  • Our Explorer Box Construction Manual makes it simple to build a durable plywood based compact camping trailer.  Think of it as a recipe; follow the instructions and out pops a ready to use Explorer Box camping trailer. The manual takes you step by step through the process, with details, dimension drawings and photos of each step.
  • Our  ABC’s of Home-Built Camping Trailers guide is for folks with some ideas of what they want in a compact camping trailer that seek guidance about undertaking a project of this nature.
  • Our Dinoot Trailers  are modular fiberglass panel kits which simplify the build process.  They are currently two models available.  A J-Series which has distinct Jeep styling cues and an M-Series with classic M416 military trailer styling.

We carry a few different folding Rooftop Tent Units to cover a range of various needs. These Roof Top Tents can be used for Trailer, Vehicle and Truck top mounting. They were originally developed for back country expeditions and safaris in places like Australia and South Africa and are referred to as ‘Rooftop Tents’.  We have a dedicated site for our Roof Top Tents and the accessories only found from us – Top-Tent.com, for detailed information  and available in our Store.
