    trailer frame: what did you forget?

    Honestly, things I don't need: a removable tongue. Adds complexity to the build, adds extra failure points. Make the tongue just long enough to jack knife the trailer and its perfect. I Use a max coupler exclusively on and off road. Gas cans mounted on the trailer Extra gas is always carried...

    Best way to secure a Max Coupler hitch when leaving the trailer in camp for the day

    We've towed our trailer for 30,000 miles. 10000 this year alone. We've left the trailer hitched and unhitched in various gas stations, parking lots, campgrounds, and dispersed sites. We'll set up a game camera at campsites, but no one has yet been caught walking up to it after 8 years of travel...

    RTT off-road trailer vs. enclosed camper

    We've been living in/out of the teardrop since June 2020. Our experience has been awesome and we've learned a few things about weather. Before this trip our trips were up to 11 days at a time and all sorts of weather was no problem. We've got an EZUp with walls, for rain and light snow...

    Best way to secure a Max Coupler hitch when leaving the trailer in camp for the day

The receiver side from the truck goes in the same tote, that way I'm not dragging it through the dirt and dust while exploring an area. Sometimes I'll put a cable lock through the wheels and suspension. The trailer side of...

    How often do folks get flat tires (or need to use a winch)?

    Not to jinx myself but in 8 months of full time travel through the US, I've had neither a flat nor used the winch. Last time I used the winch was two years ago to move a tree from a forest road in virginia.

    I need some cheap recovery boards for snow and mud... Any suggestions?

    We've carried the Maxsa Escaper Buddies since we started this trip in June. We've recently gotten to try them out in sand. Successfully getiing a minivan, and a fullsize Ford campervan unstuck. They worked like a charm, with no damage to either the vehicles or the boards...

    It's been a while since I've updated this. Lol. In the meantime we've traveled across the country stopping along the way seeing the sights. We've got a blog up and running if you'd like to see our travels. https://flightofthecrowswing.com Sent from my SM-G960U1 using...
