Picked up one of these this year to improve our riding and camping. Its a jumping jack trailer which can haul quads or other stuff on the deck, and then opens up into a nice sized tent. We have used it four times so far and really like it. There is even room inside to store gear with the tent down which really saves on packing. The model we have hauls two machines. but they have other larger ones and one size smaller.

Why did it take me so long to find your site!

I'd love to see more, I've been on the fence about getting one, I can also get one for a good deal but hard to find here in MI.  I actually didn't realize you would have room to put stuff on the floor when packing up, that is good to know!

We don't use the half bed extensions so it gives us a lot of room.  The front gate can turn into a table and we also set up a 10  by 10 easy-up for extra outdoor space. All stores inside the jumping jack. This year I am going to get the small awning to provide cover over the gate. You can also detach from the vehicle and leave it  by itself.

Very cool, yeah the one I'm looking at will have the 4 extensions for 2 full sized beds, I bought 2 air mattresses to use on top for extra cushion, we'll sleep 2 on each side, wondering if my ez up tent will fit in there still with all that. Do you run extension cord through to a power strip from shore power? I'm considering getting battery and solar hook ups also for boondocking. Will research all that more later on.

I have found the cushions they provide are enough. I have an air mattress but don't need it with this.

Of course after a good night a sitting around the campfire I could sleep on a bed of nails. 😀

 

With 4 bed extensions it will limit how much you can store inside. You will just have to play with arrangement and see what you can do. I added the propane rack which allowed room for adding a battery. I run a few camper LED lights with built in dimmers. I also  use a 50 watt solar panel when we are camping primitive. Not shown is I also have a box I built with two 12v outlets and 2 USB outlets. It also  has a battery meter in it.

 

You can see in one picture there is a small velcro patch which allows passing wires and such through the tent. We use a buddy heater connected to the propane for heat. I also carry stuff for when we do have power available or if I bring a generator.

Just a note, there are not many dealers on the east cost, when I was looking for one, I had contacted Jumping Jack and they could bring one to a nearby dealer (about 20 miles from me) for $700. Then I lucked out and found the unit in Maryland. He discounted it enough it was worth the road trip to get it. ( 4 hour trip)

Yep I found one about 3 hours from me, it's a new unit but a few years old, the dealer isn't listed anymore on jumping jack website and this trailer has been there now for the 2 years I've wanted it, but I need to sell my fun finder camper, I like my little camper but I want a trailer to take bikes and kayaks with us vs having a tv and running water (although I will miss that, I have researched on demand propane water heaters). Not to mention the upkeep and fear of leaks all the time. I just want simplified camping, you can see the price and accessories I can get, I think a great deal, but the funds will come from the sale of my camper, I have about 5 families lined up to view once out of storage.

All the accessories are discounted as well that would be a good deal. The unit I bought was a 1 year leftover but new.

I do know the warranty is from time of sale, not manufacture.

I don't understand why they are not more popular. I have friends who travel west to hunt and they see them all over the place. Its a unique way to camp and a great way to haul machines without needing a ton of towing power like a toy hauler.

Yes I agree, I like that we can take out lawnmower to dealer for fixing if needed too, can't do that with the fun finder. I think pros and cons, it'll be cold here in MI but we only camp in summer/fall anyhow. A neighbor said never again to a pop up because they had bears tear through end of it, I could see that being a negative, too, but summer when hot the air is nice, but I've read about making air conditioner from 5gal bucket, and also you can buy them now for a few hundred that run off of electric. I plan to look more into the road showers too, was thinking on back gate. I super excited and hoping I can finally get it this spring! Then convince hubby to go with us will be the kicker :)

Yep and that's why I think the hubby will love it once I get it

btw, my camper was bought with my work bonus because I wanted a camper in 2014 and hubby doesn't care to camp, we camped a few times a year then ball life took over with kids, so a lot of work on myself getting trailer level and hooked up etc, I can manage but the kids hate it because it takes so long with awning, rugs, level because if not perfect fridge won't work etc, too much....

Since it has a lot of inside space, we have used a buddy heater to keep warm. I have a hose that runs out to the 20 pound tank on the trailer.  I have the quality unit, has a tip over sensor and low oxygen sensor. We camped when it dropped into the upper 20's and was warm with it on low. I just kept one window open a bit for air.

 

This weekend it will be the opposite, HOT. I am rigging up air conditioning and will see how that works out.

      out of the blue my vinson wouldn't shift into park and when I am in H or L and go past a slow pace (maybe in 2nd gear) it grinds and Low grinds even louder. It sounds as though it may be in the rear diff. I have not tore into the rear end or anything yet. I was looking for advice before tearing it apart. Reverse has no grinding at all and H gear doesn't grind until you get moving past a walking pace. L grinds as soon as it moves. It shifts into gear smoothly and 4wd works just fine. There was no issues leading up to this. Any advice is appreciated thanks.

      When running for a while the rancher will shut off without the fan turning on. We then took it to dealer where it was started and warmed up. The fan came on at the dealer so they then replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump. We got it back and ran good for a few days with the fan coming on when needed. Now its back to shutting off before the fan ever comes on. It seems like the time the fan should come on the bike shuts off. It will start after letting it sit for a few minutes. Any ideas of the problem?

      So here's a topic for anything goes forum and to get a way from the china virus stuff...lol. Has anyone been noticing the small drips of news about ufos and the government confirming? President Obama has an interesting late night segment. How warm and fuzzy do you feel when an ex-gov official confirms objects in the sky they can't explain...
