Opinion only, an RTT top mounted on the rig is a decent way to go however daily driver not so much, you can equip the rig to handle all the accessories fridge, shower, stove. Best unit I've seen so far for the JKU applications is the Ursa Minor big bucks but drop and goI'm thinking a trailer is the way to go if you want to do some 4x4ing while out on the trail. Having to unpack a rig and unmount stuff from the top/back seems like it would be much more trouble.
Is there a good consensus about which is best if you like to do more serious 4x4ing while on a trip?
No butcher, that's what they are called, the ones I've seen are well built, but costly. Profit is one thing flamboyant is another, my opinion only
I like these!Anchor Mountain Overland makes custom overland trailers.
Our standard Overland Utility Trailer (OUT) starts at $4250 and comes with a black powdercoated frame and tub powdercoated in a number of colors. A custom made 65" wide 3500lbs torsion axle, LED lights, aluminum tailgate and 17" wheels with 285/70/17 tires are all standard. The tub is 60" x 48.5" inside with an additional room for gear on the tongue. Each trailer is built to order in Fruita, Colorado.View attachment 17616
Thanks!!I like these!
The UEV 490 is my absolute dream trailer. Unfortunately theyre not imported into the UK yetI'm leaning towards the UEV-490. My Jeep will be getting a 5.7 Hemi soon. Should make it much easier to tow a large expedition trailer like this (already have heavy duty axles, gears, breaks, etc...)
I was going to put together a list of trailer manufacturers, but when I searched, I found a great resource on The Adventure Portal
They have a spreadsheet with several manufacturers listed, with web links, phone numbers, prices, etc. [LINK], but I'm sure this will change frequently. So if you are in the market, look around and see what's available. Please post links to any other sources or manufacturers that aren't listed. No need to list distributors, as that is region specific.
Three that I know of not on the list are
Sylvan Sport Go http://www.sylvansport.com
Taxa's Cricket and Tiger Moth Trailers http://www.taxa.us
Backcountry Box's Roady and Rocky trailers http://www.backcountrybox.com
It's actually Schutt Industries, "America's leading manufacturer of industrial and military grade cargo handling equipment" and their severe-duty XVenture Trailers.
Being the owner of one for the last three years, I would have to disagree with that assessment.I would recommend stay away from Moby 1 trailers. Personal experience. Better off elsewhere....
