    Really? That's awesome.

    My set up is a bit bigger, but I'm doing 13.5 to 15.5 with bikes on top and depending on speed and terrain.

    BTW, awesome pictures. Can't wait to start camping more with ours.

    That's what I got today, pulling home from The Barrens, trailer only weighs 550 lb empty. With battery and some camping gear, somewhere around 650 give or take!

    Wow, that is light. I would have expected a little more.

    Yep...really bad Sat evening. Needed bug spray for sure in camp. If you were moving (riding)it was fine. I wore bug spray in camp and no bites really, Bonnie didn't and her neck is mess of bites

    Summer is not good...deer flies are BRUTAL on the Barrens in Summer!!! Either come before early-mid June or wait until mid-late August. September and even October is great out there!! For summer riding Buckwallow is best, and the BRMC is also nice

    Wow, you roll in luxury now. Nice setup, and nice pictures as always.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Thanks for the headsup! I will plan around that schedule.

    Ryan, we would still prefer canoe tripping with tents, but life realities (such as elderly, dependant parents) make that difficult to the point it just hasn't been happening.
    This little camper makes getting away for some short boon docks both easier and still lot's of fun! I love the little teardrop trailers with the galley in back, but this style is same size and weight overall, but a little taller with raised bed that converts to a couch. All in all more practical for us with the big dog!

    Yes, it sounds like you have found a great solution for quick boon dock adventures. Very minimal setup means you can spend more time playing or relaxing, and can make a quick departure if needed.

    The only thing that might compare in terms of ease of use would be a conversion van.
