    I have a dome tent. I'm sure I can find a trailer to stick it on and get back to you.

    I was toying with buying one myself, but my wife decided against it for me. Anyway, I looked at the coleman and the viking. I really like the colemans as they seem to be built a little strogner and have more options. On the other hand, the viking has a lifetime guarantee on the lift system. That was a big seller to me. Hope this helped, or at least didn't confuse things.

    if youre bucks up there are two or three companies selling off road camping trailer custom made to match your rig... some are rubicon tested.. hot showers with a fold out tent.. but spendy 5k and up..Regular tent trailers get thrashed off road (Ive got a coleman)
    you get what you pay for...
    funny you mention this.. check out my post question about a 4 wd camper on my blazer
