Our first trip with the tent and trailer. I absolutely love it. If you're thinking about getting one, look into http://www.morrismule.com/ Simple and effective. You get a lot of trailer for the money. Morris is a real nice guy who takes customer service to a new level. I was worried about having it shipped so he was willing to assemble it and drive 300 miles north to meet me. I ended up having it shipped anyway. Here's a couple of pics

Sorry about the pics, I can't figure it out for some reason

A few years ago I had a rack made for my TJ which allowed the crossmembers to be unbolted and got extra corssmembers made, this way I can easily remvoe them to change accesories or change the tops. Looking at the pic you posted it seem the rack you are looking at will do the same.
I already have a rack, a Smittybilt Kargo Master, but no accessories (no basket, whatever else there might be...). It might be fun to build a platform for a tent.

Sometimes I am a toss and turn sleeper.
Make one wrong roll and THUD!!!
Impact the ground 7 feet below...

I might need side rails!

For now, the rack is perfect for canoe transport and trips to Home Depot for lumber.

I have the same rack as you do and the tent bolts right up to it without a platform or anything else for that matter. I just turned the long bars on their side so the bump in the bars was poited to the side rather than up. Drilled new holes and off you go!

Trailer is awesome, if your looking into one give Morris a buzz.

Nice rig! Drop sides on the trailer are awesome! The tent over hang makes a small covered area underneath to the side of the trailer. Cool!
