east coast to west coast trip

Me, the wifey, and the pup made a 2 and a half week road trip from VA to LA and back. Towed our little teardrop trailer and did a little mild off-roading. Most of the trip was biking, hiking, and surfing but here are some shots of the jeep taken in Utah. Tons of fun but one heck of a long trip!ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1445392867.772295.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1445392902.274025.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1445392919.875290.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1445392942.560147.jpg

Man, we love road trips. Looks like you had a nice vacation. Utah sure is a beautiful place to offroad on those red rocks and to bike.

Re: east coast to west coast trip

It a Little Guy 6-wide sport. Bought it on the cheap, it needed quite a bit of work, we had to tear it down and replace some of the supports, the expanded metal platform, the axle, and re wire it.

It's got a little kitchen setup in the back but our model had no built in sink or stove. We have a portable propane stove and a 5gal Gatorade jug on the platform for washing dishes.

The inside holds a queen size and has tiny cabinets, just enough room to sit up in bed and watch a movie on a laptop. We have two car batteries in parallel with a charge controller for the solar panel in the little silver truck bed box which go to cigarette lighter plugs in the cab and kitchen area and a ventilation fan on top. It has a 110 connection but we hardly ever use it.

Re: east coast to west coast trip

Thanks dude, I'm proud of it, my first real welding project :-)

Always wanted an excuse to buy a welder.

It feels like luxury after car camping for so many years, definitely worth a look.

Better shot of the finished product, last pic, I promise :-P
