Our new-to-us 1983 Coleman Columbia. According to paperwork included with the sale we are at least the fourth owners. It is in fair to good shape and I plan to refurbish and modify it enough to successfully use it for our style of car camping on Forest Service roads which according to my research here on PUP these past months you all refer to as boondocking. 1983 Coleman Columbia Our tow rig is a 1990 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 which alone served us perfectly well for camping until the recent birth of our daughter. Having just a bit more space to work with when camping prompted me to begin searching for a tiny pop up. I set my sights on a pop up trailer while my wife was pregnant and was glued to Craigslist. My criteria was a trailer with a length of less than 11' - 6" and sub 1200 lbs. The ability to add clearance through a lift or reversal of the springs to allow for a larger wheel and tire was also key as well as the possibility to upgrade to a sturdier axle. Our family backpacks a lot but when we car camp instead it's generally pretty spartan, consisting of spending most of our time outside so the trailer didn't need to be large nor have much in the way of amenities. A simple cook range, small furnace, sink, and five to 10 gals of water storage, and comfortable sleeping surfaces were all that we needed inside. Modifications will consist primarily to the axle and suspension and "tightening" everything about the frame and body up to withstand 100+ mile trips on gravel. Second priority will be building a table (parts already ordered). Next priority will be re-plumbing water and gas (as needed - have done no testing yet) and upgrading the electrical system to allow for lighting on multi-day backcountry trips (addition of a deep cycle marine storage battery to my truck may go along with mod). Last priority will be to construct or buy an awning. The whole point of a trailer for us is to keep us warm and dry while being outside as much as possible so an awning to sit and cook under will round out our build nicely. The build threads I've read here on PUP have been hugely inspiring and I hope to perform mine successfully enough to share with current and future owners of similar rigs as mine.
