I am looking for ideas.

Roof top tent or small overlanding style RV trailer?

What's the best balance of agiility and comfort to do short trips?

I’ve been building this thing. It’s been quite the project, with no light at the end of the tunnel. Lol.
It’ll have filon siding, timbren axle less axle/suspension, 35” tires, etc.. Pretty bare bones. Basically just a temperature controlled, dry dry place to sleep.

I am interested in the Casita. Tons of Jeeps out there towing them. Basically any trailer that a 4-door JL or JK can tow, I think is fair game. Biggest catch I have seen has been the class III trailer hitch for some of the trailers on the upper end of the tow rating.

Nuthin'.

It might be able to tow my riding mower on a trailer at best but it won't do it any better than either of my trucks.

I think I recognize this build from the FB squaredrop group?

I'm currently building 3 teardrops, all of varying size and purpose. I'm going to use whichever one best fits my trip at the time and have them up for rent the rest of the year.

Pros: Relatively low entry cost. You've always got a bed with you.
Cons: Increases height. Increases center of gravity. Decreases MPGS. PITA to take off when needed. Vehicle sways when you toss and turn. You might break your neck trying to take a piss at night.

Off-road trailer

Pros: Relatively lightweight, even for the Bronco. Self contained; everything is packed and ready to go. Built in kitchen system makes meals delightful. Take it with you on the trail and camp where you stop. Stability jacks provide stable sleeping platform.
Cons: High entry cost. You can take it on most but not all trails. You need to plan to use it; not helpful if it's sitting at home.

Camper

Pros: Higher level of comfort than the previous options; bathroom/shower.
Cons: Even pricier than the others. Not generally off-road friendly; need to find a basecamp to come back to.

As long as it will tow my side by side I’m good.

Something around 2700 lbs dry, I may go a bit over 3500 loaded but couple hundred pounds isnt going to be an issue. I am use to towing 9000 lbs and a whole lot bigger so know how to set it up. Also in the future may switch to RV route and tow the Bronco, either way I am base camping as part of my retirement.

I want to get an xventure xv-2 for towing. But for now it will probably just be our 18 foot bayliner
