    I would guess if the suspension units and tyres can carry the additional weight it would be ok...... might need to upgrade them...

    It used to be very popular years ago before everyone seemed to get rich and buy 30 grand motorcaravans.

    I used to use a box trailer only 4ft wide, got all the tools and camping gear inside and then balanced the craft on top.

    Trailer tents usually need some sort of frame on top to support a craft as the lid can be quite flimsy.

    im sure have i seen pics of someone that cut a big hole in the back of a caravan and stuck the craft in that, not sure how they sealed it up to sleep in it tho.

    why not think about a vw van? i picked mine up for 750 quid, last year and its brilliant.
