$2250, is that new, list price? I thought those things cost more than that. I actually need one myself although I don't know if I can swing even that price. lol

Let us know what it does to you gas mileage.

WTF?

yeah, $2250 new. though it was "on sale". I think they took 7% off the list price. You can find them cheaper but you get what you pay for. Inside and out the Carson trailers are rock solid.

my tacoma got 22+mpg empty.

That dropped to about 17-18 mpg with the popper (450 lbs but a lot of wind resistance)

with the trailer full I get about 14mpg.

tacoma is a 6cyl auto. 2wd

couple nice upgrades today:

I had Weld_It help out. He stopped by with FlashyP and their were on their way to Waco. I tried to tell them.... it's Hu... but they were too busy snorting creatine.

anyway we pulled out the torch and added brackets for shelves.

After that it'll be setting up the solar unit and wiring it for 12v.

12v system is installed. LED interior lights:

I just purchased a 12v water pump and a 21 gallon tank which I will install next week.

Hopefully my inverter will power my monitor and keep my laptop charged. Next install on the interior will be a fold out desk.

Shelves have been made secure.

Look at all that room!

I now have a second 21 gallon water tank to add to the system. 42 gallons of pressurized water.

Does anyone have an "old" car stereo (12V) that has mini-jack input (for iPod) they'd like to donate or part with at a fair price? speakers are needed as well. Solar powered music is the next upgrade.

Easy enough install. an extra joint half way down my forearm would have helped. Otherwise easy. Just hot and sweaty in tucson when I did it.

thanks for the the link to a stereo.
