Sorry for the late reply - I forgot about this thread.

It's a 30' 14k gooseneck with a 16' Rockwood camper. The Jeep just fits on the deck. It has an Onan genset under the deck so its pretty quiet inside. Pretty simple inside but super comfy for me and the wife.

So your left with about 14 foot of deck? Your setup looks killer

Yeah- just under 14' since the camper can't sit quite flush to the front. I have about 6" in front of the Cherokee and the rear wheels are right at the rear of the deck.

The bonus is the old lady actually likes camping now.

Your setup is perfect and exactly what I would want. My only problem is that I don't have a truck.....yet. The only thing I would have to pull a trailer would be my '99 Durango with 5.9L V8. I thought that would be ok, but I'm new to all of this and after reading on this site I see that I'll have to rethink my plans.

Love it all!!! Got the OK from the wife to build one after we move.

One question though, how well do all these tow when you dont have the rig on the back? Say we were to just go camping without the rig. Im thinking for this, dual tandem axles would tow better

Plus, it wouldnt hurt to have this topic back up at the top

Single tri axle will always tow easier than a dual tandem. Highways that have wear ruts, snow, mud, ect, will not be as noticeable with the single tires.

This was the setup we ran to long distance races so we would have enough beds for everyone.

Thanks.

The trailer has 28' of deck.

We used the winch on the tracker to pull the camper onto the trailer. There is a ball mounted to the deck under the front axle of the Tracker that we dropped the coupler on and then strapped the axle down. We also ran a plug back to hook up the lights on the pop-up.

Not done yet but it's a 14' uhaul box (11' floor) on a 24' tag. Pretty basic, AC, 3 twin beds, counter, table and fridge.

It goes off and on the trailer in about 20 min. There are 8 bolts to deck frame. Pull them, slide in 2 10' long piece of channel with trailer jacks on each end and crank them up and pull away.

Best pic I have at the moment.
