MrsRojhan and I are done with tent camping. Setup time (try setting up when it's pouring down rain...), amenities, etc. are... a bit lacking, and they aren't very secure (see pics
) There really isn't enough room in the KL for even one person to sleep, never mind two. No matter how much stuff goes on the roof.
We've had a couple of 25' trailers setup for when we had 5 dogs, but they've all retired and have passed over the Rainbow Bridge. Just us and possibly 2 cats to harass, now.
Teardrop campers just seem way too expensive for what you get. The same for "off-road" campers. They also don't really have enough room to just kick back and relax. A full travel trailer is more than we want/need. Roof-top tents have been considered as well, but we do want the sink, etc. amenities.
We're currently looking at A-Frame style trailers and they seem to have become more feature-ful and useful over time. I've got a slight bias against pop-up campers from the horrible reliability in the 70s. There's still moving parts on the new A-Frames, but they may be our answer. We'll be hitting dealers sometime in the near future, but are currently considering this (or similar design): http://www.forestriverinc.com/produc...elID=2145#Main
2,650lbs dry weight, 84" width and 68" height (when closed) makes it sound like it would be an ideal toad for the KL. The general plan is to base-camp somewhere (either an established camp or boondocking) and then day-trip to do stuff; exploring/photography/tourism, 4x4, whatever.
We may also be able to store the trailer in the garage, with room for the Jeep. I'll need to measure and then confirm with the reality (test drive, Mr Dealer?
