Hell,do what I did for many years. Buy a full size older 3/4 ton 4X4 Suburban big block and sleep in the back. Pretty damn comfortable for 2.  I had storage in front of trailer and an RV AC unit mounter to top of trailer. Flex ducted into the rear side window of 'Burban.

i have looked at the slide in campers but really not sure on those. i figured if we bought this then we would buy a used 21' or 23' fiver for the camping trips. i did speak with genesis manufacturing today and the designer the salemen spoke too misunderstood the salesman. he thought i wanted a standard 2 bunk electric bed. i only want 1 bunk so it rolls up to the ceiling to open the back end up for a living room during the day. would have the deck too of course. i believe it would be a lighter easier way to travel not just weight but more so wind resistance.

Cool idea to lighten up the load, but the camper just seems small, and where do you put all the tools and spare parts?  And the buggy exposed to the wet weather is just a no!

mine already sits outside with a cover on it at the dunes so no different there. traveling it has never but a good custome travel cover and will be fine. the camper is only 12' inside so def smaller than were used too and the tools and what not would go in the smugglers holds i would install in the deck floor. of course the back of the truck bed would be open too and it has a cover. the 12' camper is the reason i want an electric bed that will roll up to the ceiling. bedroom at nighter and living room during the day. like fabr said we are not in it much at all.

i to like the concept and question the open trailer hauling. now with that being said i did stop and inquire about a custom travel cover by a guy that makes custom boat covers for traveling and custom rv covers. he is on the expensive side but form fit and double layer .  as far as exposed to the weather.....well the only thing i have to worry about is the rugged radio. i will make a cover for the center console and one for the rail and that will be fine. if i stop and nap then i'll be right next to it anyway. the point is to make it eaiser and cheaper to run to the dunes and back. it would make the drive to st a better as well lol towing that compared to my fifthwheel. 8400 empty compared to 5000 empty plus wind drag!
Then buy a nice slide in camper,not some monster thing but a cab over only and a lightweight tag trailer just heavy duty enough to haul the rail. You guys don't spend time inside your trailer anyway but for sleeping.

Only plus I see is the easy access to tying down. Only thing I like about hauling the kids YXZ's on the flatbed. :m I cross strap both front and rear even in the enclosed. DOT habit.

Funny you say that. Just this morning I ws thinking of vavuum forming some water proof front enclosures for the YXZ.s and both buggy's. Will be plenty east to do I think. Gonna give it some serious thought while waiting for new custom dry sump pump.
