    Custom small camp trailer for 50" trails

    Here in Utah we have quite a few 50" trail systems (just the way I like it) and I like to do multi-day camp trips with friends and wife. Last year I built a 50" camp trailer that has a tent that folds out. It is still a bit too large for sharp switch-backs and really rough terrain, just ask the wife...

    I finished this new trailer last week and it get some odd looks...it has only one wheel. Look close and you will see that I used a tractor PTO as the hitch coupling. It is a much smaller trailer and we will have to sleep on the ground...oh well.

    As soon as the snow melts I will have to do a mountain ride with it. So far it tows like a dream but I have not had it on any real rough stuff yet. Thought the designers and builders on the forum might get a kick out of it. There are more images of it in my photos. ChrisName:  2.jpg

    Yep, I had seen them as well. Thanks! Here is what I built and used on a 500 mile 5 day ride last year. I just wanted something a little smaller.Name:  DSC_4099a.jpg

    Well...I took it out for a test run. I have only had the one wheeled trailer on pavement up until last weekend. Took it to the San Rafael Swell over the weekend and did about as rough a stuff I think I will ever do with it. I am very please with it. I had only planned to use the video to review how it tracked and handled but after watching the country the camera captured I put some music to it. Hope you enjoy.

    There is not a standard ball and hitch setup. I used a tractor PTO yoke universal.Name:  0322190947.jpg
