We took the fixed Loo out of our Hunter-II and replaced it with a Dometic SeaLand 975 porta-potty on a slide out track. Looks like this:

And "Old People" is not an acceptable phrase hereabouts for any reasons given.

Have a look at Kimberley Kampers from Australia. Their tandem axle models such as T3 are exactly what you seek. Don't be too spooked by the MRSP, the listed pricing is not reflective of what USA buyers pay, there is a significant discount and the dollar value to consider. The feature list is here:

Panther Paw... very nice & thx for the link.

Kimberly trailers...yuppers. way cool. Nearly everybody that had dreamed of trailers over at expeditionportal.com forum puts the Kimberly at the top of a short list of off-road capable trailers.

On snuggling...yea, fun stuff. & Cari and my ~30ish nights in the hammock(s) this season was nice, but ummmm, we did find ourselves stealing away for 2someTime during random times of the day. And as we fast approach 60... I can't see how those 40 somethings can hang it up. their loss.

funny stuff.

While they aren't fiberglass trailers, these might fit your needs. Take a look at Timberline Range Camps. Most are smaller but here is their 25 ft model. Highlander 25′ | Timberline Range Camps™ - Sheep Camps - Sheep Wagons

Or you might look at converting a cargo trailer. tnttt forums has a lot of examples Teardrops n Tiny Travel Trailers • View forum - Cargo Trailer Conversions

Elk Mountain Trailers converts a cargo trailer for you.

Good luck

I think the best choice for boondocking is either a van camper or a truck camper. Either can park in a normal parking space.

I think of boondocking as perhaps dry camping on BLM land, no one around for acres. A parking space is meaningless. Sounds like your idea of boondocking is what I consider "stealth camping" which means dry camping in urban areas, often on streets and in parking lots.

Boondocking refers to, well......camping in the boondocks. Far away from civilization. The use of parking lots for stopping over, which I do use, is just that......parking,not camping at all.

At least, this is my take on this.
