    So, in all seriousness, what do you think this trailer is worth? I am curious as I compare it to AT and other quality trailers I am trying to determine a market value for this little guy. Our family has grown to 5 total and we have added a 100 series to our stable. We are contemplating adding a pop up camper but this little guy has to go to fund it.

    I would start at 14K...there's lots of proof how it's built...no detail was passed by.

    It is specialized, and anyone that wants to add a serious matching (to a 40) one off trailer...this is it!

    I liken it almost to a collectors item...just my 2 cents.

    Drew,

    You MUST keep this trailer. Your kids/grandkids need to fight over it when you're too old to camp.

    Thanks guys, its bitter sweet but I think this would be our last season. I know I'll regret it but something with some kind of interior fits our family better than living "around" a trailer. I'm tempted to cut the rear of my 40, convert it to a 45 cab and bolt the trailer where the bed goes as a solo adventure vehicle!

    Don't cut the 40! Sell the trailer and reap the reward of building something awesome. You will build another one someday when the logistics make sense. Buy something that you can get busy having fun in.

    How bout buying a cheap tacoma 4x4, single, extra, or double cab, and replace the bed with your camper? Build it with a tray and support legs to where you could disconnect it, and drive around, back under it, and reload onto the truck, and drive home.

    Thats what i would do with it.

    'Great looking bugout trailer you made!
    After using it for awhile, what are your thoughts on your electrical tongue box setup? Could you give us an update? What would you change, add, or not use again? Any details on your batteries, charger/inverter, connectors, etc. would be great appreciated. Thanks

    The time has come: My family has outgrown this trailer. :(

    I will be auctioning it off on eBay this fall. Stay tuned for updates.

    Maybe it is hard to know the value... eBay lets me know what it is worth.
