Here's mine, 2005 Ford F350 just a base model truck but its paid for. 6.8L, auto, oh and its got a factory trailer brake controller :D plan to get a trailer of my own around tax time or maybe sooner, never know
When I first bought it, it had this work light on it. It was cool, fun during drunken parties however it wouldn't fit in my garage so it had to go..

I put down some bed liner
Image
and added a badlands front plate
Image
how it looks these days, I got used to the light on top, I took it off and it looks naked.

I'm currently trying to decide if I want to do a small enclosed and make living quarters up front, (and keep it with in the truck's weight limits) or just get a open single place car trailer which is most likely the route I will go..

question is, what do you want to haul on the trailer.
i've seen several "hybrid" trailers with a small cab/box up front and an open deck out back.

Thats a really neat idea, however if I would go to a enclosed trailer it would be a full enclosed trailer. I would only be hauling my YJ or KJ. Neither at the same time..

I can see some benefits to the hybrid design, especially if the rig to be towed is of an oversized nature, or gets particularly dirty. you could also have a narrower box, sized to the inside of the fenders instead of the outside. just that much could make a difference in some cases in terms of ease of use/visibility.

Yeah but it would nice to have a enclosed heated/air conditioned portable garage to work on your junk in if you break something on the trail..

Nice, thats what I need so I can move my own arse wherever I go. (Seem to be moving alot lately) Between the roof rack, back of the jeep and the flexibility of that trailer... doo doo it all still wont fit :(

For you,

Id think open trailer as who knows how tall your toys may get... just my thought.

yeah I agree, that would be my only limit, the height and width of the trailer door opening.

yea, that's why I'd think a hybrid might be more useful. plus if you really need weather protection, some creativity with some popup tents or something that folds/rolls/accordions out from the box could be made to work. I was thinking about that last night... some kind of skeleton framework that comes off the back of the box and legs into pockets near the back of the deck, then a top and sides that just roll out like a retractable screen would.
