i too combine my teardrop with an OZ tent. Great combo for my family of 4, with 2-dogs and a family friend or two.
nice additions to the camper!
Attached images show my mobile command center/compound setup. Including my ARB room and OZ Tent RV-5.
Take a quick trip up to SoCal teardrop to learn about their trailers and meet the owner/builders. They are well established, local, and supportive.
Rent the off road teardrop with rooftop tent at off the grid rentals to see if it works for you.
Joshua Tree is easy to reach and a great place to hike and climb on the rocks. Death Valley is a longer drive, but worth it. Here, you will use your Jeep, many great trails and landmarks. To cool off, we enjoy Big Sur.
