    Leave it to me to bring the redneck crap to the thread. I'm planning on building a crawler hauler sooner than later. I'm basically shooting for this. Will still be able to use the trailer for anything else if needed, and you can get the camping portion set up on the cheap.

    Not my pics, but that's the plan. Significantly less nice than most of the other options in this thread, but you can get slide in campers for under a grand all day.

    Those "redneck" setups still work well. My buddy is making one now but he's using a larger camper on the front vs a truck bed one. He's been looking at 20' campers to go on his 40' trailer.

    The camper build is sweet! Not sure what to say about the FJ... and that tow rig looks a little light.

    I do agree with staying in hotel with everyone. Half the fun is hearing all the stories from the day out on the trail and then looking forward to the next one. Just need open goose to get you to and from.

Built to commercial standards, (riveted aluminum sides, like a semi trailer) they are a MUCH better investment than any fiberglass bonded to plywood, camper type toy hauler. Featherlite has been building all the race trailers for the pros for years. Sundowner is just redesigning their top notch horse trailers for the auto enthusiast market. You can even order them with polished stainless sides.
    For guys on a budget, like me, you can even buy a used pro quality horse trailer and remove the gates and make your own garage model.
    Here is some pics of the Sundowner, pulled from the web...

About us
努ayoflife is a moniker that I致e 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.
