I wouldn't feel comfortable in a trailer that small.

For a small trailer and occasional boondocking, one would not need as much stuff as that guy has.

I like to boondock and dry camp. The trailer is "self contained," as the saying goes, so it's fun to use it without hookups. However, after about 3 days I find that I do need to add fresh water and recharge the batteries. My strategy this year is to carry a few extra gallons in either the back of the Highlander or in the bathtub (where it would reduce tongue weight in my case), and to use my new 75W solar panel to keep the battery topped up.

Boondock sites can be far more quiet and removed from crowds than most campgrounds will ever be. I like to get away from the city, not go to where the city went to get away (and be in another crowd of noisy people).

Boondocking is what we luv best...

My wife and i have "plugged in" an average of twice a year. The places we prefer are off-grid and typically in forestry or BLM campgrounds. As much as we like people, our time together is precious to us and so we choose to enjoy the great outdoors alone. That desire to be our Happy Hermit selves drives us to find places off the map and grid. . .

So we designed and built our van conversion and our Parkliner for off grid comfort. And we intend on utilizing these rigs when we finally go on the road full time. Having a two room 37 foot articulated motor home works for us

I know this is an old thread.

Thomas, how about the attached? I was just checking out some interesting websites and saw the title. I was interested and then this picture was the first thing I saw. Oh my. Well, different strokes for different folks. None are bad, just... different

That's eye candy, Donna! But I'd need a 1 ton diesel pickup to tow it, I bet. Not to mention the payments... ouch!
