Yeah it sucks. We just sold the motor home to so we went back to sleeping in the trailer at night. So all our kids toys and crap go in there to. Lol
Worst part is unloading everything to get the car out once we get there.

Have food poisoning in a hotel room during a trade show weekend and it will seem like a real reasonable thing to do. PRI was awful that year.

You can build a cable/pulley system that hooks the pulleys to the front D rings and you tighten the front of the car down from the back. I have this setup for my 16 enclosed tag and have hauled camaros, Mercedes and an S-10 pickup in it.

I decided to wait and either buy a 28' or a 24' without the L cabinet. That was one sweet trailer but I know I would have not liked the vinyl floor down the road.One of these days I'll get the Intech of my dreams

With triples, double side door and extra height.
Everything else you can add slowly as you can afford it.

Good luck.

I'm leaning toward this plan. I was at Eddyville this weekend and the enclosed trailers seemed 50/50 dual axles to triple axles.One thing though most of the triple axle trailers had living quarters in them. That would be real handy on a weekend like this where it rained both Friday and Saturday nights.

I always wanted a slide in camper, then I towed with a 5th wheel and was hooked.
Now I want a 5th wheel with small LQ's.
Nothing fancy, just a fold out couch and bed in the attic, enough to sleep 4.

A place to get out of the rain and get some sleep.
I love my big ass triple TAG, plus we really don't travel far with all the tracks we have in this area to absolutely require a LQ rig yet!!!
