    Nice setup! I've been scanning my local Costco for that gas fire pit ever since you first posted it, but no luck. I finally did locate it just a few days ago at a local ranch supply store so at least I finally found it.

    Traded in the tent for a teardrop and I love it. Have only been out in it once so far - but this weekend and several more this summer will get some time in the trailer and miles on the truck!! It is color matched to the truck and engineered to be an off road trailer and eventually will have the same wheels/tires as the truck.

    I never imagined how much difference this little trailer could make -- I really do love it!!

    You know, I've had my eye on something like that for a while. But when you get down to it. If I'm going to tow something, I wanna be able to shower and poop in it. I guess you could do that in yours... But it would really make a mess.

    The bed does look nice, and I like the rack up top too.

    It is a Little Guy (www.golittleguy.com) combination of the RoughRider and SilverShadow -- pretty much a SilverShadow cabin on a RoughRider frame.

    Thanks for the kind words!! I really am loving it!!

    (and yes -- what a mess!!! -- it is a tradeoff -- just something to sleep/cook in as opposed to something larger -- but mission first!!)....

    ;-)

    I love looking at camping rigs and pics. The 'Little Guy' is sick! Since I am old and broken, I no longer enjoy sleeping on the ground. Here is my latest solution to my travels. Sometimes I am out for more than a month and need a place to work and be comfortable during bad weather. I also like to be 'off the grid'. This little trailer is lifted and has quad shocks, dual group 27 batteries, solar and I carry a generator. Fully loaded, it weighs in at 3800#. I can easily be away from civilization for a week or more. When I can't get the trailer to where I need to spend the night I will sleep in the truck bed or use a hammock.

    try http://www.casitatraveltrailers.com/ for small "full-featured" and light travel trailers.. I think it's one of them. Not as light as a teardrop, but comes with a bathroom and AC. The tanks are small though.. Bushes are a better option for long term.

    This is my next move. The RTT's been nice, but I want/need more interior space and comfort (plus I'm tired of having to crawl down a ladder in the morning to pee!). Seems a pop-up is the best way to go because it's easier to get in and out of places than a full trailer.

    It's an Oliver, made by Oliver Technologies, in Tenn. I was lucky to find it because there are only 45 of these in the world. Oliver Tech. is just now beginning to build them again. They will turn out some 22 footers before building more 17 footers like mine. They will not come cheap, I think $45,000 for the loaded 22. I got mine, a 2008, for $23,500 and he threw in the Yamaha generator plus other stuff. They are built 'bullet proof'. Double hull with insulation, dual pane windows, aluminum frames with adjustable tongue. All furniture is moulded in like in a sailboat. Hardware is marine grade stainless. It comes lifted with quad shocks and a 5200# axel. I put 16 inch wheels and Michelin LT tires on after I got it.

    There is a trailer made in Canada called an Escape that is almost as good if you get it with all the extras. The Oliver was designed off of the Casita. The Oliver brothers took a Casita and put two engineers and a design team on a Casita and redesigned it from the ground up with the thought of being able to dry camp for extended periods.

    The FJ towed the Oliver all through the Rockies with no problem. I think my new Taco will be even better.

    Having a rig like this allows me to be well rested day after day so that I can be at the top of my game when I hike to places like this to make some photographs.
