Just curious.
Just a poke, huh?
Carrying a spare is something that challenges me. I do not carry one - I know, I know. It is a space/risk management trade off. I carry plugs and a small compressor. So far, this has served me well over 70k of Bronco miles and countless others in other vehicles (turn to spit over my shoulder).

On this trip, my friend took his overly overlanded tricked out Tacoma. He has a drawer system in the bed. Like all things camping, there is a trade off. Yes, it is nice to store stuff in them. However, that raises everything else carried in the bed by a foot or so. Also, once you start properly using your tailgate for cooking and such, getting into the drawers is not an option. To me, the cons outweighs the pros.

At one of our spots, we were sitting there and someone came rolling into the next campground towing a gem behind a huge RV. We jumped into my Bronco and chased him down for a chat. Restored '70 from TX.

Finally pulled the trigger on this little weird square drop camper. Made by microlite and found the hightop model as they make both a low and high top.
High top has 5' from floor to ceiling.

Going to lift it and put 31 or 33" tires on it, trailer brake axle and other amenities. Right now it has AC, a roof vent, two doors and the galley kitchen.

Only weights around 670 I believe currently.

The right one is not mine FYI

Just got back from Michigan's UP. Here's a few pics of my homegrown military camper trailer. Used a double model cot tent for the sleeping quarters. Weighs just under 1000 pounds loaded up with camping gear, 10 gallons of water, and 4 gallons of spare fuel. Bronco pulls it nicely.
