can come n go easily. The canopy doesn't require any ground attachment which is a huge bonus when parked on rocks or asphalt! We also have a popup shower/toilet enclosure that is outside, sure would be nice to be able to reach that without getting wet when it's raining.

    Here’s our retirement rig still tweaking it. AC/TV/DVD 8”memory foam mattress,10 gallon road shower. Small ceramic space heater. Honda 2200 gen fits in box for boondocking. Fridge in Lexus. Still deciding on shower stall to fit next to small awning. Not the most hardcore off-road trailer but a great base camp. Bobby from New Wave Trailer in South Georgia builds them one at a time. Ours has led lights,battery and solar also. Even with all my upgrades I’m in about 10k. Top pic is from our MABDR trip. These pull super easy hardly know it’s there. Max couplers are awesome hitches.Trailer weighed 1780lbs loaded for last trip. Can pull thur fast food drive thur’s or cross creeks. Bobby makes 5x8’s 5x9’s 5x10’s depending on your size. Wife and I fit in 5x8 with short queen mattress. Wife not a fan of motorcycle travel and honestly I prefer to ride solo but both of us love back country travel and nature. Hopefully this thing will see many National parks in the future. Retirement begins Jan.2020
