New trailer design Cargo with Sleeping Quarters

A friend of mine who worked with me had a vision of a trailer you could haul an ATV in and then set it up for camping. His main focus was to have something light that could be pulled by a small 4 or 6 cylinder SUV or van.

His original one had fold down beds inside of it. Cool design but he went out and designed the VRV, versatile RV, it had side doors that fold down and deploys canvas like a pop up trailer.

My son has the 2006 Element and this could be the perfect trailer for him moving around the country.

You have to admire a person who has an idea and and can make it come to life.

I tried to post a photos but could not get it to show so here is the link.

Nice trailer,you can travel with a motorcycle and have a place to sleep.
Its not too heavy to pull with the element.

Very clever. Boundless ingenuity out there, especially among camping enthusiasts!

Great idea! That would work extremely well when I deploy to fire camps and the only option is the ground in a tent (usually a *very* small tent).

Maybe I missed it, but does it specify the weight (empty) anywhere? I know it can not be much, but the numbers would be nice to know.

Oh - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

Cargo trailer with camping

Chariot Manufacturing Company => http://www.chariotmanufacturing.com/ makes of full line of motorcycle trailers with options for camping (side screen door, pull down bed). I have the Cycle Shuttle 10-6 (now enlarged to theCycle Shuttle 11-0) which is perfect for an E. The Shuttle 16 (too big for an E) has a full galley option. Follow http://www.elementownersclub.com/for...ad.php?t=50944 for an image.
