Camp/adventure trailers

Recently returned from an Australian adventure, and realised that a roof top tent configuration was fun, but we've decided a camp trailer may work better for us.
We had a new Toy LC with a v8 tdi- that was pretty awesome. Saw a few Rovers including a Perentie in Alice Springs.
Looking for suggestions on what to look for, what to avoid, what to include, any manufacture recommendations.

thanks!

Just FYI if you're thinking of getting another Lab or a larger dog again, RTTs kinda suck if you're expecting them to be in the tent with you.

It can be a struggle, but after getting her into and out of the tent for so many years it has become routine. If I had to do it all over again I would purchase an off-road teardrop.

I'll post up a picture of Luna later today. 8 month old Greater Swiss Mountain doggie, not going in a RTT.

Didn't consider a RTT on a trailer- still had the RTT on top of the Toyota in my mind! So far, she's proving to be a good off-road dog.

A better choice for camping with dogs, "senior" folks or people with tiny bladders. I'm sure my next camping rig will be an offroad teardrop.

May want to head over to ExpeditionPortal and browse the expedition trailer forum, lots and lots of different experiences etc over there..

Adventure Trailer has a nice off road capable Teardrop option now, working in cooperation with SoCal Teardrops that you may want to consider. They also have their Oasis fold out. Both are spendy, but nice..

Check them out starting around the 2 min mark in the following Video..

Went to the Overland Expo near State College saw a Latitude Camper. Ordered a Everest I soft top and Sean said it could be ready mid-winter. Can't wait!
