...but my big post got out of control so I thought I might as well give it it's own thread...
It started out innocently enough...

They prevent rocks coming off the back wheels of your towing vehicle from ricochetting off the trailer and smashing the back window of your truck or road rashing your trailer.
Be easy to fab one up for a man of your talent.

No worries mate.
Badlands wrote:The stone guard looks great and I bet it will keep mud from getting all over the front of the trailer as well as deflect rocks, I love the trailer by the way, it looks really rugged, I would love to see some more pictures of it all set up for camping! is that a tent on top?
It is a tent on top but alas neither of those trailers are mine. I uploaded those pics to my photobucket to avoid the hotlinking thing and for future readers, years from now. lol
Camper trailers are the de-riguer off road camping method here in Australia. Most of them use a trailer specific variation on the roof top tent for cars dealio.

Most follow this basic pattern...

I lust after a Trak Shak <-- clik, so much awesome personally. Two double (queen) beds, plus room for the dog or another person to sleep (or stow bags/gear etc), a huge room, a huge second room or annexe, factory solar 12v, all the amenities like slide out - pull out kitchenette (nearly all camper trailers have these) and so on. Or just flip it over and sleep in the first bed section if you're in a hurry. Fuckin' hawt. INCH in style.

moar Trak Shak pimpin' (definitely not your average camper trailer)...
