I really like your setup, out of the box thinking and your philosophy with your FX Mr. Bracket.

It would make a lot of sense on many types of rides to be able to carry a couple of peoples stuff to camp, drop it and go ride.... or travel with it.
This fall Nancy and I are planning to ride on a month long trip possibly doing the TAT again, your trailer setup sure would make things easy with packing and unpacking, camping everyday in a different place.
While I have shown one way to pack the FE, I have no illusions about what it will be like to unpack and pack it day in and day out with my current setup. I'll get more proficient at it with experience, but just like my Wolfman Expedition Panniers I use on the big bike, using every available inch in a soft pannier can be tedious when moving each day on the road.

I already have a huge Pelican case I used for transporting big Apple MacPro media servers, having a 100% everything proof box on the trailer would be appealing to me, since we have super lightweight camping stuff the added weight of the pelican would balance out I think. Maybe add a big cargo net to the top for even more flexibility and short term storage for firewood or beer, etc.
One Rotopax for fuel, one for water... I'm liking this more and more....

Get out there, Stay out there.... I like that.


Do you offer it in Blue instead of red though?


Can you share what handlebar mount windscreen you have in that photo please?

Thanks for sharing, it gives me something more to ponder while planning the big ride with Nancy.
