Cool, I get the first post:D

 

Have a harbor freight trailer to tow behind the bike, working on ideas for a "box". As usual I don't go the normal route. For another little trailer the Wife and I built you can look here http://www.wcscrc.net/teardrop.htm

Thanks Devan, still deciding what style cargo container to make. Thought about a mini version of the teardrop also thought about a mini boat as a cargo hold. Too many ideas and only one trailer to use:P

I went with Gadgets idea for the cargo trailer..I posted his web site in the links here. Its 40x48 and just right to hold all your food, chairs, 12x17 tent, airbed, and all the other camping equipment. Plus we still have room.

 

I have found a few good small teardrops sites. I will hunt them up and post them here in the links section if I come across them.

I saw that and bookmarked it for future reference, thanks.

 

I have a bad habit on not wanting to do the normal thing:D

Thanks, it is comfy but on the small side. Definately do NOT go to bed angry LOL

 

You also can not be shy when camping in it. Our last trip we were laying in bed early morning about to wake up, I rolled over and there is a face looking at me thru the window. Asked if I can help them, they said they were just waiting for us to wake up so they could ask us questions. The did bring coffee though so I let them live<g>

It does look great... But I was wondering the same thing??? Did you actually tow it down the highway with a GW??? I love the idea.

 

I know the 3' x 4' x 1.5' box that's behind my GW is a bit big and can be rather challenging to drag around... Not to mention the MPG's fall slightly...:doh:

Hey Mopar Man, no haven't towed it down the highway with the wing. Can't see around it well enough to change lanes and would not want to see what happens when you hit a bump in the road:no:

 

So, with your name I assume you have a Mopar? Maybe a 73?
