THEMED PHOTOS: Towing Stuff, Especailly Campers!

Just two weeks ago, I got hooked on looking at campers... I just want to see what everyone is hauling with their X's. Especially the camper trailers... With be probably not being able to work here in a couple of years and retiring at an early age, I might as well go out and have some fun in the next half of my life!

Here's my (current) setup that I'll be using a lot this summer (can't take any long trips due to work and my daughter's soccer, but lots of weekend trips will be nice)... Coleman Fleetwood Americana popup tent trailer with two cargo boxes (one filled with firewood, the other with our sleeping bags and gear). Inside the trailer is a very large cooler and our other gear like chairs, lanterns, ect. And you can see my family's bikes mounted. This leaves the back of the Xterra open for the dogs, and now that I have my Dephep rack I may put more gear on the roof if I'm not taking a kayak along.

Well, they do allow a lot more articulation from many more angles than a ball mount hitch, which is important for off road.

But I would rather have something like this I think:
