This project has been a fun one and definitely tested my skills and patience from time to time. The trailer tows great behind my truck and hasn't really affected my gas mileage too much. After a week and a half camping in the desert, it performed admirably and will be a great weekender for someone that likes to tent camp without the hassle of setting up the tent after each move. Building it to my specifications was both a creative and thought-provoking endeavor.
Now the negatives. First, the trailer is a stretch as a full-time RV as there isn't enough room to move around when the weather outside isn't cooperating. After a 48 hr. Santa Ana wind blew through, my dog and I were ready to abandon ship. Second, as a writer, I need a dedicated table at which to use my laptop and there just isn't room to accommodate this.
If you need something to tow behind a car as you spend a week camping on occasion, this would be fine, but if you need something more, as I do, save your money and step up to a travel trailer or motorhome. I now live and travel in a 19' Skyline Nomad and while still a little small at times, it weighs in at under 3000 lbs. and tows perfectly behind my V6 truck.
Hope to see you out on the road :~)
