Or maybe look at Yakima's "Rack and Roll" trailer on yakima.com. You can even buy the wheels seperately if that is all you want, although they're not cheap. I saw one o these up-close in the canoe shop and they look pretty decently-built with trailing-link coilover suspension.

Spare wheels are listed under accessories on that page

I like the idea of keeping it basic eg no full on galley and maybe only shelves inside.
But I would only have 12V (Iknow Bledsoe, adding weight) not a/c power.
Paul :thumbsup:

Yes I agree cut out all the heavy fancy stuff and just have what's actually needed because let's face it we are just going camping in a rain proof tent right , we just need one of those one or two burner gas cooker with a 2 kg of gass for fuel. And have shelves with a good size ledge to stop everything falling off could build the whole thing out of Xps foam with cloth one it ah what do you reckon ?
