This is stemming off a FB convo [MENTION=19]Yaj Yak[/MENTION] were having a bit ago, since I don't want to clog up [MENTION=85]EmersonHart13[/MENTION]'s thread, here's a place for destination ATV adventuring as well as cool ATV hauler/campers, ATV trailers and bolt-on accessories for overland use.
[MENTION=340]Eagle[/MENTION] and [MENTION=2616]Chester Copperpot[/MENTION] may be enticed as well.

My eventual goal is to start doing more high-adventure ATV trips out west. I'm attempting to put one together this fall in Colorado, but will just be staying at a friends house and trailering to different spots.

This is something I'm very interested in picking up in the next year or so, except optioned with a front deck big enough for two ATV's... You can get them 2-3 years old used for sub $10,000. I love the hard-body pop up idea, as I don't want something with soft canvas sides, but, also like the size benefit of a pop-up.

I bet! My biggest "gripe" with a pop-up style is that 90% of them don't have bathrooms. That's one thing I'd really LIKE out of a trailer, but probably wouldn't "need" per-say...

I'd like to have a camper for events like KOTS (bathrooms on site), where you could get into some A/C every so often, as well as festivals like Country Thunder (porta-potties all over) so realistically, I can't think of a scenario where I'd absolutely NEED a separate bathroom, but it's always nice...

I can always do one of the little portable ones and I actually have two of them at home from past boats, but, it's not "ideal"

This appears to be a pretty solid setup manufactured by a company called OMF called the ATT camper, might be a bit much for an ATV as it's marketed as a "UTV camper trailer" but fuck it, Foreman is up for it lol.





Sorry for small pics, all I can dig up ATM

I believe they have that on board but they also only stay at campgrounds with amenities so its a different setup.

They are just a really nice popup compared to the fabric ones.

God that is so unpractical. Why not just double stack the quads and shorten up the over all length

Yeah, there's a lot of wasted space, but I really don't like the idea of the rear garage ones where your machines are straight up in the camper... Much less to clean with an outside platform.

I really like those platform campers. I was looking at them hard until found out they only fit ATV's. You can't get a UTV on there without modifying the platform somehow. Really a sweet set up though IMO

Why not? The one [MENTION=3061]Lead Pipe[/MENTION] posted has an 8'x10' platform with what looks to be at least a 3' v-nose. I'd say most UTV's will fit on that. you might need to get creative loading it, but, it could surely be done.

These Kolpin fuel packs are on my ATV list as well for longer trips. I have 100+ miles easily of fuel range with my quad, but, if I was going out west where there aren't continual bars with gas pumps, I'd definitely want some "just in case" fuel... I already have a box, but, I'd like to replace it with something like the one pictured. Mine has "armrests" that do nothing but spleen kick you on rocky trails with a solid axle, so I'll probably put that one on my Polaris and get something nice for my Foreman. I also want to get a small front box for tow straps, shackles, etc. so I can keep the rear box clean for clothes and stuff I don't want to get dirty and wet.

That is the thing. They are long enough but not wide enough. I don't see how you could put a UTV on there longways.

Nah, it'll probably be this weekend/next weekend. If it was that far out I'd definitely oblige! What weekend are you going?
