Many have contacted Compact Camping asking how to build a multi-purpose camping trailer.
A trailer with multiple personalities; something to use for camping adventures one weekend, and a run to your local building supplies store or the dump the next week. I’ve done a few of these and customers have done a number of variations on the idea. It’s the perfect way to maximize the benefits of driving a smaller vehicle with extra space only when needed
The focus is upgrading from sleeping in the dirt to a roof top style tent unit from my Top-Tent site. Because the starting point for this approach is some form of utility trailer, I refer to them as a Utilitarian. There are many types, sizes and styles to choose from. Personally I like the smaller 4×6 ones.
Our roof top style tent units are easy to elevate above the side walls using a set of our No Weld Trailer Racks.
