Pop-up Tent Trailer for Wheeling
Got a new project. 2001 viking 1706 tent trailer, very basic. It is only 12' long hitch to back. I flipped the axel down under the springs, added a block, and three new 24X6.8-13 tires to get a 7 inch lift. It has 11 inches of clearance under the axel and 22" under the frame. It only weighs 1,200lbs unloaded. Got plans for a generator, maybe AC, CO2 for air-ups, and an outdoor shower. CO2 could run my airtools and the generator my welder. It has heat, lighting, sink/water/pump, and much storage. I think it will be great for longer trips as a base camp. I should be able to get it out and away from other RV's, down a 4X track, into the woods! I'll still tent camp for overnight quickies or where taking a trailor won't work, and some trails require you to pack light.
Now to sell the boat to cover it. Recent move to CO from AZ's large lakes makes boating here less fun than the Rockies. The Rockies be my thing now, so I got a small, wheelable, land yacht.
