Now that we've figured out our transportation (van) and living quarters (wall tent) we were left with the problem of hauling our gear around. We researched different utility trailers but never really found what we needed until we discovered the SPACE Trailer. Since getting hooked up with one of these beauties we're now carefree and unintimidated by cross country travel! In contrast, a couple years ago we traveled from Minnesota to Florida in our vintage 27ft Travco motorhome. That was a neat experience and all but the benefit of having a cargo trailer instead of a 10,000 lb motorhome is convenience! We make more stops along the way, can find parking easily and if necessary leave the trailer at our camp when we make runs for supplies/food. Having one of these has also allowed us to convert our van into a small (clutter free) command center/bedroom.
We tow the SPACE around with our 2WD Astro van and barely notice it. There are also some neat add-ons that make life just a bit easier. For example: we have the adjustable Space Bars installed which works perfectly for our 90 watt solar panel (the photo above was shot a few days prior to mounting the panel).
The SPACE was conceived of by a couple of mad geniuses (Todd and Brennan Olson), two brothers from Waconia Minnesota. Visit their farm and you'll understand what I'm talking about. It's part theme park mixed with free range chickens and the coolest bachelor pad (barn) you'll ever see!
This page is all about the gear and clothing that we use while in the field. To be honest, any product that gets posted here is pretty darn good!
