Awesome to hear, I sold my camper and now debating which trailer, I can get a brand new 2014-15 from a state away but it's the 6x8 and few accessories do about 6k, or I can get a show special shopped from Utah since no local dealers, but I can get the 6x12 with 8foot tent shipped for about 9k, I'm torn because my camper sold and I have 6k cash and could get the 6x8 np just have to travel to get it, but I wonder if I'll have regrets about not going bigger and having that extra deck space as the kids grow and the extra "toys" are needed. What would you recommend having owned one for some time?

Btw they updated my quote since they sold off some accessories with the smaller trailer, seems I'm still about 6k (5800) so it just doesn't seem as good of a deal anymore, which is partly why I'm looking at shipped from Utah option....if you were me what would you look at doing?

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.

In your case, get the bigger one since in your case, you will need to put more then 2 quads on the deck. Plus you would want the bigger tent with having kids. Plus you will have more storage space inside with the longer tent.

 

In our case, the 6x8 is fine since there is two of us and no kids. We always ride quads with no plans for a side by side. A friend just purchased a side by side and is interested in a 6 by 8 so we put his machine on the deck to test fit it, and it fit fine. (A Polaris General 1000)

 

Who is the dealer that has the 6 by 8 jumping jack? This guy is interested in getting one now that he saw ours.

The dealer is in Ohio, they are no longer an authorized dealer. I'll send the contact info once I know for sure I'm passing on this deal 😉

Im going to try and sort out over the holiday weekend

The guy who is interested in a Jumping Jack called them yesterday and they told him they can ship it right to his door for a total of $6,500. (They are on sale for $6,000 and to ship is $500) This is for the 6X8 unit (the one I have)

We are from Northeast PA, to drive to Ohio and back would be a considerable road trip and may not be worth it.

Let me know if you pass on the deal

Yeah I'm going to pass on the OH deal, I sent them an email and told them I didn't want to regret not getting the larger trailer, I can send you the info, yes I am getting it shipped to my door for $500 also, it is more $$ and it's the market price for 6x12 (8495.00) but a few freebies are included which is nice, I wonder if the smaller trailer goes on sale and the larger ones they throw in some stuff, sadly some of it I won't use until I get more accessories but I'll hold onto them (example: adapter for cooler racks etc but I'm not getting cooler rack to utilize adapter)

I'm excited and nervous all at the same time, but there is a 2 week waiting period so I'm putting deposit down to get the ball rolling ...lmk if you want the phone number to other place, maybe they'll make you a better deal than they made me 😉

This is the location of the trailer, JTI Trailer, it's a 2014/15, good luck in your search, if you are going to do the other option find out soon, sounds like they take bids from 3rd parties and if one is coming to MI in a couple weeks, you might want your trailer on it too 😉

With he past few weeks being hot & humid, I came up with a way to have redneck air conditioning in the tent.

Amazing what you can do with cardboard and duct tape 😁

Kept us nice & cool on the warm humid summer nights.

Nice a 6 x 12, you will like it. You will also like that you can store gear inside with the tend closed. I think  I posted a picture of how I arrange my gear to store inside the tent. It save a lot of packing.

Its good you got the right sized drawbar, When I bought my Tahoe, I also got the all season package which has larger wheels and even a 5 1/4 drop was not enough. I had to get one of those adjustable ones and set it for 7 inch drop.

Make sure you check your vehicles ratings before adding a tongue box, you don't want to exceed your tongue weight.

Mike

      So I decided to pick up a small trailer if I could get one for the right price.  I found this one for a few hundred bucks on Craig’s list.  It is  a galvanized trailer which is exactly what I was looking for. The wood was shot and needed some minor repairs which I could care less about as long as the chassis was good. 
      I striped it down and put a new deck on. I had some vinyl realtree graphics that I had laying around so I added them to the fenders which I think worked out well. Very happy with this little guy.  
      I'm having the iron workers at my jobmake me up a few lightweight side rails that will have a 22 degree bend in them to accommodate the tires that slightly hang over the edge and will incorporate some tie down points as well.

      So with this mess going on outside and the stay at home thing happening i wanted to ask who's getting what done around there house, apartment and property or toys? 
        I honestly cannot believe what my wife and i have accomplished over the last few weeks.   Unfortunately we have worked ourselves out of work!!!    I have to give all the credit to my daughter for the below listed work. She came to me a few weeks back and said daddy since we are stuck in the house can we do my room over.    I was in a keep away from everyone hunker down and lets just get through this Coronavirus mess.  She changed the entire direction of our mood and how we would push through this.    I have painted all the kids rooms and did a make over per say for each of there rooms. While the painting shit was out i decided to continue and paint the moldings over with one coat of semi gloss in the entire house.    After that we decided to tear the closets and drawers apart and sort out all clothing, donate what we are not keeping etc.  I picked up a couple of shoe racks to organize my sneaker collection from BJ's $20 bucks for a 3 tier rack.    Cleaned every nook and cranny of the house, windows, walls, radiators, ceiling fans you name it including pulling the furniture out and getting behind everything! (Scary back there) lol.   Shit we even did the inside of the oven with easy off!  That stuff is no joke btw..... I assure you we are clean people but after pulling the furniture out and the oven and refrigerator i have to say we need to do better with that shit.     We decided to go  to the back yard and see what we could do. I went ahead and painted the foundation walls, added mulch and set the furniture up, bbq included.  I added some cool light stringers across the yard as well from Amazon.      We are looking at what to do in the front of the house next.     We made a list and tackle a little each day, Saturday and Sunday are big task days. Im still working so afternoon tasks are maybe an hour or two each day.   We have been very productive to say the least.  I feel like this is the perfect time to make the best of a bad situation and it keeps our mind off of the shit going on in the world while we work.     This may sound like a lot but making a list and tackling realistic goals at the end of each day works well. Plus a lot of 🍺  and 🍷!!!!! The kids have been helping out big time and we try to keep it fun.    We hopefully will never have the chance to do this again but i was wondering who's doing what if anything at all.  Our regards go out to anyone that have been affected by this virus weather it be family or friends.    I recommend making early trips to Home Depot and BJ's and the grocery stores to stay away from crowds and lines, its a ghost town early in the morning.      Believe  it or not that Suzuki Eiger is fixed but still needs to be put back together and here i am on Quadcrazy asking who's doing what around the house but the Suzuki can wait for a little while. 
        Keep ya head up and stay motivated!!!!

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.
