    My uncle has been camping once a twice a year in his custom TRENT (TRailer tENT) for several years now. When he has it all decked out he sets up an air conditioner, mini fridge, microwave, bunk beds for the grandchildren, etc. it all folds down and the roof tarp doubles as the road cover. He really loves it when people ask him about it. :grin:

    Not to be outdone, his son created the TRAMPER (TRailer cAMPER) by building a utility trailer and sidewalls to fit an aluminum camper cap for a long bed Ford truck. A tarp over it makes sure it’s watertight and doubles as an awning. Without the bed it functions as an enclosed trailer for hauling is motorcycle.

    Those are so interesting!
    I'd love to see pictures of the inside of the TRENT...

    I know, I wish I would have taken some of the inside. This was a short weekend so he just had a platform for a twin mattress inside. For the full setup he has a unit built with an upper and lower cabinet and built-in style microwave. If I remember correctly from last fall I think he just put up a second platform above his bed as bunk for the kids.
