Either modifying one of those old M8 or M416 trailers or building one from scratch. If I can get a good deal on a military trailer then I'll go that route.

I'm in the process of getting a parts list together while also looking for a military trailer. I'd like to eventually end up with something like the Chaser style trailer.

I have mine mounted on my homemade expedition trailer. Details are in my build thread (link in my signature). I need to get some better, and more recent pictures of it set up.

ARB on our Manley.

This is from our first real trip out with it last summer. Headed up to Moose River Plains Wild Forest in the Adirondacks for some remote camping.

Nice to have a basecamp so we can head out & fish/explore. We usually bring the yaks so the roof is reserved for those.

@Dirtco your build is amazing, I've been looking all last week and is what has been pushing me to go that route for my RTT.

m(a)ce do you have details on your set up?

Well last night was the maden voyage of the Autana on the ForeRunner and I have to say despite the bellow freezing temps we are hooked!!! We got to the campsite at 9:00 PM and got the tent and annex setup in under 15 min in the pitch black. I am really glad we bought the annex.

Airing out after last nights fun! If you are camping in anything colder than 30 degrees f I recommend picking up a condensation mat for sure. There was a lot more water under the matress than I expected!

My New Home...

Well Ducmonsta has been getting on me about not posting anymore, and he really gave me a hard time for not showing off my latest addition...

I can't say enough good things about this company...visit them at moabaz.com! They are great to deal with -- excellent customer service, great attention to detail, and very driven to satisfy the customer.

I just got it a week ago, and these pics are from a dry run, in my parent's backyard, to see how everything worked and what I might be missing. I only forgot to bring a can opener!

Happy Trails!

Not sure yet, haven't had a chance to hit any real trails yet; but getting it to the spot in my parent's backyard did require some "light" trail riding...didn't even notice it was back there!

Ic ic, i'm guessing by your abundance of equipment you had the tent on the roof before right? I am just curious if you have any pics of the awning on the Runner?

I started a list of build threads catergorized by generation of 4Runner. Lets keep this thread alive with much BS and good times lol.

Tomorrow I am going and looking at a tracker 2 Thule Rack to replace my crude Unistrut rack.... It would work but i want to fit in the garage from time to time and that means I have to pull the tent off and it is a ***** to do with my current setup...

Got my Thule rack! I don't like it.... its sits too darn high!!!




I'm going to build a base for camping I think so when I want to go somewhere I can just drive out from under the tent...
