My wife would never let me get rid of the popup, or I'd be on one of these for the all around utility.
    That's sortta how I was looking at it, the utility part sold it for me. I'm a truck kind of guy and struggle with out that utility. The downfall being how we don't have a kitchen setup. We've considered sortta making our own off the front of the tent, but those plans are down the road. I use a non-california compliant (who knows why) Mr. Heater hooked up to a propane tank on the ground outside to keep us warm. There's a velcro spot in the back to run the propane line in. If it's pretty cold we let down the divider for the other bed to knock down the sq ft. inside the trailer that needs to be heated.

    It's already paid for itself in my mind. I need to go get another load of firewood here pretty soon!

    Well I added more utility to the "utility" feature of this trailer. Picked up one of these from Harbor Freight, pleasantly pleased with the quality and I'd recommend it.

    Tested it out on the ground before installing it, thankfully the piece that flips up behind the wheel is adjustable. I was a little nervous rolling it in, so I backed it out and adjusted it to lowest setting and it barely fit. Pretty damn close to hitting the fender.






    Lined it up as far forward as I could, knowing it would be a tight fit, so the tire would be very close to touching the front wall of the trailer. I drilled the 4 holes through the floor and bolted it down.

    Loaded up the bike.






    The bike fits, but just barely! My biggest concern was making sure the back tire was not on the tailgate. If it was I'd reinforce the tailgate somehow before using it. You can see the rear leg of the trailer down on the ground under the tailgate, that thing comes in handy!




    Strapped it down and I was on my way!


    After I got home took out the 4 bolts and tossed the tent bag back in!

    It's certainly turning out that way! I'm happy with the outcome as well!

    Fairly decent trailer & tent for that price. You can spend that on a trailer and still need a tent. What is,the axle rated for?

    Rated at 2k, I know I had it overloaded with firewood a couple times but it did pretty well. I won't be worrying about the new axle under the trailer, ever....
