Before Dinoot Trailers, building a trailer to match your Jeep required cutting and welding old Jeep tubs together then days of body work.

I like to think the Dinoot J-Series tub kits are a game changer; setting a new standard for Jeep Trailers.  Now anyone with basic DIY skills can build their own matching Jeep Trailer.

The link below points to a thread I began on Tventuring as a place to collect Dinoot J-Series Jeep Trailer examples, information and photos.  Check it out in our forum here.

On the Tventuring forum we have created a thread to be a place to post interesting compact setups members find.

These posts stimulate thinking and help home trailer builders hone in on what the ideal design of their home built camping trailer or rig might be.

The compact styles are just cool.

The thread is up to 42 pages now and always growing, check it out here.

Here is a sample of what members found:

Enjoy driving a compact vehicle and camping adventures? Then you likely deal with the dilemma of not enough space.

Wouldn’t it be great to make your Subaru feel like a Suburban?

It’s actually easy; build yourself a compact camping trailer.

Most people think of Teardrop trailers when compact camping trailers are mentioned. There is another, Tent Topped Camping trailer which have great advantages. First, they weigh about half as much as a teardrop. Next, the folding tent unit provides much roomer sleeping quarters. Finally, with your gear packed below, no unpacking is necessary for jumping in bed.

With basic DIY skills it is straightforward to convert a few sheets of plywood, a tube of glue and a handful of screws into a great compact camping trailer. Then you get the satisfaction of telling curious fellow campers – “I built that”.

To get an idea of what is involved, review the Explorer Box DIY Trailer Overview!  You’ll be happy you did.

For the Tent Topped campers out there, how long have you been camping this way?

Here was my first trailer and tent unit from about 12 years ago.

After using roof top tents on trailers and vehicles for a few years, we began the business of sharing the benefits with others by selling roof top style tent units.  We have been exposing the joys of Tent Topped camping in roof top tents for eight years now.
