Why not pitch a tent on it? I did at Washita and was glad I did with the rain and snow that night.

That Rice is expensive but I'm sure you get what you pay for. I priced one out with Retco and will likely go that route. Still on the fence with utility v. flatbed.

I've used car trailers since I started racing in 1965 and have had many different kinds. My last one here is a race car trailer purpose built for that one thing.

It is a 17 1/2' dovetail tread plate floor with ramps that you unpin the flap on the dove and pull the ramp straight out 6' and 20" wide for large tires but handle my 3" wide front tires on the race car also. This ramp/trailer design is the best I have had in the last 40 yrs. in the floor towards the front is a locking box large enough a spare, tools and all tie downs. Recessed into the floor also are 4 swiveling D-Rings to tie down with. Its setup for a winch and battery with the very front of the trailer made so a windshield/car protector in somewhat of a semi U shape. The doors on my race car even open over the fenders.

The name of the trailer is a Clipperton. It hauls my XJ very well and pulls like a dream always you can not even tell tour pulling it.
