We saw these semi-custom Tradesman Toppers at Overland Expo last May, what do you think about this option for heavy-duty Off Road Trailers?
The Access Manfuacturing Website doesn't have any information on these toppers, but they seem like a good idea for many wishing to expand the use of their trailer. Perhaps with enough interest they could mass-produce a setup like we see here.
The Path One from Rugged Path Trailers looks like a great entry level, smaller Jeep trailer. The size is perfect for older CJ style Jeeps or newer Jeeps with a smaller engine.
We don't have much more information on this trailer yet since the company is so new, but we're excited to see more of this option!

You’ve seen the original version of the XVenture Trailer by Schutt Industries in the first season of Expedition Overland. It’s a stout off road trailer built to military specifications to handle years of heavy-duty use and abuse.
At Overland Expo we got a sneak peek at the latest evolution of the XVenture, which will be featured in the upcoming Season 2 of XO. This version of the trailer has several significant upgrades over the original, including:
Like many, we've had our tow rig (a 2007 FJ Cruiser) for many years before getting into the ORT game. This last week we did our first major road trip with the truck & trailer and noticed that while our FJ is awesome on the trail, it's not amazing at towing a 1500lb trailer uphill in the wind, especially running 33" tires. We're looking into upgrade options to help remedy the situation. So we're wondering what the best upgrades are (in general) to make a tow rig perform a little better on the highway.
With the publication of FJC Magazines first review of the Manley Explore trailer in the April 2013 issue, the question once again comes up: is it better to buy a trailer ready to go, or to build one from a used military-style trailer?
To put the cart before the horse, the answer of course is that it depends on your situation. Time and money are the two main variables in this equation, but don’t forget about skill.
We picked up our Manley ORV Explore trailer a couple of weeks ago and have spent a little time with her so far. The initial review will be published in the April 2013 issue of FJC Magazine, but here's a sneak peek photo of the lid opened up. So far this trailer lives up to the hype and we can't wait to get it out on the trail!
