Another cool pull behind

Micro-Lite trailers make some nice small trailers . I am purchasing one.
The Cargo-Lite Extreme. Made of aluminum.
Barely tall enough for a 6 footer inside but will haul two motorcycles, sleep two and can be had with propane, elec, fridge etc. No toilet though. Mucho room for gear and it gives the option of sleeping in the van or trailer. (yes you would have to roll out m/c's to sleep in it)
The man will custom configure to a point for you.
None of these travel trailers (ALL travel trailers) will handle out back 4x4 type travel, where they get beat by rough terrain. That is not my intention though. I tend to base camp with power somewhere.
Mine will be like the one on the right. Comes with a lift & bigger tires.

Re: Another cool pull behind

Not bad E. It would be nice with a water tank and maybe a make shift shower but I guess if you're planning on shore power most places have showers. Are you still keeping your van to pull the trailer with it?

Re: Another cool pull behind

We would like to get an enclosed trailer some day. We have an open cargo trailer that works for the motorcycles and firewood, but it's a little short on security and weather protection. Not sure about sleeping - maybe for guests.

It is available with onboard water Dave. I am not doing onboard water so I do not have to winterize.
I have a nifty water carrying set-up that satisfies me.

Yes keeping the van! My 2010 has 40k miles on it. And still, I've driven it only once in the last four months.
This trailer, for me, allows camping in the van without have to unload it (when carrying m/c's).
I live for motorcycles.
I still have a 24' travel trailer for the big long vacations...
Cheers!

And now I can carry MORE bikes! Plus sleep, cook, heat/cool, tunes & 20" screen.

It is the modern day doghouse.

Re: Another cool pull behind

Thanks tg! The pewter is a shade off but pretty close to the pueblo gold.
Its a fun lightweight cargo hauler at 1300 lbs (all aluminum), although probably not tough enough to bounce through the outback.
Decent sound, heat and cooling, plus a multi speed fan up top.
