This might be a dumb question but why no trailer hooked up to a 4x4 like the M1101 as a bug out trailer? I gave a lot of thought about using a trailer before deciding against it for a number of reasons.

My brotehr has literally ridden across the country from Key West to San Fransisco 3 times in the past 4 years. He uses a small trailer he made, and racks on just about every inch of free space on the bike to carry all his gear. Imagine a sudden SHTF, everyone has clogged the roads, and you decide to bug out with family. Many people evacuated after hurricane Katrina wound up hundreds, sometimes thousands of miles from home. You all get on your bikes after dark, ride down to the nearest (now unused) set of railroad tracks, deploy your guidewheels, and ride for the rest of the night on a smooth empty path that never gets steeper than 5% grade. We got a very good deal on the land ($ 8750) because it is very remote, is totally off grid, sits at 9700+ ft, and the road leading into the place is rough dirt that doesn't get a lot of winter maintenance so the chances of anyone coming down it are slim even in good weather.

I am working on a re-building a 22' travel trailer, that was given to us a couple of weeks ago by one of my wifes co-workers, (a new Instrucable is being worked on for the renovation of the trailer) as a replacement for the GP Medium that I hope to get finished by the end of spring that we can leave at the site and have something a little more comfortable to sleep in while we build a more permenent shelter.
We are seriously considering buying an acre here, there, and everywhere, so we have lots of options.
