I'd really like to have just 3 tents.......

One, a roof top tent. I want a maggiolina roof top tent....... I don't want it on the roof of my Cruiser though, I decided to get an ex-military Canadian 101 trailer and retrofit it to tow behing my Cruiser. I want to put the tent on top of the trailer.

Second tent...... Basic ground tent. Probably something like that tent from L.L. Bean that I can take wherever. The wherever tent.... Mostly for car camping, when I didn't want to haul a trailer.

Third tent...... something like the Bibler Fitzroy. For alpine climbing - light weight and strong.... or just backpacking.


Here is an ex-military trailer someone converted for off roading. Note the roof top tent folded up on top.
