Jackwagon Off Road builds their Basecamp trailer to be similar to a military-style, but more of a basic box trailer.
Their 48 Cubic Foot trailer has a load capacity of over 1,000 lbs and includes a Tepui RTT as part of their basic build, for only $6,800.
That price also include 3 285/75/R16 All Terrain Tires, diamond plate fenders, and a tri-axis hitch.

We just found out about a great CVT group buy over on IH8MUD.com. Depending on the tent you purchase, you could save over $700! The special runs through March 15th so don't delay if you've been wanting a CVT (Here's a review from FJC Magazine). They're also announcing their new Mt. McKinley tent, which is basically a double sized tent meant for families.

How much storage do you need?
Face it, the main reason many of us start dreaming of an off-road trailer is to carry all of our great gear into the back country. It could be because our family has grown and we need the space in the truck (as is in the case in our family) or it could be that you're sick of packing up your vehicle every time you want to go wheeling.
Perhaps most importantly, many want to be able to spend an extended amount of time off the grid, and a well stocked trailer makes it much easier.
We've thought long and hard about the best way to do a comparison of overland style off road (or expedition) trailers that would give you a good basis for starting your research.
With so many brands, styles, and options on each trailer - it's nearly impossible to do an effective comparison, so we had to think 'inside the box' for the beginning.
The original developer of the Dinoot Trailer is working on a new project: A DIY fiberglass trailer that's built to original M-416 military trailer size specs. This looks like it could be a very inexpensive way to get into a fuller size off road trailer without the expense of an all-steel or aluminum model.
Will there be any interest in this type of trailer? There are many plusses and few minuses to the idea, and of course it's still in development.
