Greer's Ferry Arkansas

Lake Wappapella Missouri

Took me 6 months to build and about $3500 cash. Hardest part of the whole build was getting a title through the state of TN.

And on my old bumper pull ford, I wouldn't have worried at all. However, there is a whole lot of paint in the area of the hitch here.

Turning radius and backing up to the trailer are the concern. I'm hauling it to the mountains this weekend. I'll know for sure if turning radius is an issue after this trip. With that much paint on the rear, I'll just have to be extra careful backing up.

Hey RD, I used one of these on my subie for a hitch carrier but would use it for an extension if I needed to.



I also bought a LittleGiant trailer to use as a camping base for the future and plan to use the above.

Is the upper receiver to take a bike rack? Doesn't look strong enough to take a trailer.

Looks like a lot of ground clearance though - much more than we have with the Camp-inn.

Yes, that's what I use it for, not to pull a trailer. But if I did use it to pull a trailer with, it would act as an extension

I made a roll up awning. The color of the awning sucks but it was free. I will probably dye it or find another color.

Put the Raindrop back into winter storage Sunday. I shed a tear, we only got one camping trip this summer. We have realized that we need to get it out of the garage in early June and start camping then, BEFORE the monsoon season starts. Next summer - will be easier, we found a much more assessible storage unit, I don't have to be TSA badged to get my camper or sports car anymore! Yay!

I have my VRV 615 up for sale in the FM if anyone is interested.

I'm looking to get a Four Wheel camper or All Terrain camper to replace it.
