Mikep123456 Posted May 13, 2021 Share Posted May 13, 2021 Looking for some advice. My brain feels like a hamster wheel. Here’s some background. I originally started out with 23’ cargo trailer with 2 pop-up-fold out bunks, insulated, electric, canopy etc... very Spartan like inside but served it’s purpose. I sold it due how terrible it towed down the road. Not sure if it was the height of the deck or the height of trailer. Something wasn’t right with it from the start. I traded it on a standard all aluminum 8’ x 23’ car hauler. No insulation and no electric etc...I also bought a 34’ travel trailer and set it up at hunt camp, put a permanent pad in but is under the tree canopy. 3 years in the Michigan weather was about to take a toll on it. I would take it to the car wash each spring and fall for a good cleaning. Each month I’d make a day trip to fight the battle with the mice. I actually had that conquered. No mice the last 2 years. Anyway between 7 hour round trip and $30 in mice prevention I decided to sell it before it was substantially devalued. I hate losing money and to particular to let rot away. I don’t want to break the bank, so I have been trying to figure out how to haul my defender and have a quick and easy camp. I can rough it...my wife not so much. I have an outhouse at camp. She will use it reluctantly. I’d sell my enclosed trailer to help offset the cost. I have considered a pop-up with a cargo deck but don’t know if they will haul a defender. Thought about a shed/cabin but that doesn’t allow me to go to other areas to haul and camp. Still have the battle with mice etc... and the maintenance of it being in the woods. I’ve also considered converting my current trailer into a camper, but since I’m not all that handy I’d have to pay for the conversion. Cost would add up fast. Anybody have any ideas to allow me to haul and camp? Being able to store at home would save on the wear and tear from the elements and with the mice issue. I currently store my trailer under cover on a hard surface. I don’t want to pay to store 2 trailers. Thanks in advance for any advice.
