I am looking to build up a simple tent trailer for offroading trips. We have 3 kids so the little Adventure-trailer types are not so good, as we need a really big tent. We do have a big tent (Springbar) which we like, but for setting up and down every day it is a pain. So a basic tent trailer would be great. I have seen basic coleman etc tent trailers on CL for 350-500 bucks. At that price I am not worried about it falling apart over a couple of summers. What I want to do is put one of those on 35 inch tires so it matches the spare on our Defender 110, put a pintle hitch ring on it, and off we go.
I have seen a few threads here with tent trailers put on bigger tires, but nothing in the sizes I am looking at.
Also I am interested in a way of mounting the tires without a solid axle, so I don't need to worry about getting that axle hung up when we do trails like the whipsaw, etc.
Any thoughts welcome.
