We are upgrading to a sprinter van and J5 from a truck and a utility trailer with a backyard pit. I see a lot more porch trailers, but the sprinter van works for my mountain biking hobby. Wish we had enough property for both. Either way, life will be much easier next season.

I've got a 40' 5th wheel with a porch that we use, I can pull in to a contest and be ready to start cooking in 10-15 minutes. Clean up takes about 20-25 minutes.

It's actually for sale. Follow this link for all the details https://www.facebook.com/pg/Smokin-H...57760239833747

Here's a good secondary question to my original... Who here competed without a trailer at first? How much better is it having one vs. not?

It's very much more gooder to have a trailer .

If you only did it a few times a year pop ups can work, but being able to get out of the elements with a place to sleep, ac, bathroom etc is night and day.

Before our trailer, we used 2 canopies, and a bunch of coolers, etc. Slept in chairs or the bed of a truck (still do that except one person sleeps on trailer floor). Transported everything in the bed of a pickup truck. That's all fine and good and we may actually do it that way again sometime; however, the space to work inside the trailer, the fridge, the water, and dry storage space is quite convenient compared to dealing with tents and sideways rain and loading tons of stuff in and out of our truck. Personally I think "roughing" it is pretty fun at contests but having a trailer is easier.

we competed for a few years in pop up tents. Carried everything in the bed of my truck and my dad's SUV, carried drums on lugage racks. Upgraded to a very simple, low budget, porch trailer with electric, and AC. We've built it out from there. Still don't have water, but it's nice to have cabinets. How much easier is it? There is no way in Hell i'd go back to cooking under a tent unless it was some kind of special event.

I started out using a canopy. It worked fine but it was a lot of work. I was usually by myself and I got home feeling like a truck had hit me. I don't mind working hard but when I was burning all of my vacation days to do comps I wanted to at least relax a little bit :)!

Sure thing. Here you go. Hard to get the whole thing in there, but it’s the width of the trailer and 32” deep, with a shelf in the nose.

We got the trailer through southern q trailers but it’s a Freedom brand trailer.

That looks like more than enough space. I’ve talked to Scott, definitely where I’d go to get one built. Thanks for the pics!

Why not do both? Get an RV and pull a small porch trailer behind it. Best of all worlds.

I've got a porch trsiler being built by Red Fern Dynsmics. Going to have full size bunk beds in the front with TV for sleeping and the kids, full bathroom with shower and on demand hot water and then a kitchen prep area with an 8 ft enclosed porch. We are going from a toyhauler, which was great as well just a little longer to pack up and load and unload the Deep South.
