Off road trailer/camper
« on: April 13, 2017, 01:42:18 PM »
Selling my camper special. PM me with any more questions.

Frame is 2x2 1/4 wall, built by me, overbuilt honestly
suspension is cherokee leafs with short shocks and shackles
axle is out of a camper, has electric breaks, not hooked up though
5x4.5 lug pattern, 32x11.50/15 BFG ATs decent tread on steelies
adjustable pintle hitch, military style
12v yellow top deep cycle in toolbox
multiple exterior and interior lights
lopro roof rack for RTT or whatever
the camper top is a LEER, made for the bed, good glass and screens
Bed is in pretty good shape, no rust whatsoever
RTT is not included
10lb propane bottle and holder
rear stabilizing setup that fits in rear hitch
1500lb winch on cradle that fits rear receiver just in case

 forgive the first pic, thats how i mounted to frame lol



just build pics for reference



you can see the axle in this shot, I narrowed and flipped it portal style to make tons of clearance









sorry the last ones blurry. Im going to get up to date photos tonight.

I honestly have no clue what its worth, but i do know that its the most capable trailer ive ever owned and seen in person, with the clearance and the light weight. Similar "off road" campers start in the $5k range and go crazy from there. I have dragged it all over the southeast and wouldnt hesitate to take it wherever i wanted to go, it doesnt leak or let in the creepy crawlers and is 6'3" from the headboard to tailgate, ive slept many nights in it.

Im going to start the price at $2000 for GATR members, will be higher other places online. I dont have to sell it, its just taking up room in my garage and needs to be used, but I will entertain most any reasonable cash offer. Fell free to repost or tell anyone you think might be interested, if you help sell it ill def make it worth it.

I've been wanting a trail trailer, but I think I'm going to design and build my own. Have you posted anywhere else?

That's actually pretty cool.  Too bad I don't camp that much.  I actually kept seeing this thread but the pic that was showing up in Tapatalk was the first one where it was upside down so I was like wtf.  Lol.

i would agree if there werent guys out there selling bare-bones military trailers for the same amount with no tops at all. The "overland" trailers out there are insanely expensive, you cant get into one at all for less than $5k, and they dont have this kind of ground clearance or capability.

That pic should sell it quick. Sorry, my comment may have been misconstrued, not implying anything about the price. I think it's a sweet deal. I just want to try my hand at some fabrication and think this might be a good opportunity. If I had the cash expendable on hand I'd scoop it up today.

What is the weight of the trailer with the cap?  Did you pull it with your LJ?  Does it come with a color matched paint job?  :)

Yeah much better!  That is a cool setup.  Good luck with the sale.  That pic makes me want to buy it and I don't need it...

no no no, i got thick skin lol ...

honestly dont know, if i had to guess id say less than 1k lbs, the jack is a folding setup with a large non-flat wheel and i can push it all over the place by myself when it is unhooked. Yes I have pulled it with the LJ multiple times, you can tell its there, but its not so much that you feel like you need a truck. Behind the trucks you cant tell its there until you look back. Color matched? we can talk about that for sure @BigMike lol , you can pick it up when you drop the wifes off ..  //cheers2//
