    Off road-ish trailer build

    For the past few months I have been making a tiny house trailer for longer trips in the Jeep. I wanted a trailer with all the comforts of home yet have the ability to travel on dirt roads. So I came up with this. I welded the frame using 1/16” and 1/8th steel tubing and added 31” all terrain tires giving it a ground clearance of 22” under the frame. The trailer has a sleeping/living corder with an exterior kitchen. The trailer is powered using 3 100 watt solar panels hooked up to a 1500 watt inverter.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
