Has anyone ever built a camper “pod” that will slide in and out of a cargo trailer? I have a 16’ tandem axle trailer that I am thinking I could build one and still have room to haul my 4 wheeler if I wanted to. I would only use it 2-3 weeks a year so I don’t want the hassle of keeping another trailer around for that. My trailer has two 3500lb axles under it and pulls like a dream.

I would appreciate any ideas or experience.

some friends had a utility trailer they camped out of it worked well it was setup with a spare window near the front of the trailer a roof vent and they had a raised futon like bed he was very big she was very small so it worked

the back had a mosquito netting the doors could be left open

once all his sound equipment was out the short counter on the side swung across the back doors to make a kitchen space at the right height for standing at the back of the trailer the mosquito netting came down and they got good ventilation , want to close it up just close the back doors


a few windows and some cots and you could easily camp in a 16 foot trailer folding table , just take that stuff down move it to the front and pull your atv in and tie down

the windows install fairly easily you cut a hole and htey have a flange with caulk and a bunch of screws to pull the 2 sides together

then there isn't even anything extra to store

or are you saying your trailer is not an enclosed utility trailer ?
in that case a wall tent might make the most sense and just make a big weather tite box to haul it all

Google home made campers and it will give you some ideas.

It’s a flat bed cargo trailer.

Look up "campers made on boat trailers" for ideas

Exactly my plan. I was hoping someone had done something similar here. I found a decent channel on YouTube where it was done.

Thanks for the replies.
