    I'm going Saturday. Going to take lots of pics for ideas on building my own off-road trailer.

    I spent last weekend up around Quemado in the snow and cold. 24 degrees at night. I am looking for something more comfortable this week.Name:  IMG_0006.JPG

    And yes, I am camped in the middle of the road. It is a wilderness study area and you have to stay within 10 feet of the road. Right here there are two roads about 20 feet apart that cross a wash, so we camped in the middle of one of them

    Cool! How do you like the MOAB trailer? I'm going to build a trailer and debating whether to use leaf springs or go with a torsion axle. How does the torsion axle perform offroad? Some of the videos I have see the thing seems to bounce around a lot.

    It is actually a one-of trailer that I built. It looks like a MOAB because I bought the frame, tailgate, tent, doors, and trim from them. But it is significantly different.

    One main difference is the axles. They aren't the same ones MOAB uses. NOT torsion. They are Timbren. Completely different animal and don't bounce like leafs or torsion axles. It is also a different size than theirs.
