Team -- My family and I are in the market for extending our off-road adventures into camping (not overlanding...yet), but wanted to generate a forum where Taco owners can post their setup with Teardrop trailers or regular trailers (Note: I understand, Tacos are limited to what we can pull).

A couple considerations for our family:
- Affordability
- Practical
- We're not glampers!

Post your SETUP!

I’m not sure we have anyone on T3G with a complete trailer yet. But, for the time being, I recommend YouTube searching Overland Expo West 2018. It just happened and there’s a ton of videos that show all the trailer options that were on display.

I'm slowly re-purposing an old military trailer. I know the jeep crew love their M416 and M100 trailers, but I had to get an M101A1. It will follow my Taco pretty much anywhere (same wheel base), and can carry at least 1 Ton off-road.

If interested I could do a whole build thread on it: IMG_20170902_142818.jpgIMG_20170722_115407.jpgIMG_20170722_115416.jpg

I got a buddy who picked up a small trailer off Craigslist for cheap and built his own. Turned out pretty good I think.

That is really nice he needs to hack off the hitch lock though and weld on a legit off road one and then hes set!

It's on his list. He's still not quite finished with it, but it's turning it pretty nice for his first go.

We rented a RockBox Trailer recently when we went camping for 10 days. It was awesome. The extra storage space and the extra RTT made life so much easier. I would recommend renting a few different trailers before buying one. I have talked to a few people who built their own trailer and asked them if they would build another one? They said for the amount of time and money spent and all the headaches along the way, they recommend buying one built or atleast build from an existing platform.

Here are some trailers/campers that I have recently seen. (In no particular order)

We just ordered a medium duty Hiker Trailer. Something small we can park in the garage and keep loaded so we can just hook up and go. Couldn't afford the full off-road version, although that suspension would have been awesome. Looking forward to sleeping on a six inch memory foam while glamping.
