    what is your trailer ? camp trailer , teardrop , travel trailer or ????????

    ok so I have been looking at all kinds of trailers......................... camp trailers , travel trailers , teardrop trailers , converted cargo haulers , pop up campers and just about thing that can be lived out of regardless of what it was ... I already know I am going to be going full time travelling within the next few years to get out the rat race ......I know I need something a bit off road capable as the forest roads and blm roads/trails aren't always in the best of shape and this is where I will be spending a fair amount of time as its free, but I also plan to do a fair amount of the N.P. and being as off the grid in general as much as possible .....

    what I wanna know is what type of trailer you chose and why you chose that type doesn't matter if your living out of like what I wanna do or if you just pull it out once a yr for some off road travels .. doesn't matter if it is a fully loaded and bought or if you happened to make it yourself and outfitted how you wanted it to be ... show some shots of it , give some details on weight and how it is outfitted , options you picked and why , tanks size , solar , no solar (already know I will have solar no matter what I wind up in)..... how well it pulls , affect on your mpg ( ya I know its gonna go in the toilet if its a full travel trailer ) ....... but just think of all the questions you had in your head when ya got to looking at different options and till you found what ya wanted ... that's where I'm at right now ..

    I ended up with a 1963 aristocratic. I rolled the axel, gave it about 5" of lift. 10 gal gravity water tank, I also carry water to refill the tank. It has 110 plug in, but I have a full solar power system in it as well. Fuel mileage goes to shit. Here is a shot of it next to loon lake IMG_3646.jpg

    Edit: this shot is before I rolled the axel, for the lift. I bottomed it out getting out of this spot.

    Yeah mine is definitely a base camp set up. I was really surprised how well it handles dirt roads/fire trails though. I'll be building one for the rocks/over landing here soon I hope.

    understand that ... and that's most of the sort of thing I do now ... i'll base out from somewhere and run from there while i'm in the area , but I know things like WABR ,Mojave road it would be simpler to just pull it on down instead of backtracking and needing to get it afterwards ...so being able to get it off road is a bit of a must for what I'm looking at ... but at same time I wont rule out something that isn't as capable as I might wish it was if it seems like the right option for me and my budget which at the moment is a bit open ended as I know I'm still a few yrs from doing this ...

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
