    Vintage makes good high quality trailers as well. They will haul your Jeep no problem. I have an older one I traded for.
    The ramp is no problem, I do block the back of the trailer when loading up.

    I recently met a guy with a pretty new one, with different options than mine. You can get them pretty much any length you want. Mine is 48', and is longer than needed by a lot. I would opt for a 38 to 40 foot if I had a choice.

    Well after quick google search, I got this answer... You can with Class A CDL and must be a 5th wheel or goose neck towing a smaller trailer behind. Must be under 20K GVWR and 65 feet.

    If I remember correctly it was 85' up until a couple years ago. I had a friend who's dad was pissed when they changed it because he could no longer use his setup.

    Or you could do what I plan on doing in a couple of years. Buy an old school bus, chop the back half to fit a jeep in it, and then fix the front half up as a sleeper with stove, shower, whatever you may want. A guy local to me has a bus done up like that. He calls it the Taj-Ma-HAUL.

    LOL that's a great name but too much work. I spent some time looking a Class A's and Super C's today and think that is the best way to with the Jeep now.

    I have a Jayco Seneca 36FK Super C. I tow a 20' enclosed trailer. The V-nose isn't counted in the measurements. Overall length is 68' 3". It pulls like a dream, but mountains are a bit of an issue. The 6.7 Cummins is a wonderful engine, but I am asking a lot from it. 33.960 lbs at a CAT scale.
    If I had it to do all over, I'd get an 8' ceiling height and a side entrance access door where the Jeep door is. That will allow easier egress.

    I hear you on the side door idea.

    I a bigger guy, and getting out after the Jeep is in the trailer is a challenge. A side door would make it much easier, especially if it lines up to the driver's door when loaded.

    That is a really nice setup. I will just be towing the jeep for awhile and get a trailer down the road. The only reason I would even need a trailer is to add quads or dirt bikes for the kiddo in a few years. I have seen a few of these Jaycos out there and they can be kinda of pricey. I do like the towing numbers, ease of access to engine, and safety of them over a class A.

    ATC just introduced a new fifth wheel. Their initial prototype had twin 8k axles but the production models will all be triple 7k torsion axles. The GVWR on the trailer is a little over 21K and the dry weight is just under 12k. It is the ONLY toy hauler on the market like it. Nobody else comes close. Price on it is around $120k.

    The best time to get a RV is now find a 18 still on the lot because the 19's are out and they will just about sell the 18's for cost

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.
