    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    Not sure about the trailer, I’d have to look at some paperwork when I’m at home, but the bike is about 650lbs

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    I know it used to be 2000lb max for all the 2 doors, not sure what year they changed it but it varies now.

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    I keep saying out West because I’m in SE Texas now, but there’s a high likelihood that I’ll be living in Denver within the next 5 years. And from there I will have a lot more options for places to go.

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    I’m by no means an expert at towing and trailers, but I keep reading up on things as I can. I do have some experience from towing a fish and ski boat with my old YJ, and more recently a utility trailer and motorcycle with my JK. I know the 2 door JK isn’t the best tow vehicle but it’s the...

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    I knew matching the width of the vehicle or at least the trailer being smaller was preferable, but I didn’t think about or I had forgotten to consider the width of the wheels and the track they will follow. Going slow and enjoying the scenery off the beaten path seems to me like one of the...

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    So maybe the better question is this: If you have a teardrop or a trailer that is just capable of “light off-roading”, would you be missing out on much during a trip to primitive camp on BLM lands? Or, do you need a Very capable/beefed up teardrop or trailer to get away from the RV parks on...

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    Maybe I have answered my own questions as I’m asking them, so maybe I’m wondering more in general of how capable does a trailer need to be to go down some basic trails. I’d love to go to some of these places we see these pics of off road teardrops going over serious terrain. But in general, are...

    Advice on trailer vs teardrop

    Okay so I know everyone’s opinion will vary to huge degrees, but I was hoping for some input from some experienced people in the community.. My Current Experience: My camping has almost always been primitive camping, only what I could carry on my back and hike several miles into the woods...

    FINALLY! Picked up an IntechRV Explore trailer!

    Nice camper. I’ve been doing a lot of looking at those as well, although I’m leaning more towards the Pursue. There aren’t a lot of places to go check them out but I did get a look at one of their older versions a while back and they seem to be built very well. Have fun with all the mods and...

    Intech RV

    I️ see the updates changed the names, but is the Pursue available without the kitchen so you can just use that area for storage? I️ went and looked at the Chase and Pursue in SE Texas last week, I️ like them both. I️ would definitely be interested in stepping up a bit in size from the Chase to...
