    Was wondering if anybody here has put a slide-in, pop-up truck camper on their utility trailer, and what the pro's/con's are?
    I have a 5x10 util. trailer with side and front rails with the rear gate, the trailer's axle's are rated for 3500 lbs, and 15" tires, which would be good for gettin so so deep into the woods. I think this would be pretty cool, when ya need the trailer for haulin, take the camper off, it.

    thanks for all replies.

    I've seen it done, can't think of any drawbacks. Make sure your camper weighs less than what the trailer is rated for, and has around 10% tongue weight.
