This may be a real puzzler How do I build a tent around a suburban hatchback attached to a bumper pull horse trailer. Answered
I camp with horses for competitive weekend rides. I have a 2 horse bumper pull that I pull with a large Suburban. Because the horse or horses usually have to be tied to the trailer(competition rules) it is safer to leave the bumper pull attached to the suburban. I have been living and sleeping out of the back of the suburban and I need more room and privacy when we finally get back to camp from riding all day.
The bumper pull has a tack room located on the same side as the passenger side of the suburban. That tack room is loaded with tack, feed, hay and water as well and depending on the campsite a portable potty.
I would like to find a way to run a tent from the suburban back hatch,.over the trailer hookup to the trailer and encompass the tack room. So basically the tent would come off the back of the hatchback which I would leave open of course and most of the living walking and storage area would be on the passenger and tack room side.
this way I can enter from the side ....be able to insure my tack stays dry ..keep coolers and other equipment contained and still sleep in the suburban. One little thought is that I may need to close the hatchback and lock the suburban when we are all away from camp. although there is usually a camp steward who stays in camp.
Oh...Did I mention this has to be fairly easy because...1. I am pretty builder DIY limited even though I do give it my best shot and 2. During competitive events there is not a lot of time to set up for human needs as we are judged 24/7 those weekends on how we tend to the horse's needs.
THANK YOU SO MUCH
