One problem with a trailer is once in the CG, you have to find a place to park or store it.

I really like that idea, thank you. Besides maneuvering in tight areas, a hitch would allow me to use a bike rack. Better and better.

I am sure towing a trailer will limit my CG options somewhat, but I will be only 43' total length.

I agree it's the Rubicon suspension and tires that I don't like as well but I wanted something I could play with off road doing very little too. The Rubicon fits that bill perfectly and like I said it's not my daily driver so I can live with the downside.

1980 Triumph Spitfire owner here...frame off resto.

That aside, I think you just put me on the perfect trailer. I was drooling over a Roadking but realized that you can only get them in Australia.

We towed a MG Midget, 4 down, until the chassis cracked and the tow bar broke off. It was fun while it lasted.

Well Sir,
I don't know what model/year of your Jeep but, we've had 9 of them in the last 35 years and have driven them all in a daily routine. Our present one, a '15 JKUR is a pleasure to drive. We've taken it on many trips from here at home in Lake Havasu City AZ to San Diego for family get togethers and it's always very comfortable to drive.

And we have many, many friends here town that also really like their Jeeps. As usual, it's a matter of opinion on what's comfortable, what's easy, what's economical, what's practical and all that. Jeeps, especially the Wrangler versions are not all that economical for sure. But, to us, their just plain fun to drive.

I have a 15 2 door Rubicon and never said they weren't fun to drive, but as a daily driver I would much rather drive 14 F150 for the comfort and quietness.

Agree the Trailex is a great little trailer; have set up a Honda Fit now but we also use the Featherlite 3310 open trailer (a ~5-600 weight delta but like durability and resale values) to pull our VW Sportwagon and motorcycle turned sideways in front of it. If RV parking is tight I've got a hitch on the back of the Sportwagon to put the trailer in a convenient hole. Just the route I took...
