A new 2nd hand trailer for my quad bike. Sorry, only know metric measurements,  90lt water tank with electric pump, 160w solar panel and 120amph deep cycle agm battery with mppt controller.  LPG gas bottles and jerry can holders plus a few more luxury things like folding table and shade awning.

Purchased this trailer that I’m going to convert to a camper/off grid set up that I should be able to stay in for up to a month away from civilisation. Plans are to have bulk water (about 350L, more if I can fit it), plenty of solar power (lithium batteries), and a motorbike on the draw bar (if it’ll fit).

Very nice! It looks like you could put a motorcycle mount up front, and that would be the best load weight location for it. Maybe also a propane and solar water heater, and a camp stove/oven.  Plush, if you have a good battery bank and enough solar capacity, you could put an off-road capable eBike on it too.  I recently got a Rad Rover eBike with fat tires after seeing a buddy’s of mine. He takes his prospecting and they work very well, including Up to a 40 mile range.

I plan on kitting it out completely (I plan on living in it). The draw bar is quite long thankfully and it’s currently to light, so having the weight of a bike on there should help with that.

I certainly can’t justify the prices of new Chinese import hybrid caravans, so this is the next best thing (some of those things carry prices upward of AUD$70k!). Not sure I’ll be going the e-bike route though, I’m a petrolhead at heart.

I still have a Honda Trail 90 too, it’s slow but a mtn goat with its compound 4-low.  You could put a front receiver hitch on your truck and put your motorcycle up there, it will stay a lot cleaner when you are driving around on dirt roads.
