You have to do a separate thread for this one!Just revisiting this thread because I'm about to take delivery of a Clipper Express 9.0TD. It's a "light duty" tear drop with a pop up lid that will allow me to stand up inside. It's definitely NOT off road ready … but it will be fun to make that way. I bought it in large part because I like the sloping lid. I'll be fabricating kayak racks as the first of many planned improvements. The first 2 pics are of the one I bought. The 3rd one is from the web and shows the lid raised. I think these are called Vikings in the US.

@Albatross , Where did you source the panels and the extrusion to build the foam box? Looks like an awesome build! Congratulations. do you have a build thread somewhere? Are you happy with it?I had very similar requrements and came to the conclusion that I have to build a trailer by myself...
These trailers are designed to be towed behind a Subaru. Not built for rough roads.I forgot about those guys.
Those are great little rigs for smaller tow vehicles.
I do wonder how “off-road” they are though.
What drives me nuts about so many domestic campers, as well as vehicles, is the marketing these things get for the off road crowd. Just look at the debacle with GM not warranting Colorado’s with air bag deployment on dirt roads. It’s very disconcerting. There needs to be some sort of scale or rating system in place for capabilities.

he has a build in his signature, if you're on mobile I dont think those show up.
Search the web for insulated FRP panels or search for companies building refrigerated trucks and waggons/trailors/shelter, they need these panels.
