Re: OT-Jeep sized tent trailer!
I've seen them before. For me to spend 5 grand on one, it would have to come with a cute live in maid.
I've worked some with fiberglass so I've considered doing my own to actually match a Jeep. You can buy the Jeep rear corner repair panels to make a mold for the corners. The rest of it is just flat panels except for the edge along the top. I'd use a standard Jeep tailgate and taillights so it matched the Jeep.
I've been thinking about doing one for a jobsite trailer more than for camping. I designed mine to be just over 6' long inside the trailer so you could sleep without the fold out ledge, but it could be done with a shorter tub too. I'd be spending the remainder of the 5 grand on a two burner stove, refrigerator, propane heater and other creature comforts. Like I said, it would be for the jobsite and they frown on campfires in their parking lots.
I really wish you hadn't posted this, I'd had the idea pushed away in a back corner as a some day thing. Now you've brought it back up to the front and got me thinking seriously about it again. Oh well, owning my own business and using it for a job trailer makes it a tax deduction. I can depreciate it out over the next several years and have a camping trailer for when I retire. Having only worked 36 hours since the end of January, maybe I'm retired already. Anybody need some conveyor?
