Hi John, Thanks for the advice. I really don’t want to pull anything behind me. There are times I get well into a tight road and have to turn around. Its hard enough with just the truck. I know some folks that manage to swing a light trailer around but only with a bit of effort. So, I’d like to stay within a 4 wheel footprint.

I thought about leaving an rv trailer as a basecamp but then I would have to return to fetch it or spend a night. I’d rather just stay where I am and camp. I’ve been doing this in the back of my truck but no way my wife is going to join me. I seldom use campgrounds but my destinations are seldom offroad either. Just some rough gravel/dirt. So, no rock crawling or overlanding but certainly 4×4 at times and long way from towns.

Appreciate the advice. Don
