The Mark I came from a very specific need we discovered on our first roof top tent adventure. We set up camp, got everything situated, and got our campfire going. We started prepping dinner, and we discovered a trip ender. We forgot the marshmallows. No big deal….oh but we have to pack up everything to drive our Jeep to the store…..This meant no Smore’s (pronounced shmores) for dessert.
The Mark I is crafted from ¼ inch thick square and round tubing. It takes a massive machine to bend the tube, so there aren’t many trails that will make it nervous. We have contained 100% of the wiring inside the frame, so you never have to worry about stripping the wires off accidentally on an obstacle. The taillights are fully submersible and tough, but also extremely easy to replace if a tree just so happens to jump out behind you when you are backing into that perfect camping spot. Our entire concept for the trailer was to keep it tough, keep it simple, and leave room for people to do what they need to with it. We believe we have achieved that and hope you do as well!
The Mark I is our family camper. We named it “The Hiker” because it will take care of all of your needs as a hiking family. It has a 2000lb axle. It measures 48” between the fenders. It has a flat loading deck that is 44” wide. The loading deck is 80” long. This allows us to maintain an extremely narrow profile so the Hiker can follow you down any trail. The dry weight of the trailer is 600lbs. This gives you 1400lbs of gear capacity for hauling!
