Default Slightly roughing it camping

I saw this a year ago at what called SHOT show, it's an industry trade show for everything to do with outdoors, law enforcement, hunting, fishing, camping, etc.
This is really slick...pretty much what the mil. is currently using.(according to the rep.)



it's double walled..so it holds heat or AC great.
in the trailer is a propane generator with a battery setup for running at night without a generator, plus the galley. It looks like it would be a blast.

Very nice indeed. I bet it costs a small fortune though. IOW couldn't you buy a self contained trailer instead? If the prices were comparable the lower weight of the unit pictured above would allow it to be towed by a smaller truck, where as big ole camping trailers require a 3/4 ton truck or bigger.

I'd imagine this would have more roomm plus the trailer has quite a bit of ground clearence -18", making it perfect for hunting guides.

LOL, the one they had all hooked up at the show as lights hanging from the cieling loops, a tv, and an AC unit ( there are ports on the sides to hook them in)

I dunno, my wife thought it was cool. You know what I'm getting at

Oh, plus the double wall.........people can't see through the sidewalls
