Always welcome here!

It's not stepping out to change my mind that I'll have to do, it has no indoor plumbing. Port-a-potti time..

FYI, a friend has one like that, it's a PITA getting enough tongue weight to prevent sway. I ended installing a Curtis sway control on it for her. It helped but it's still not perfect. Load it up and pull on a scale!

You can always add a few things to your teardrop and at least get the sleeping part fixed up pretty good...

I would love to use something like this on RADIO COMMS runs I usually make off the power grid and something like has even caught my eye...

I have this really cool weight distribution / sway hitch. Got it because the tongue weight of the popup was not in the limits of my car, and I will load it up. Packed my car today, oh my, I have a lot. But staying out for at least six weeks, I hope. I planned ahead. Thanks for the advice I'll follow it.

I actually considered something like that and a few other real serious off road ones, like the No Boundries NOBOs, the small ones, but this seemed more reasonable for long stays away from my home, abode, building, the place I currently rest my head.

BTW I really like those they're super neat, and I am going to get a awningfor the Kid, but for now going to use my canopy with a screen room attachment. It will work pretty good. Going to sleep out on the air mattress sometimes, maybe.

I never saw one of those, and I looked at a lot of trailers. Didn't see one in any center, not even centers that specialize in Jayco. If I'd known I probably would have. *sniff* I saw Hummingbirds but they were all much bigger than that looks to be. Most of them wouldn't be tow-able by my car. But that one looks plenty light and small enough. Darn

Thanks John,

Heading to Michigan today to pick up the trailer and then to 1st campground. Going to Ausable River Campground on East side of state near Lake Superior (inland). If anyone is going to be there let me know.
