    Ive always been interested in camping and trailers(way before we bought our TACO) and did a lot of research on those and came across the Jumping jack trailer and i think Lifetime makes one similar as well, do any of you guys own one of those or any type on pull behind camper trailer? what do you think of it and pictures would be great:D

    Went back and forth with this for a couple of years. Considered all my options and when it came to pop-ups they always seemed too expensive when compared to a standard trailers. Ultimately I ended up buying a used Mini Wini Class C (2003 24' Ford Chassis 6.8) and love it. However, if I were to go with the pull behind option, I'd definitely go with a trailer rather than a pop-up. They are too pricy for what you get, space is limited, they’re not as safe (break into easy), bathroom and shower situation sucks, storage is minimal, they don't stay as warm/cool, and layout is always very basic; more options with trailers. About the only plus IMO with the pop-up was the weight, but they can also get pretty heavy as well.

    Oh yeah, capacities are limited too with pop-ups (LP, Water, Black, Gray tanks). If you enjoy dry camping over hook ups, you want to consider this as well.

    I seen a lot of offroading type and Jeep has a very cool tent trailer, small and compact but durable(Jeep made) but we are light campers and go once in a while type of deal so the Jumping jack trailers seemed to be the one, cause you can take the tent part out and use the trailer as a trailer, or park my quads on top the trailer with the tent part under the quad, its a pretty cool idea check it out here http://www.jumpingjacktrailers.com/ tell me what you guys think.
