Speaking of trailers...The Idaho Bedroll

Post by offcenter »



This guy tried hard and long to get some company to produce and sell this trailer for him.
I haven't heard anything about it in a while. I don't know how his efforts panned out.
But I love this thing!
(he nicknamed it "The Spud")
This one does actually work. He's towed this prototype all
over the western US.

Edit: Maybe he's selling it himself. I found a website.
Not much info though:

That is a neat little trailer. Is there some way to enclose it to keep rain or dew off?

Yes, I've seen other pictures with either the screen folded over the open side, or
with it completely closed up.
Believe me, he's thought of everything. It even has a set up for his
laptop tv so he can use it while laying in bed, a on board battery
to power interior lights and the computer, and hidden
compartment for his handgun.

This is a great idea, nice little teardrop for a solo rider that doesn't need too many comfort items. I particularly like the slide feature to keep it small for towing but big for room. Something like a Kelty Noah's tarp over the whole rig would provide needed shade and rain protection. 8-)

What about bug protection? Those no see-ums can make for a sleepless night.
