    Here's my current setup: 2008 Nissan Xterra pulling a Fleetwood Americana tent trailer. As you can see, I have two cartop boxes mounted on the tent trailer for storing all the camping gear and firewood, and I've modified my Thule Ridgeline hitch mount rack to work with a Valley double receiver. Works perfectly.

    A very cool pop up that is designed for outdoor sports. Only weighs 800lbs. Kind of a base camp tent on a trailer. It is set up to accept standard bike rack rails.The pop up can be pulled low or high to give you an option to pull motorcycles or larger gear. There is a great pdf and flash presentation on their web page. http://www.sylvansport.com Starts at $6,200
    That think is exactly what i have been looking for. I got rid of my truck to get a subaru. The MPG on the truck was killing me. Now i need something really light that i can trailer for camping. But not kill my MPG on longer trips.

    In the intrests of....

    Keeping this thread on track...

    I debated all kinds of options after using my mom's 27ft class C for 2 trips to Moab (2 weeks once, and then 1 week). Trailer...I lusted after an Airstream...too expensive...even the little tent convertible one. Thought about a pop up. But, I liked being able to get a sandwich on the side of the road. Ain't happening with a pop up trailer. Thought about a Class B. Found out about the 4x4 Sportsmobile van conversion....COOL! But way EXPENSIVE.

    I also get moved around on average every 2 years for work and have other toys I prefer to take with me. So, being able to tow with my camping rig was a priority. But, I hate towing and prefer not to do it. Don't like the decreased maneuverability when towing. I also wanted to be comfortable in May in Moab....and December in Yosemite or somewhere else playing in the snow.

    I normally camp away from CGs...near as possible to trail heads. I have a 110W solar panel that keeps my batteries topped off and only have an issue if I park under shade.

    This is my solution.

    ... and if we just ... My Restored 61' aristocrat

    A friend of mine lived in this while going college. It was up on blocks and painted white. Took some work to get it into this condition. I'm thinking of mounting a repair rack and bench on back. I put a shower,full kitchen ,table ,ac/heat, microwave , tv, dvd and a foldout fullsize bed inside. Great for mtb trips.

    Klay, love the VW rv...

    That thing rocks. Nice work. My brother has the same model. I sent him pics of yours as inspiration.

    Oh yeah, has anyone with a pop up had to repair the canvas? I've got my eye on a 6' unit but the canvas has torn near one of the seams that slide into the frame and one of the windows is cut. Just wondering what the repair cost might be. The canvas looks pretty recent otherwise.

    I think the price keeps going down, maybe in a few weeks they would pay someone to take it.

    The Wife and I have use different set up depending on where we are going. While I miss our old pop up we no longer have it, a good buddy of ours does. Here are a few pics of the different ways

    A good read...

    Here's a good take on the joys of lil trailer like our Trail Mite...Bolers, Scamps, Casitas, Escapes, etc.

    Sometimes less is more. Sometimes less is just enough.

    Bigfoot - Did you ever rig up your shower for your trailer? Wondering how that turned out. I have an opportunity to buy a '78 Boler locally and trying to collect some info on these little things.

    Thanks,

    No, I never did the shower mod. Instead I got a collasible shower enclosure and a sun shower, which allows us more freedom as to where we use it. When we're boondocking for instance, it's easier and more private to be able to go hang the enclosure and shower in a tree nearby. I do plan on still getting a propane water heater, though. Sometimes there's just not enough sunlight to get the sun shower up to a usable temp.

    For more information on Bolers, Scamps, etc., than you ever thought possible, visit www.fiberglassrv.com.

    Too bad about all the anti-RV sentiment. Anyway, this rig works well for us. Sometimes we don't go home for months at a time.Name:  68 C11 and Cherokee.JPG
