Very small utility or cargo trailer

Yes, I just bought a 94 Jeep Wrangler and want to take a slow trip[not to China] to So.California from Southern Indiana.

Plan on stopping, and camping, or lodging on the way and seeing some interesting sights...unless I freeze to death? Figure I'll stay at a resort-camping, hiking-scenic sight. Just me and ol' faithful, my dog. Would choose to take a lady but she's already taken.

Okay back to topic: I need a small trailer to haul some vital items. Guessing about a 3 or 4 ft. square trailer. I can pull only 2000 lbs, I hear. Even something smaller might work?

Does anyone have a trailer similar to what I want? I'll be driving westward from Evansville, In. I might drive through Missouri, or I could go the warmer southern route [likely] through Oklahoma. It may be a 3 weeks or a month and a half before I am organized enough to leave. Plus, I possibly could buy a trailer along the route?

Here's my number if you have any advice or want to talk about trailers.

Thank you, Tom!

Not sure what your budget is, but you may want to keep an eye out for a motorcycle trailer. They are small like you want, and some are pretty aerodynamic too.

I used to own a small trailer we bought for tent camping. It was made by Sears and was called an X-Cargo.

(I don't know what caused the yellow stripes on my red car. I remember it being an extremely bright, sunny day. Aren't computers fun?)

I sold it in 2005 for $100, having bought it in ca 1975 for $400.

I see Fred Meyer selling trailer platforms that you can add your own body to.

Look for a Coleman Versa trailer. They were made for only a few years around 1980. Looks similar to the above posted Sears trailer. Many had a fiberglass top, They had a front and rear tailgate, box was about 50" wide and 5 feet long. They were also available with a canvas camping option and wood rack sides. The width and front & rear tailgates were to allow a sheet of plywood to be laid flat in the trailer. I have one that I found on ebay, I lengthened the tongue to mount a three bike rack, and we use it every April for a trip south with our daughter and her 3 kids.I've also seen some little trailers that look like the old Sears Xcargo roof carriers but on wheels.Then there's the little popup campers that could be pulled by a big motorcycle, see them occassionally on ebay or craigslist. Or how about a teardrop trailer, our 1946 teardrop weighs only 650 lb and sleeps two. Bob

If I could get into one I would look at

Roughneck Adventure Trailer - Compact Expedition Trailer - Outdoor Sports Cargo Camper

They don't list the dry weight.

That reminds me, I used to have an X-Cargo car-top carrier. A clamshell unit that was maybe, oh, 4 feet square and about 18 or 20 inches high, I think. Not sure if that would be big enough for your purposes, but it's a thought. This thing simply strapped to the top of any vehicle.

Look on E-bay motors, military vehicles. There are some old Jeep trailers on there and they make awesome off road utility trailers.
