    Nice looking one. What is the dry weight of it? What do you haul and how much does it weigh?

    Thanks. Somehow the trailer looks shorter. I am guessing its the height that caused the perception :).

    A few pictures with the bike out.

    I built a quick removable table to match the cabinets. After a long day riding, the leather chairs make it a very comfortable place to sit after dinner to watch a movie or read.

    has anyone looked into the A type pop up trailers or even the tear drop trailers? I was looking at Little guys here in SD and they seem pretty cool and very light. The guy quoted me about $5k for the 6 wide. My wife mentioned the A style type pop ups because they rent them on base. Just curious if anyone had looked into them at all and what they think.

    Whats the best way to keep the back end from sagging so much? I pull a couple utility trailers every now and then, some containing 4-5K pounds.

    That's because it's not true, BS. Nobody gets 15mpg towing a (full height / width) Travel Trailer at 60-65 mph, no truck. I do not believe that number, it's made up. Well, unless it's all downhill, steep downhill. It's kd8bao's dream, not much more. ;)

    That is what the scan gauge tells me. Average for the trip. Once I hook up I don't shut down till I park the camper. I am goin out this week for the holiday I will try and get better numbers and method.

    I don't own a Toyota but here is our toy hauler. It is a double door and just wide enough to get a quad in there. We have a klr 650 that goes in there instead. It also has a slide out at the back so gives us a lot more interior room. I also changed out every bulb in and out for LED. We camp with just a generator so electricity is used sparingly. Here is a thread with links on what, where I got the led stuff http://www.bcrvforum.com/led-lighting-t126.html

    I have a 2001 Tacoma, V6, manual, with an add-a-leaf in the rear.

    I also have a Carson Titan 16ft Toy Hauler with torsion bars.

    How do you guys think it will tow?

    Setting up my electric brakes this weekend :)
