Hi. My husband and I are new to the idea of towing a trailer, but we’re planning to buy one soon for future long trips (like driving to Alaska). We also want to be able to take it into local campgrounds in New Mexico, many of which involve driving 30-40 miles on dirt roads which can be rough in spots. If any of you are familiar with NM, I’m talking about places like Snow Lake in the Gila WIlderness or Iron Gate in the Pecos. We have a 4WD off-road F-150, so the truck is no problem. It’s the trailer we’re worried about. We like the Retro 177SE, because of the set up of the bed. Plus I just like the Retros in general. Does anyone have any experience / advice about taking this trailer off pavement?

These Riverside Retros are very low to the ground. I have a hard time getting mine out of my drive way with out scraping on my curb. They do make a 3″ inch lift kit but even with that installed they are still pretty low to the ground. I know that I wouldn’t want to take my trailer on anything other then a flat dirt road. As soon as you start going over dips and what not your going to get your self into trouble.
