We keep the Hawk on the flatbed trailer and tow it behind our Land Cruiser 95% of the time. My work truck is a Tundra so it's nice to be able to swap b/w both. We do a lot of off roading and with a small family it's nice to drop the trailer and base camp.

Obviously many folks like the truck camper. My comment above was that the "hawk on a trailer" seems to be a great option when compared to the other off road trailers folks are using. The teardrop, the utility trailer with expanding fold over tent, etc. The FWC is just so quick and easy and we love having it on the flatbed!

That's really cool.  I have a FJ40 and have considered doing this---wondering if there is room for a dirt bike under the overhang :)

I’ve got a 40 also and doubt it would tow a setup like this very well unless you use a super lightweight trailer.

My setup fully loaded with water and gear for a family of four is 3,300lbs with 400lbs of tongue weight.

The 100 doesn’t exactly love towing it, but does just fine all while getting 6-8mpg!

Above trailer looks like an AT Overland deck model if I'm not mistaken. That would be a great little base for a trailer mounted FWC.
