    My new (to me) Combi Camp trailer

    Just scored this Danish-built '85 Combi Camp tent trailer the other day. I've kinda had my eye on it for a while, just down the street from my dad's house. I dropped in on the guy on Saturday and asked him if he wanted to get rid of it, he said, "You wanna haul it off right now? I was just going to take it apart and dump it..."

    I said yes, I'd definitely take it off his hands...

    I picked it up Monday, towed it home and opened it up. The tent is in surprisingly good condition, very little repair needed. The floor is a little spongy and there are a few cosmetic issues to deal with and he'd removed the tail lights to use on another trailer, but other than that, I could just about use it right now. It'll make it's debut at Shaver Lake. It only weighs about 300 pounds, my Rover barely knows it's there...

    I plan to do some modifications: a bit of lift, bigger tires, a small kitchen unit like the newer models have but that stows on the tongue, maybe a shower unit...the possibilities are endless. There was an optional add-on room that could zip to the side, I'm hoping to find one somewhere (or have on made) but I'll just use an EZ-Up for the time being. It's amazing how quick and simple it is to open and close.

    The attached pics at the bottom are of my unit, the first four are linked from a VW page I found that shows how simple it is to set up and what it looks like with the added room.

    This thing is cool!

    Dan that trailer is SWEEEEET! Way easier to set up than my Apache Eagle and lighter too. Wanna trade? ;-) J/K. That is a great find and will do you well at Shaver Lake.

    If you add a lift, you will need to buy some blocks to place under the "floor" section to allow it to sit level when the trailer is open. Just FYI.

    Actually, I'd planned to make little telescoping legs and weld them into the corners of the rack for just that purpose...
