A "simple" solution.....
Not cheap
Not easy
But simple.

Get a small fiberglass egg trailer woth a lift kit axle (Casita, etc.) And a flat bed truck with a rollback or ramps. Carry the Casita on the bed while towing the Airstream. Leave the Airatream at your basecamp... the then towfiberglass trailer to thw back end of beyond. Rd Fiberglass is easier to repair.


Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Final Boondock Tip....

It is wise to walk the site beforehand and formulate a plan. But, just as significant, when leaving a site, hook up and pull out a ways, then stop and take the time to carefully walk your vacated campsite. Several times we have found important items that we dropped w/o realizing it and would have been in trouble at the next campsite. Also, it's a good time to do a final cleanup sweep: always leave the campsite cleaner than you found it.

3 years ago we were walking a 'road' to scout for a boondocking spot and both agreed there was no way to get a camper down it. At the end of the road was a nice spot with a monster 5th parked!!!

I guess he was more committed than we were.

On the way out we noticed trim parts off of a camper in the bushes...

25' is a good boondocking length. Maybe down the road add a lift kit, get 16" wheels and/or new axles with 33 degree down angle. All those expensive options would give you more clearance. On the free side, scout scout scout. Don't go anywhere you can't back out and remember your gps is not always right.

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.
