Great pictures, got to make it to Moab one of these days. We carry 2 4x4 ATV's and my old faithful YJ as well. We spend a lot of time in the Rocky mountains up north here.

Bear, love your tow setup, now thats a TRUCK! Do you hitch the YJ behind the trailer? Ours is one of the states down here that doesn't allow it (Washington) but I have seen guys rolling through Idaho and Utah that way so must be legal there. We have friends that are in the BC Jeep club that live in Kellowna and have been to Moab before with us.

Thanks, and yes, I tow the YJ behind the trailer. I have been through northern BC and up to Alaska with it and never had any problems, I have stayed out of Southern BC, but have been all over Western Canada with it. If and when the econmy comes back on line I plan on upgrading from the YJ to a 2000ish Rubicon.

Great setup Bear. My friend at work has a built TJ and keeps wishing somone would build a 5er toyhauler that could haul it. He has a 30' trailer but we can't do combinations like yours in this state. If he had it his way he would buy the same rig I have and pull his Jeep behind it like we do and then join us in Moab, but his wife is dead set against a motorhome. Oh well.

One of the reasons I rigged this up is because it was way cheaper than a motorhome, and the other is so I could take all the toys along in the 10 ft garage or on the tractor. I carry both quads, 300 extra gallons of fresh water for dry camping (400 total) full sized BBQ, 6 rack smoker, gas pressure washer, chainsaw, about 500 lbs of hand tools, 50 gallon fuel cell for fueling toys, ect, ect. Work is scarce for me now, so this summer we spent a full month in Northern Saskatchewan ATV'ing, jeeping, fishing (lots of trophy lakes up there) ect, then we went down into Southern Alberta into the mountains to play for another full month, all dry random camping (read free), never went into a campground, had a great time, wife and dogs were happy and comfy, so it was all good. If you guys ever want to come north and do some off roading, let me know. We are thinking next year we would like to head down into Idaho and other states to do some exploring. We are both avid metal detectors as well and love hitting old gost towns ect.

We would love to come up. So many places to see and still 6 years before I can retire. We find ourselves always saying "after we retire". Same goes here too if you wanna come down and do some Jeepn' we know where all the trails are. We love ghost towns and exploring them also. Our favorite is Silver City Idaho (it's on our web site). We had planned on an extended trip to Colorado this year to Jeep and explore the ghost towns but alas that work issue is getting in the way and it appears that I won't be able to get the time off. Oh well, only 6 more years. I would love to see your setup in person though as it really intrigues me.

Arggg I've hijacked my own thread... LOL ...

Really?

That is an impressive setup. From the looks of it you could load that YJ where the atv is!

This brings up a good question. Is there a tt or 5er that has the room and capcity for a jeep inside?
When I first started looking at trailers I came across a 30' thinking around 03 model toyhauler that the seller claimed easily held a scion xb. I cant remember the specs but do remember the jeep weight pushing the limits or being over.
By the time I had time to get to look at it, it was already sold.

We had gone to an RV show just up the road from us about a year and a half ago where the dealer said one of their toyhaulers had the capacity for a Jeep inside. The rig was about the size of Bear's 5er. The problem for us hard core jeepers is that a stock Jeep might just barely clear but with any kind of lift or bigger tires and it won't. We run 5.5" of lift and 35" tires, it barely fits into my garage door with a 7' tall opening. Add to that a weight of close to 4700lbs for the Jeep alone and you would need a truck like Bear's to pull the trailer with the Jeep loaded up. It wouldn't be a light rig by any streach
