This one weighs 385 with a 20 pound tongue weight. You should be able to see all the specs at http://www.TimeOutTrailers.org. It pulls real nice.

I bought mine in April, 2016. Cost was $3895. I added a spare tire and carrier ($75.00), A/C stand ($119.00), adjustable cooler bracket ($55.00) and bearing buddies (15.00), bringing the total cost to $4159.00. However, I walked in with a pocket full of cash, put it on the table and got a pretty decent discount. I bought it direct from the manufacturer, Time Out Trailers, in Elkhart, Indiana. Their website is http://www.timeouttrailers.org.

In my day-dreams I imagined a small trailer with a 3/4 in plywood deck the size required to act as base for a small pop up tent. Of course in order to make the floor large enuff for the tent base I would need to put a second layer of plywood that would unfold to increase or double the floor area. Need leveling jacks on corners etc. Obviously the tent would only be erected once a campsite had been selected and rig was stopped. In my imagination this would be CHEAP. VERY LIL WIND RESISTENCE. AND GET ME OFF THE GROUND WHEN SLEEPING. Just a thought

It occurs to me that I'll have a blind spot as the trailer is going to block my right-hand side mirror. I'll have to come up with some solution to mount a mirror off the sidecar I guess. Has anyone already done this?

I bought a clamp on mirror as a temporary measure but it could be permanent. I stuck a 3 3/4" convex mirror on it because at that distance it has a small field of view without the convex mirror. I clamped it to the sidecar grab handle. I did have to add a piece of rubber to make the clamp go that small.
Sorry about not including a picture but am busy packing for CRAP. Heading out tomorrow morning.

Contact Wildhorse Cafe. He has done something with a tiny trailer that expands to a sort of mansion, or something. I am not sure what it is, but it was impressive. I think it was pretty small. and also inexpensive. It is just from his "Buffalo Trip" last year...
