Vangard looks very interesting -- well done, DB! But their website lacks floorplans and detailed specs, as far as I can tell. I've already written to them to ask for more details.

I had a 14 footer with tandem axles.... go figure.
The guy that bought it had an old-school Nissan Hardbody with 4 banger and he towed it off uphill just fine.


I’m sure anyone can come up with any one off example to “refute” something for the sake of refuting it.
Fact remains, little campers generally don’t come with tandem axles and they don’t need them. And the OP would be s ucking sidewalk with his rig and any tandem axle TT I’ve seen.
That said,someone will refute that too, so I’ll go first. I used to tow our approx 6000lb wake boat with my 1974 CJ5 with a straight 6.
(Out of the garage because it was too tight for the truck. And once, down the road a couple miles to the local ski club lake).
But thanks for sharing your unique experience...

The Patrol is the one I'd want. I saw it in person a few years ago at the NW Overland Rally.

If you study the photos enough, you can figure out how it's laid out (floorplan).
The nice thing about the Patrol is the bathroom and shower in the back. It was a lot of cabinet / closet storage space too.
